United Airlines First Class B737 Houston to Seattle

United Airlines 1603 Houston (IAH) – Seattle (SEA) Boeing 737-900 15 November 2014 I left the KLM lounge around ten minutes before scheduled departure time and it took me fifteen minutes to walk from gate D8 to gate C43. Upon arriving, we were informed there is an issue with one of the components inside of the airplane and that there was going to be a slight delay. The original departure time was 17:42 and it kept being pushed back by 30 minutes. Around 18:20 we were informed there is a ga… read more

KLM Crown Lounge Houston

Re-clearing security was a pain since Pre-Check wasn’t open and there was a massive queue, and not only that – one lane was open and they were using the full body scanners. I of course opted out and it took literally fifteen minutes for a ‘male assist’ to come and give me the standardised massage. After all of that, I headed to the KLM Crown Lounge located near gate D8. I was going to go to my usual United Club, but since I was rather hungry, I decided to explore a differ… read more

United Airlines Business Class B737 Cancun to Houston

United Airlines 1059 Cancun (CUN) – Houston (IAH) Boeing 737-900 15 November 2014 After spending roughly an hour in the Mera Business Lounge, it was time to leave beautiful Mexico. The departure gate was C20, which is located fairly close to the lounge. Boarding began around five minutes ahead of scheduled boarding time and there were no gate lice for once! The flight was operated by one of United’s Sky Interior B737 aircraft without IFE. Almost immediately after sitting down, I was … read more

Mera Business Lounge Cancun (Terminal 3)

I’ve been in Playa del Carmen the past week on holiday and I stayed at an amazing resort – Sandos Caracol, everything was All Inclusive and each night cost me just under $90 USD. Today I am in transit returning from Cancun to Seattle and I’m publishing some of the trip report ‘live’. I arrived at Cancun airport well ahead of schedule since I ordered a shuttle from my hotel and it picked me up at 07:20 and we made it to the airport at 08:00 and the flight left at 11:… read more

United Airlines raises PQD requirement

As much as I love flying with United Airlines, over the past year or so, their frequent flyer programme has descended dramatically. With a combination of massively devaluating their award chart for premium cabin travel, imposing a revenue requirement, and also if that wasn’t enough, changing MileagePlus to be a revenue-based programme. I was going to switch from Miles&More to MileagePlus last year. So. freaking. glad. I. didn’t. Long story short, United is basically copying every… read more

United Airlines Business Class B737 Houston to Cancun

United Airlines 1014 Houston (IAH) – Cancun (CUN) Boeing 737-900 08 November 2014 I was connecting from Los Angeles, however since I was so tired, I slept for most of the flight and that’s the reason I won’t write the review for it. After arriving in Houston, I proceeded to the United Club in Terminal E to eat breakfast and I was actually surprised that they had some nice breakfast options like bread and cereal, something I wasn’t expecting. The Terminal E club is one of … read more

Hello from sunny Playa del Carmen! I’m currently here on holiday through next week and I am enjoying every minute of it, the water is super warm, the temperature is right and the food is delicious. So far I’ve spent the first day doing absolutely nothing and just on the beach relaxing and swimming. Since I just recently re-launched Travelling the World, I decided to give away a free Gogo pass which is valid for the duration of the flight.
