American Airlines has made a lot of improvements to their Admiral’s Club lounges over the last year. They are offering a wider variety of snacks, and my personal favorite is the guacamole available every afternoon. Then again, two kinds of free soup or the free fancy coffee machine are also nice. Of all the improvements they have made, however, one is particularly important to me. In 2017, AA re-opened the long-dormant IAH Admiral’s Club in Terminal A. They did a great job of remodeling, and this is a fantastic addition for those of us flying American out of Houston’s George Bush airport. Continue reading “IAH Admiral’s Club in Terminal A”

First class meal options on American Airlines from Dallas to Las Vegas

First class meal option on American Airlines from Dallas to Las Vegas. One of the real advantages American offers is the ability to pre-order your meals up to 30 days in advance.

One of the real advantages American Airlines offers is the ability to pre-order your meals if you are travelling in first class. Anywhere from 30 days in advance until 24 hours before flight departure, you can select the meal you would like. That means you know you will get your first choice, and quite often some of the meal choices are only available if you pre-order. For example, when travelling to Japan one has to pre-order the Japanese meal. Today, I am going to tell you what options American has available for our flight from Dallas (DFW) to Las Vegas (LAS) next month. It looks fantastic, and it should be a great way to start the trip. I will, of course, provide a better review after we have taken the trip. Continue reading “First class meal options on American Airlines from Dallas to Las Vegas”

Video review of a standard guest room at the Hilton Narita

Hey folks. For those of you who have been reading for a while, I have traditionally written my posts and linked to Youtube for any video content I provided. I still like the format of keeping the video and text/photo reviews distinct. However, I want to start hosting the video content directly on this site. As a result, over the next few weeks I am going to publish videos for which I have already provided the text information. I will provide a link to the original note, as well. When I have cleared the backlog, I will start publishing the video and text reviews on the same day. To start, enjoy my walk through of a standard guest room at the Narita Hilton.

Narita Admiral’s Club

Narita Admiral’s Club

If you are in Narita Terminal 2, as a general rule if you have access to the lounge of a One World member airline you will have access to several lounges. There are exceptions, of course, but as a general rule if you have a premium class ticket or elite status in a member airline you can go where you would like. My favorite in the area are the first class and business class lounges from JAL. Those lounges both have great food and plenty of space. However, if what you need is a quiet place away from the crowds and perhaps some help with an American Airlines flight, the Admiral’s Club in Narita Terminal 2 presents a solid option.
