Last year Timothy and I decided to have a short weekend trip to the sun during the Winter and we decided to head for Singapore, a city that was on Timothy’s to visit list. Since we would only be there for a weekend we decided to splash out and fly business class to fight the effects of jet lag and get the most out of our days there.
Last year my friend Michel and I decided we wanted to have a weekend soaking up some early Spring sun to get rid of our winter blues. Since I never had been to Malta before, and Timothy was so lyrical about his experience there, we decided to jet off to the small island in the Mediterranean Sea. Since Michel had a gold status with Star Alliance we decided to fly on Lufthansa so we could make use of all the benefits this would provide us.
Happy New Year! To celebrate 2018 and our profound love of travel we decided to start a blog: Trip By Trip.
Coming home from Taiwan, I flew with Turkish Airlines from Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport (TPE) to Istanbul Atatürk Airport on TK25 and then on TK1671 to Cologne Bonn Airport (CGN). So, how was it?
In 2015 I got the chance to explore LAN (since then merged with TAM and renamed LATAM Airlines) Business Class on their 5th freedom flight from Frankfurt to Madrid. The plane flies the route Frankfurt to Santiago de Chile with a stopover in Madrid and to fill the plane on the Frankfurt to Madrid segment, LATAM often has some bargains on sale. For me this was the ideal opportunity to try out a long-haul Business Class product with lie-flat seat and a brand new Boeing 787 Dreamliner so I naturally I jumped on the chance and jetted off for a weekend to Madrid.
