It’s time to embark upon another journey that will take me to Helsinki, Paris, and Toronto. Why? To fly the Finnair A330, Air France A350, and Air Canada 787 of course!
I’m doing my best to diversify my reviews on Live and Let’s Fly in 2020. I want to provide a premium cabin review from every oneworld, SkyTeam, and Star Alliance carrier. I’m well on my way toward that goal, but I’ve still got a ways to go…and precious little time to do it in. I’ve got a brief “hall pass” but hate to leave my family and other business behind for very long.
This trip came about months ago when I took advantage of a super deal with Flying Blue and booked a “Special Edition” Promo Award on the new Air France A350-900 for only 32,000 miles in business class. I love Air France and I love the A350. Thankfully, I found a connecting flight from Toronto to Los Angeles on an Air Canada 787-9 using miles. It’s not the best use of miles, but the timing worked perfectly and it will give me five hours to experience Air Canada’s latest premium product.
I’ll leave the outbound a mystery for now, but had the chance to book an A350 or A330 on Finnair and took the A330 because I’ve already provided a detailed Finnair A350 review in business class.
I realize I’m also behind; I owe you full reviews on TAP Air Portugal and Turkish Airlines, reviews that will be published in the days ahead. I’ve also amassed a huge backlog of lounge reviews that I need to slog through and get posted. Those are a challenge because they’re extremely time consuming and not all that popular, but each lounge reviews is like adding a book to a library. Over time, the whole is more valuable than the sum of the parts…
As usual, I’ll provide updates along the way in the form of first impressions then follow with more detailed reviews…hopefully not too much later.
Off I go again…
