Planes & Lounges | Life – Travel

Am I an aviation geek? I doubt so. I don’t follow up or research on the aviation sector like the stereotypical avgeek. However, I know more about the airline industry than the average folks, because I like and enjoy talking about and experiencing services in this area!

I think getting a bohemoth of an airplane off the ground is an engineering marvel. The fine example of Changi Airport, which smashed the stereotype of an airport by being a lifestyle destination rather than a sterile place to catch planes, is also awe inspiring. This is why I always hang out at the airport before I started working, and gave excuses for myself to travel around when I started making money 😛

Here are the trip reports of the planes I took and the airports and lounges I visited, so that when the time comes when I’m no longer able to travel around, I can still reminisce my footsteps around the world.

Cathay Pacific Premium Economy – Is It Worth Upgrading From Economy?

Stepping into the Premium Economy class cabin, it felt like deja-vu, as though I accidentally bought seats to the regional Business Class. But did I?
