Etihad A380 First Apartment – Flight EY 460 Abu Dhabi-AUH to Melbourne-MEL – Part 1

by jeffrey @ Weekend Blitz

After spending a very enjoyable and luxurious 3+ hours in the Etihad Airways Flagship First Class Lounge – Abu Dhabi-AUH, it was time for the main event: The Etihad First Apartment!

BOOKING

We booked this bucket list flight using American Airlines AAdvantage miles for a total of 60,000 miles; this was before a major AAdvantage devaluation and now the flight would cost you 100,000 miles for the one-way route from the “Middle East” region to the “South Pacific” region. Furthermore, since we both have the Barclay AA credit card, we got a 10% rebate, driving the total price down to 54,000 miles + ~$79 in taxes each for the ~$6,300+ flight. We got even more value than that though since we arranged a 23 hours stopover in Melbourne-MEL before continuing on to Townsville, Australia-TSV in Qantas Business Class.

CHECK-IN

We were able to take advantage of the free Etihad Chauffeur Service from the Park Hyatt Dubai to Abu Dhabi International Airport for our Etihad flight.

Our (free!) chauffeur service

The trip took about 1.5 hours total.

The airport has a dedicated First & Business class check-in area.

And so the experience begins!

First Class check-in desks

We left the lounge and made the (extremely) long trek to Gate 61 in Terminal 3, literally the furthest away from the Lounge.

As we approached the gate area, they were doing a secondary document check:

BOARDING

Knowing it would be dark at the time of boarding, we snuck a few pictures before hopping in the lounge:

Etihad A6-APG sitting at the gate

We made our way down (ok, more so really up since we were on top deck) of the long jet bridge to board the flight.

We took a left after boarding to find the First Class cabin:

While I didn’t necessarily need to be shown to my seat since I’d studied it online numerous times and been counting down the days to this moment, a flight attendant escorted us anyway. She showed us to our seats, 3K and 4K:

Of the 9 First Class seats (well, 10 if you include The Residence), there were just 2 other passengers aboard, so 4 of us total.



SEAT

The seat was, well, let me just type a direct quote from McCown as we got settled it: “OMG. There was what I expected and anticipated from reading many, many reviews and then there’s the real thing. And let me just say, OMG.”

The sheer size and space and privacy are unprecedented and staggering.

The big, leather seat is luxurious and makes you feel like you’re visiting your grandfather instead of couped up on a plane.

The couch is perfect for having company over in your apartment. And then switched into a bed when you’re ready to sleep.

I mean, it’s realistically closer to a throne than a seat:

The empty neighboring suite

View from seat 4K

View of IFE and sofa (that converts to a bed)

The actual seat featured a few tactile buttons as well as a touchscreen for a variety of controls.

It was all really a sensory overload. The tiny compartments, sliding doors and gadgets and gizmos [...]

Blitz Deal: ~$614 RT Raleigh, Baltimore, Boston or Chicago to Beijing-PEK in New Delta A350 Premium Select

by jeffrey @ Weekend Blitz

This fare first popped up about 2 weeks ago, but it’s still alive so I thought others might find it useful!

The Deal Active departure airports: Raleigh-RDU, Baltimore-BWI, Boston-BOS, Chicago-ORD, Chicago-MDW Destination: Beijing, China-PEK Active dates: Depends on the departure city but around January 2018 to April 2018. Price range: $614-696 depending on the dates and the departure city. You can pretty easily include a stopover at Detroit-DTW on either the outbound or return trip–but no idea why you would want to do that. This deal is for the NEW Delta Premium Select cabin on their brand new A350s. The new cabin is a proper premium economy cabin, similar to what the European or Asian carriers have been offering for years. According to Delta, the seats feature 75% more recline and 8″ more legroom than traditional economy.

How to Get It Head to Google.com/flights Enter departure airport as “RDU,BWI,BOS,MDW,ORD” (this will show you all of the options from the area) and arrival airport as “PEK“ Select “Premium Economy” as the class of service Everything for this deal will route through Detroit-DTW since that is the only route that Delta is currently flying it’s new A350 to Beijing-PEK, so if you want to limit your search to just 1-stop itineraries, you can click to limit the connection airport to only DTW. If you leave this blank or set to “Any connection”, you see all of the multi-stop itineraries that will most likely also go through Atlanta-ATL, Cincinnati-CVG, New York-JFK, etc. View the calendar to see the lowest fares available: Select your preferred flight times. A few things to watch out for here: Make sure your long-haul routes are from Detroit-DTW to Beijing-PEK and double check that the aircraft is an A350 in Premium Economy. The great news with Delta’s new service is that if you book Premium Select for your international routes, the domestic segments book into First Class. Double check that this is the case. At this stage, you can click to book directly with Delta or, if you search the route directly on the Delta website, you can view a few more options.

Don’t forget:

If you book with Delta, you can book today and will have 24 hours for a free cancellation. Delta’s Premium Select earns a 50% MQM bonus, so this trip would net 21,000+ MQMs, meaning you’ve nearly earned Silver Medallion with one trip. BOTTOM LINE:

This is a pretty awesome deal to try out Delta’s new Premium Select cabin for just about $100 more than economy. Redeeming miles for the same cabin would cost ~128,000 SkyMiles so this fare is quite a bargain. As an added bonus, the domestic segments book into Delta First and the MQM bonus will yield 20k+ MQMs for elite status qualification.

Singapore City Tour during a 10-Hour Layover

by mccown @ Weekend Blitz

After flying in on Singapore Airlines from Jakarta (Singapore Airlines B777-200 First Class Jakarta-CGK to Singapore-SIN (SQ 953)), we were faced with a 10-hour layover in Singapore and, because we’ve never visited the city before, we took advantage of the layover and popped out of the airport (as impressive as it was) to see as much as we could in the short time.

Because Singapore is a hub, they’ve made sightseeing during a layover very easy! The airport offers free two-hour tours but, since we had more time than that, we opted to DIY and head out on the hop-on, hop-off bus. This gave us the freedom to do things on our own time and see more than the 2-hour free tour, plus Singapore Airlines/Silk Air boarding pass holders receive a 50% discount on bus tickets! We purchased adult tickets for just $19.50 SGD (roughly $14 USD) each once we hopped on a bus.

We knew that our luggage was checked through to our next destination, so we only had our carry-ons. We opted to store most of what we were carrying so we’d have less things to lug around with us all day and found the baggage storage at the airport to be more than adequate. Plus, there’s a storage area in all three terminals, so it’s very convenient no matter where you’re flying in/out (and pretty cheap for just carry-ons since they charge by weight).

Once we were free of everything but the day’s essentials, we headed through customs and right to the metro stop inside the airport (the metro leaves from Terminals 2 and 3).

It takes about an hour to get into the city center from the airport, so be sure to factor traveling time in your layover plan. We got off the metro at City Hall and walked to the nearby bus stop: aptly named City Hall, too.

Once on the Red Line bus, we decided to stay aboard until we found stops that we wanted to explore more, knowing that we’d get to see more stops if we stayed on the bus longer. Here are the stops where we got off for a bit and explored on foot:

Chinatown: having never been to China, Singapore’s Chinatown was as close as we’d get for a while, we figured. It was pretty similar to other Chinatowns we’ve seen, but still very cool to see and different from the rest of the city.

Old Customs House (near the Raffles Hotel): The famous Singapore Sling cocktail was originally concocted at the Raffles Hotel. We headed to the Long Bar Steakhouse in the luxury hotel to try it from the original place. It’ll cost ya, though… just one drink costs close to $30 (!!) but it does come with all-you-can-eat peanuts.  🙂

Note: The Long Bar Steakhouse is closed for renovations with plans to re-open in mid-2018, but you can still try the Singapore Sling at the nearby Bar & Billiard Room.

The grounds of the Raffles Hotel make you feel like you’re in a time machine to the colonial era since it [...]

Footprints in Fuji

by B & T @ Footprints around the world

After over four months of travel, we were excited to be joined by B’s siblings, M & R for our jaunt to Mount Fuji. They had arrived a couple of days earlier in Tokyo and were eager to explore the region around Fuji. At 3,776 m high, Fuji is Japan’s highest mountain, and a most-wanted pilgrimage of several tourists. It is an active volcano, that last erupted in 1707. On a clear day, it can be seen from as far away as Tokyo. Highlights of Fuji Though climbing Mount Fuji

Should you Attend a Travel Blog Conference?

by Jenia Ustinova @ House to Laos

So, travel blogger conference. I made the decision to go to TBEX North America 2015 kind of on a whim, a month before the event. I spent the rest of the 4 weeks prior to the conference questioning, and even regretting, my snap decision making abilities. First of all, I am not a huge networker and we are also not certain how far down the ‘professional’ path we want to take this blog. In general, I find the whole concept of selling our ‘stats and message’ to anyone who would listen unnerving. Then, there’s the whole money matter – is it really the best way to spend our disposable income, given the first point? In the end I went – but only because of sunk costs. So, with those negative caveats in mind, here’s a rundown of my impressions from the first ever travel blogger conference that I attended. TBEX is a fantastic value The fact that TBEX is a fantastic value – in purely monetary terms – was my least expected conclusion. But it’s true. The $150 admission ticket gets you one pre-TBEX tour to area attractions (plus the option to just show up and take an unclaimed spot on […]

DC like a local: Cherry Blossoms

by Sergey Guryakov @ House to Laos

Last week we published our guide to the Best Cherry Blossom experience in Washington DC in the most iconic spot – the Tidal Basin. And it’s true, if you only have time/patience for one place, you’ve got to hit up Thomas Jefferson Memorial loop (exact location to see the memorial at sunrise). But! As great as that experience will be, it will be something that you will share with lots and lots of other tourists, locals, photographers, and brides-to-be. If, like us, you like to explore a bit more hidden places, away from the big crowds – then this guide is for you. Below are the best cherry blossoms spots in Washington DC – enjoyed mostly by locals, and a few tourists-in-the-know. Hains Point This is cheating a bit, as Hains Point is part of the Tidal Basin circuit. It’s a longish walk from one to another (30 minutes to get there from FDR memorial – your suggested location on the Tidal Basin, and then another 30 minutes or so to actually stroll the area), far enough that only about 10 percent of the Tidal Basin crowd ever makes it to Hains Point. Annual Cherry Blossom 10 Mile Run, Hains Point, Washington DC.  Here are several […]

Castle Hopping in Albania

by Jenia Ustinova @ House to Laos

Is it surprising that Albania is a great destination for castle hopping? Like, really great. Albania is not a large country, and there are by no means countless historic fortresses and edifices — which means that castle sightseeing is not overwhelming, there’s no FOMO, or castle fatigue. Another huge plus – you don’t have to have a PhD in architecture or history to discern the variations of the Albanian castles — set centuries apart, these sites represent little known, but endlessly fascinating history of a country whose long road to nation state is interwoven with the storied histories of the Greek, Roman, and Ottoman empires. We knew nothing about Albania or its history before we showed up in the capital city of Tirana ready for our grand tour organized by Albania friends. Our poor knowledge of the country was not entirely our fault — Albania spent the better part of 20th century completely isolated from the rest of the world by the design of its dictator in charge, Enver Hoxha. No one in Albania knew what was happening in the world, and conversely, the world knew very little about Albania, either past or present. Albania’s communist era dictator, Enver Hoxha had his name carved into the […]
