West Jet, Premium Economy

I was already a fan of the Dreamliner, with its airy feel and mood lighting, and the Westjet team has done much with the interior design to make it their own. Service was exemplary too – friendly and engaged throughout.

Latam, Business Class

It was definitely up there with the best business cabins I've experienced – and the upgraded version should be even better.

American Airlines, Business Class

Crew were courteous and the smart, comfortable seat rewarded me with possibly the best night's sleep I've had onboard. My only moan was the finnicky wifi.


A good, comfortable economy class product and a slick experience on the ground too.

Qantas, Economy class

The thought of this long flight was very much worse than the reality. The Dreamliner cabin environment really does seem to support wellbeing in the air. The atmosphere remained relatively fresh throughout, there was very little operational noise or distraction and the lighting helped create a pleasant environment throughout.

British Airways, First Class

This was a daytime flight so lights weren’t dimmed and no mattress liner was added but the seat was roomy and I felt nicely cocooned by the wrap-around walls. The dining was excellent and the service was attentive.

British Airways, World Traveller Plus

The premium economy seat was comfortable and my meal was good but the stand out feature was the staff. Great service from a crew that were upbeat and full of Christmas spirit.

Royal Brunei Airlines, Business Class

This was the final leg of my journey with the airline and I felt like a VIP throughout the journey. The spacious set up of the business class cabin ensures you arrive as relaxed and as refreshed as possible.

American Airlines, Premium Economy

The aircraft felt new and the Premium Economy seat was definitely comfortable and well-thought through. The meal quality was excellent and the amenities supplied with the seat were good quality and useful, especially the lumbar pillow. The staff were efficient if a little brusque in their service but overall the journey was a good experience.

Aer Lingus, Business Class

The real boon of flying to the US via Dublin is clearing US customs and immigration in Dublin, meaning you land as a domestic passenger and avoid the same but often interminably long procedures on arrival in the US. So if you need to take connecting flights from your local airport to reach your US destination then look no further than this. Great service and friendly crew too.
