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 – JAL : Business Class – Jakarta to Tokyo Narita (October 2015)

JL J was a mixed bag. I found the service to be competent but not particularly friendly. I also really didn't like how bare bones everything seemed for a flight which is similar in distance to LHR-JFK. No airline would cross the Atlantic without providing a proper amenity kit and a real dinner in J, so I was very disappointed to see JL scraping through with the bare minimum. I would actively avoid flying JL on a similar route in the future.

REVIEW – Garuda Indonesia : Business Class – Bali to Jakarta (B77W)

I really enjoyed my GA J flight, the catering crew and seat were all top notch. I was definitely left wanting more and would not hesitate at all to try their long haul J service on the Sogerama seats.
