Avianca Boeing 787 Business Class to Bogota

Avianca 86
Boeing 787 - Business Class 
Sao Paulo (GRU) - Bogota (BOG)

I was able to have a peek at the crew rest area right behind the cockpit...

Even if the plane is relatively new, signs of bad or shoddy maintenance were evident...

This flight operated as a Breakfeast flight and menus were distributed shortly after takeoff.

Friattata with beans and sausage was the main course choice I picked, served with a horrible crossiant and a fruit plate.

Airport Lounge Europe Munich review

Usually, when flying thru Munich one would stop at one of the various Lufthansa lounges , which in the case of the Senator lounges (accessible via Star Gold cards) one can find a decent meal selection and some good liquor as well as other beverages. This time I was flying out of Terminal 1 on Vueling, so I used my PriorityPass card to access the "Airport Lounge Europa" which serves as one of the lounge in the Schengen area of the terminal.

The lounge was surprising empty, which allowed us to have some space to spread out and drop our stuff.

The usual selection of free newspapers and free Wi-Fi were available and I picked up a copy the Financial Times.

Food options consisted of a cold buffet with various options.

HOT: UK to New Zealand for £1,369 in Business with Qatar

Qatar Airways is having an interesting sale ex-Manchester...

Trying random dates towards the end of October and November, economy flights are in £1000-1200 range, but for almost the same price you can fly with Qatar which has an excellent on-bard service in Business Class. The flight times are really good and the connections are short in Doha. You can a longer layover if you wish to explore the city by playing with the departure date.

This flight would give you 30996 RDMs, 37194 EQMs and 6199 EQDs as a non-Elite member allowing you to obtain AA Gold in one flight or
 AA Platinum if you do a Platinum Challenge.  (Ask us how to maximize your experience by reaching out to one of our team members!)

I personally love the Qatar Boeing 787 and flew one of the first flights Intra-Gulf when it was launched. I highly recommend avoiding the last row of two seats as there is significant light and foot traffic in that area.

The Boeing 777 has the non-direct aisle access seats, but some flyers prefer it as the seat converts into a longer bed in flat mode.
