REVIEW – American Airlines : Business Class – New York JFK to London Heathrow (B77W)
December 26, 2016
TRIP REPORT – Bali III : Return of the Bali
January 8, 2017

Looking back on 2016, looking forward to 2017

2016 was a tempestuous year for global politics but an amazing year of travel for me!
As well as putting together this website I also travelled more than ever 😀

This is the first time that I’ve ever managed to set foot in 6 continents in a single year.

My flight summary

I don’t always fly in F, despite what people might think
However, I am glad to see that my average number of miles flown decreases along with the class of service.

My longest flight QR F : SYD-DOH
My shortest flight Trans Maldivian (Y) : MLE-Conrad Rangali

Best flight EY F : Both sectors in apartments were absolutely outstanding, a remarkable aviation experience.

Worst flight BA Y : a lot of delays – more flights delayed than on time for me this year with BA short haul.

Carriers flown

New Countries

Maldives, Morocco, Poland, Romania, Brazil

As 2017 marches on, a daunting task lies ahead. I will be writing up trip reports for the vast number of new planes and products which I tried out in 2016, whilst keeping on top of even more travel in 2017.

Some 2016 highlights which I will be writing about:

Etihad Apartments
Swiss 777 Business
Cathay 747 Business
Qatar A380 First and Business
Qatar B787 Business
BA A380 First

Qatar Al Safwa Lounge DOH
Qantas F Lounge SYD
Swiss *Gold lounge ZRH E Gates

I hope that you’ll enjoy reading along and I wish you all safe and exciting travels in 2017!

    Awesome year. 2016 was the year I traveled the most too. Already got a jump on the qualifying year flying home from DOH on the 1st, trying to stay a step ahead of AA and their EQDs. First actual trip of the year will be to LHR and KEF in a couple weeks. Safe travels out there.
