Nico traveled to Thailand in July 2022. He kindly shares his experience on board and in the lounge.
Air Antwerp has ceased all activities. The small airliner from Antwerp, actually a joint venture between CityJet of Ireland and KLM of the Netherlands, operated flights between Antwerp International Airport (ANR) in Deurne and London City Airport (LCY).
After we arrived in Frankfurt on a ‘five star’ short haul business class, it was time to check out the Lufthansa Business Class Lounge. I’ve put ‘five stars’ between brackets, because Lufthansa is officially a five star airline according to rating website Skytrax. Our flight from Brussels to Frankfurt was not very five star, so…
Air Canada has five lounges outside Canada: two in New York, one in London, Paris and Frankfurt. Although I wasn’t flying on Air Canada, I was really curious to try the Maple Leaf Lounge when I was in Frankfurt.

In times of climate awareness there is a lot of discussion about these kind of short haul flights. But as a born and raised ‘Antwerpeneer‘ I…
Austrian Airlines was the only Lufthansa Group airline I hadn’t tried yet. So I was really excited for this flight. Austrian Airlines is one of the few airlines that still offers complimentary service on board, which is always nice.
Austrian Airlines is part of Lufthansa Group‘s so called ‘network airlines’. So unlike Eurowings and Brussels Airlines, they present themselves as a more premium brand. Their baseline is ‘The Charming Way To Fly’. So: how do they live up to that reputation?
Thalys, the high speed train company, offers a lounge in a selected number of train stations. Gaining access to one of their lounges is actually fairly easy. I got to check out the lounge at Brussels South/Midi station.
