Welcome to JarvisMarcos.com, a thorough and extensive database of my travel reviews.

I fly over 100,000 miles per year in First and Business class cabins and review every new product that I try. Similarly, I review almost every luxury hotel and airport lounge that I set foot in

I book the majority of my travel using sales, promotions and a variety of other tricks - often leveraging the power of hotel points and airline miles. If I use a special technique of any kind to book a travel experience, I'll mention it in the review.

This means that hopefully you'll have all the tools you need to book your own amazing trips too!

REVIEW – Air Canada : Business Class – Vancouver to London LHR (B789)

The overall experience was absolutely one of the best that I've ever had in business class. I had no real expectations going into this and came away with a real fondness for AC. If this is the service standard that they are able to consistently deliver, they have to be one of the best airlines in North America.

REVIEW – Plaza Premium Lounge, Vancouver (YVR – International Terminal)

 This lounge is a clear improvement over the AC Maple Leaf lounge; it is far more elegantly furnished, has better food options and better coffee. Still, in an international context this is by no means a competitive facility. This is not a scratch on the facilities of HKG, TPE and NRT that many of this lounge's guests will be accustomed to.

REVIEW – Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge, Vancouver (YVR)

Visiting this lounge made me feel dirty. I got in, took some pictures and left. The airport terminal is immeasurably more pleasant than this deplorable den of despair.

REVIEW – Air Canada : Business Class – Los Angeles to Vancouver (A320)

The seat was large and comfortable and featured both power and entertainment. The crew were polite, friendly and efficient (if a little lacking in oenoligical knowledge). The food was plentiful, healthy and delicious with a decent selection of drinks to accompany it.   If BA Club Europe was anything like this I wouldn't hesitate to pay the premium every time I fly!

REVIEW – Cathay Pacific : Business Class – Singapore to Hong Kong (A330-Regional Config)

The seats are not the best and I feel that CX has learnt nothing from the debacle with its similar shell design in economy. For a market leading airline, I would expect a lie flat product or at least more padding and a real, deep recline for flights over 3 hours.

REVIEW – British Airways : Club World Business Class – London Heathrow to Singapore (A380)

Having luxuriated in the sheer opulence of the Singapore Airlines cabin on this route, I would gladly pay 2k+ to fly to Singapore with them. The memory of each flight with SQ is a delight that lasts a lifetime. Would I pay £2k to fly BA? No chance.

REVIEW – American Airlines : Business Class – New York JFK to London Heathrow (B77W)

After a single night in Jersey city and two awesome days spent hanging out with my friends, it was time to head back to JFK, as […]

Three places in NJ and NY (October 2015)

On this weekend trip I stayed with friends in Jersey City. JC is a place that still gets a bad rep from New Yorkers, despite being […]

REVIEW – British Airways : Club World (Business Class) – London Heathrow to Newark (B772)

The cabin decor is drab, bland and uninspired. The only thing about the experience that feels premium are the cheese biscuits and the Fever Tree tonic. There is close to zero storage space around the seat. Aisle seats are completely exposed, no more private than economy. Middle seats can lead to bizarre and uncomfortable sharing scenarios, whilst window seats require stepping over other passengers in order to escape.
