    Air France/Delta Review

    I’ve always had an up and down relationship with Air France. They have reasonable prices and their flight times usually work for me really well, but there are many issues with them otherwise. I just flew from Boston to Prague with Air France and the flight was operated by Delta. I always consider that the worst case scenario, because it usually means old planes, ok food, and ok in-flight entertainment. And, sadly enough,  they did not fail to meet my expectations this time either. Pre-Flight The pre-flight procedures go pretty well with Air France. You get an email that reminds to you to check in, which is very useful. However,…

    5 things I never leave at home

    I am usually the person who has everything in their purse – need contact solution? check. Nailpolish? Check. Tissues? Pens of various colors? Extra 50 hair ties? Check, check and check. I’m the person who goes away for a weekend with a suitcase (bigger than those tiny carry-on little things), a giant purse and possibly a laptop bag (due to the large amount of things I have in my purse, the laptop sometimes doesn’t fit). And if I’m flying on a long haul flight, add a travel pillow and refillable water bottle. But what are the five items it all boils down to that I can’t live without? Important documents…

    Airports: the Best and the Worst

    I have been to many, many different airports while traveling. Some are very efficient and easy to get around, and some not so much. Here are some of the airports that I have traveled through and my experiences. JFK – Good Generally I have had good experiences at JFK. It is a huge airport, so sometimes getting from point A to point B can take time, but I think it is pretty efficiently laid out. Of course if it is the first airport you land at when you enter the US, you have to go through customs, before re-checking your luggage and continuing on your journey. They don’t have the…

    25 flights in One Year – How to survive constant travel

    In the year 2015 I flew 25 times. Most of these flights were from Boston to Prague, but there were a couple of awesome new destinations, like Turkey. Spending so much time on airplanes can be difficult, so here are some travel tips that might make traveling a little easier. What to bring Travel documents Neck pillow Lotion Chapstick Book/magazines Noise canceling headphones Extra battery/charger or both Adapter Fuzzy socks Warm sweater Toothbrush and toothpaste Pens – for immigrations forms Face cream Hairbrush for airplane hair   Pack all this in a carry-on bag that won’t break – purses with broken straps are not fun when you’ve got a 10 hour…

    Swiss Air: Thoughts and Experiences

    I fly between Boston and Prague quite a lot and personally I love taking Swiss Air for this trip. Part of the reason is that I am a loyal customer, so I collect as many miles as I can, but really I am very happy with their service. On top of their great service and actually decent food, layovers in Zurich are very calm and I never have to stress about making my second flight. My most recent flight with Swiss Air was at the end of November, so here’s my experience:     Pre-flight The pre-flight process with Swiss Air is very simple. You can check-in online 24 hours…
