Welcome to SWISS’ stunning, new business and first class seats on A340s

swiss' new business class

Love SWISS? Then you’ll love it even more now that the airline has upgraded its business and first class cabins (even economy) on the Airbus A340s. Although most of the A340s have been replaced by new Boeing 777-300ER jets, the airline intends to keep at least five of the A340s for long-range international destinations.

In 2018, all five will be upgraded to match SWISS’ luxurious style, similar to that of the Boeing 777-300ER, which offers more privacy.


Duty free while you fly: why is it still available?

duty free on airplane

As you sit comfortably (or uncomfortably) in your seat, do you ever pick up that duty free catalog stuck in the seat pocket in front of you? Most probably don’t because let’s face it, when was the last time you bought duty free while flying? It’s probably been years, maybe even decades.

By the time that trolly rolls through to the end of the isle, the chance of a passenger buying at least one item is zilch. So why do airlines still offer duty free on board when there are dozens of duty free shops at airports?


What may seem ok to you, is insulting to others in different countries

travel advice

We love traveling—the way it allows us to break away from the usual and experience a new culture is always exciting. But sometimes we forget to leave our custom ways behind as we step into a different country. What I mean is, what may seem ok to you to do at home (smiling at strangers, eating with your left hand, giving an OK symbol), is actually insulting to other cultures.

So before you head on to your next trip to Asia, Europe or South America, here’s some travel advice to keep others from thinking the worst of you.


Introducing AirCruise: a luxury cruise line above the clouds

A luxury cruise above the clouds? Yes, it’s real. Crystal Cruises is the first cruise line that launched its own airline. It’s a plane like no other, and designed for those who want an all-around, world’s best first class experience (butlers and concierge staff included, of course).

The company will debut the first AirCruise in 2017 on a Boeing 777, which will seat 84 passengers. It will then release another AirCruise on a Boeing 787, which will only seat 52 guests.

Those who are willing to fork up $50,000 to $100,000 USD per person can enjoy 14-day, 21-day and 28-day curated itineraries to locations around the world. The airline will stop at around 10 destinations for a duration of 3 days at each location, with the “best hotels and resorts, excursions and world-class dining inspired by local cultures, tastes and traditions”. Don’t worry, at least the flights are non-stop.

Flying? Here are foods you should avoid eating on the plane

foods to avoid while flying

Are you one of those people that like to grab a meal in the airport terminal right before your flight? From burgers, chicken wings, and smoothies to a good ole’ cup of joe to keep you awake for the next few hours—the choices are endless. But a lot of these edible options are not your stomachs best friend, especially when you’re about to fly.

Many foods, in fact, will cause your tummy feel bloated and gassy, making your whole trip very uncomfortable (and even harder for you to fall asleep). So to make your long flight a bit more enjoyable, here are a few foods and drinks to avoid. Your digestive system will thank you ;).
