My Next Trip: Singapore The Very Long Way!

Since I started using miles and points for flights there has always been several airlines/products I have wanted to try, so I’ve constructed a trip that will allow me to finally review them.

  1. Lufthansa First Class

Since I first read about what Lufthansa first class offered I was very interested in trying it. The separate first class terminal and being driven to the plane is very appealing. The dinning also looks brilliant both in the lounge and onboard, also those rubber ducks are brilliant ;). Jokes aside I am very excited to be finally trying this product and being able to review it

Another reason for trying Lufthansa is to finally fly on a 747-8. I have flown the -400 birds many times now but am very excited to try the aircraft.

The route I will be taking is FRA-LAX.

2.   Cathay Pacific First Class 

I’ve done Cathay business class before which I am yet to review and quite enjoyed it but slept just about the whole flight. I am not sure what makes me want to try it so bad but I really am interested in trying it. I have heard some great things about the product.

The route I will be taking is LAX-HKG. So I will be able to access the Qantas first class lounge in Los Angeles which is very nice.

The whole trip is quite last-minute due to Cathay Pacific, Etihad and Lufthansa opening first reward seats quite late.

The routing is as follows:

  • SYD-BKK (Thai First)
  • BKK-AUH (Etihad First)
  • AUH-LHR( Etihad First)
  • LHR-FRA (Lufthansa Business)
  • FRA-LAX (Lufthansa First)
  • LAX-HKG (Cathay First)
  • HKG-SIN (Cathay Business)
  • SIN-SYD (Singapore Business)

There will also be a number of lounges I will be able to review.

  • Singapore Airline Lounge Sydney
  • Thai Royal First Lounge Bangkok
  • Lufthansa First Class Terminal Frankfurt
  • Qantas First Class Lounge Los Angeles
  • SilverKris Business Class Lounge Singapore

As I have already reviewed the Etihad first class lounge in Abu Dhabi and the Pier and Wing in Hong Kong I won’t be reviewing them again.

All of the legs will be a mixture of Alaskan miles, Avianca Lifemiles, AAdvantage miles and American Express membership rewards transferred to Etihad Guest and Krisflyer.

This will be one crazy, exciting and tiring trip, Am I crazy or is this normal?
