Off to Japan on United Airlines!

United 79
Newark (EWR) to Tokyo (NRT)
Boeing 777 - Business Class

As part of an old Lifemiles trick, I booked myself a ticket from New York to Guam via Tokyo in order to try out United Airlines on their Boeing 777 product, which was formerly operated by United Airlines. This plane operates a 2-2-2 seating plan with a seat similar to that used on Air China's Boeing 777s.

The flight was almost empty so almost all passengers had a spare side seat.




Service started off with a small serving of nuts and my usual Jack and Coke Zero

Some lovely Pretzel bread...




I orderd the Japanese meal and it started with a Sushi appetizer.

















 A second meal snack/dish was offered prior to landing...

Welcome to Japan!

From New York to Berlin in Business Class on AirBerlin...


AirBerlin - AB 7259
New York (JFK) - Berlin (TXL)
Business Class - Airbus 330

AirBerlin operates various flights between from the USA to Berlin and Dusseldorf on a reconfigured Airbus 330 with a similar seat to Alitalia and Etihad.

Service started with some nuts and a glass of champagne. 

 Each seat has direct aisle access , which offers privacy but can be a bit of a tight fit.
  




 


The meal service started with a Turkey/Chicken appetizer , a super small salad and a choice of beverages.

I chose Beef as my main dish which was served in a semi-stew manner.

Small Cheese plate as a mini-dessert and then it was time to catch some sleep on the short TATL.

After a few hours of sleep, a quick continental breakfast was served...

Flying United Business Class across the Pond!


United 134
Newark (EWR) - Zurich (ZRH)
Boeing 767 - Business Class

As part of an old Lifemiles trick, I booked myself a ticket from New York to Istanbul via Zurich in order to try out United Airlines on their Boeing 767 product. This plane operates a 2-1-2 seating plan and I really enjoyed the single middle seats.





  

Meal service started with some Pretzel bread...

A sad looking Shrimp appetizer was served prior to the main dish...



Salad with a Vinaigrette sauce... 

I went for the shoe, I mean steak option and it was served with a cheap side dish of Rice... nothing to write home about...



Ice Cream time with a little twist... added some Baileys to my Ice Cream Sundae and it was a nice finish before catching some sleep time as we made our way across the pond...

Flying the Belgian Beer Express! (BRU-IAD)

Brussels Airlines 515
Brussels (BRU) - Washington D.C (IAD)
Airbus 330 - Business Class

Back in the day, it was possible to fly Business Class from US to Turkey (SAW) or vice-versa for a small amount of miles due to glitches in an airline program. I used this trick many times as a one-way to Europe or to return from Istanbul to the USA. This time I decided to try out Brussels Airlines and their Airbus 330 product in Business Class.

  


  
  
  









One of the best things about the airline is a full list of delicious Belgian beers, so I started with a Brugge Tripel beer.


An appetizer and salad followed shortly after...


This was followed by a delicious Veal and asparagus dish.



This was followed by a tasty cheese plate.



After a few hours watching series and a quick nap a small dish was served prior to landing in Washington, DC.
