With January 2021 here, it’s time for the fifth annual review of my aviation activities. While I mainly do this to have a place that I can go back to remember some of the flights I took and aircraft I saw, I also hope you enjoy reading through it and through some of the articles

Austrian Airlines A319 Business Class Seats

Review: Austrian Airlines A319 Business Class from Zurich to Vienna

While I flew with Austrian Airlines numerous times in the past, both long- and short-haul, it was always in economy class. As such, I was excited to have a chance to try the airline’s business class back in September 2020. Even though it was on a one-hour hop from Zurich to Vienna, I at least

Conference Room in Swiss Senator Lounge at Zurich Airport

Review: Swiss Senator Lounge A at Zurich Airport

After arriving in Zurich from Tokyo back in September, I had a few hours to spare before having to board my connecting flight to Vienna. Similar to the situation at Narita, there was only one Star Alliance lounge – the Swiss Senator Lounge at A gates – open. That gave me a chance to peak

Review: Swiss 777-300ER Business Class from Tokyo Narita to Zurich

While I had taken a number of domestic flights around Japan throughout the year, it wasn’t until mid-September that I got to travel internationally for the first time in 2020.

My Experience with Turkish Airlines’ Customer Service: Not So Good…

With Slovakia having eased entry restrictions, I decided to visit my family there earlier this month. While I knew there was the possibility of countries changing entry restrictions due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and me having to cancel the trip because of that, I could have never even imagined of what almost axed my

ANA 737-500

Flying on a “Super Dolphin” and a Brief History of ANA’s 737s

On June 14, 2020, ANA operated its last commercial Boeing 737-500 flight. That left only the Next-Generation “-700s” and “-800s.” in its fleet. Considering that JAL and other Japanese airlines nowadays only operate the Next-Generation 737s as well, the era of 737 Classics in Japan came to an end. While I didn’t have a chance

Nagasaki Business Lounge Azalea Seating

Review: Business Lounge Azalea at Nagasaki Airport

With no ANA and JAL lounges, Business Lounge Azalea is the only domestic lounge option available at Nagasaki airport. I visited it a couple of months ago before taking an Oriental Air Bridge flight to Goto-Fukue. In the review below, I’ll show you what the it was like.

Oriental Air Bridge: A Vital Link to Nagasaki’s Outlying Islands

While airlines like ANA and JAL represent Japan around the world, there are also much smaller Japanese airlines that, among other things, focus on connecting the country’s main islands with its smaller outlying islands. With Nagasaki Prefecture being home to 51 of the more than 300 inhabited ones, it is no surprise that an airline
