For our trip to the United Arab Emirates, we looked for a 5-star hotel out on the Gulf of Oman. Fairmont Fujairah Beach Resort, in the far north and a little remote but with lots of charm, we were hoping for an Arab dream. Here we spent almost a week, and let us go. How does everything around us like the hotel and, learn it in this post.
Germany in November: rain, fog and low temperatures. To escape these weather conditions, we were quite early in February for a sun destination. The decision was made quickly to the United Arab Emirates. So we flew on 03 November 2017 with a Boeing 747-400 in the Lufthansa Economy Class to Dubai.
Before flying to Dubai we visited the Lufthansa Senator Lounge B gates at Frankfurt Airport. This is in addition to the Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge is the only Star Alliance Gold Lounge in non-Schengen area of Terminal 1B. you learn more in the review.
Phew, the weather in November is always bad. Why, not even fly into the sun when it is wet and cold in Germany? In the UAE it is always sunny and warm, so this destination was our first long-haul destination with our young son. But is a Muslim country the right choice and how the child can withstand the heat? Different culture, different food, different people ... like relaxing and fond of children the UAE are, you experience the following article.
I've read a lot of good things about the Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge Frankfurt on various blogs. Some frequent flyers even believe that it is one of the best Star Alliance Gold Lounges at Frankfurt Airport. Before our flight to Dubai we had time to visit the lounge.
Thanks to an error-fares we flew in January 2017 with the Air Canada Business Class in the Boeing 777-300ER from Toronto to London. In contrast to the Business Class in the Airbus A330, the cabin in the Boeing 777-300ER is much more comfortable and meets the current standard. You can find out in our Trip Report whether the new Executive Pod seats were also convincing.
The Maple Leaf Lounge network of Air Canada includes over 20 lounges worldwide. The Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) is home to three of these, of which one national, one serving the cross-border (ie flights to the USA) and international gates. Access get passengers traveling in business class or first class Star Alliance Star Alliance Gold members and are holders of selected credit cards. We visited the Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge Toronto International in January 2017 before flying with Air Canada to London.
Unlike Lufthansa, for example, Air Canada uses a real Business Class for short- and medium-haul flights. In early 2017 we flew from Seattle to Toronto and had enough time to relax in Air Canada Business Class in the Embraer ERJ-190.
The lounges of United Airlines in the past were not known for their facilities and range of food and beverages. However, it has since the introduction of the new “Polaris” Business Class begun to renovate the United clubs and improve the services offered. The United Club at Seattle was one of the first lounges, which was already equipped with the new design. More about our stay in January 2017 you learn in the review.

Next to the airport Paine Field (Snohomish Country Airport), the widebody Boeing 747, 767, 777 and 787 produced in the second largest building in the world. As with any visit to Seattle we were this time for Plane Spotting at the Boeing plant.
Air Canada operates at Toronto Pearson (YYZ) a total of three Lounges – one for international, national goals and for flights to the United States.
