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 – SWISS : Business Class – Zurich to Los Angeles LAX (B777)

There is a lot to like about SWISS business class but there are more than enough negatives to place this in the second tier of business class products behind the likes of Qatar, Etihad and Singapore Airlines. If the cabin was all throne seats and there was dine on demand, things would be very different. For the average passenger though, ending up crammed next to a stranger by the window, with access to a lower tier of lounge, any of the three aforementioned airlines would provide a better experience when flying on their flagship long haul routes.

REVIEW – SWISS Senator Lounge, ZRH – E Gates

The Senator Lounge at Zurich's E gates redefines what an airport lounge can be. If this was a First Class facility it would be amongst the best in the world. The fact that it is open to frequent flyers across the Star Alliance network, flying shorthaul economy, is absolutely stultifying.

REVIEW – SWISS : Business Class – Copenhagen to Zurich (A320)

SWISS shorthaul business is quite a bare bones affair. No jacket hanging, an economy seat, no centre table and no hot food. The service was very efficient and friendly but this was ultimately an economy experience in everything but name.

REVIEW – SAS Lounge, CPH T3

The design of this lounge is mostly great and I really like the dedicated travel centre and the coffee. The food selection is poor though and the area by the windows could definitely do with some privacy screens and tables to break the space up a bit. Overall a decent, well run lounge but nothing worth arriving at the airport early for.

REVIEW – Cathay Pacific : Business Class – Bali to Hong Kong (B772)

Unfortunately for the sector between Bali and Hong Kong we were stuck with a 772, flying the CX regional business class seats - a.k.a. "the asskillers"

REVIEW – Cathay Pacific : Business Class – Hong Kong to Bali (B747)

The crew were excited to be there, I was excited to be there and everything just fell into place. The service was spectacular throughout and it was great to have so many interesting conversations with a group of people who seemed to care so deeply about their jobs.

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.
