Aegean Airlines is still one of my favourite airlines for travelling within Europe. The crew members are always friendly and welcoming and pride themselves on providing genuine Greek hospitality. To renew my frequent flyer status, I have to take four flights with the airline every year. I normally use my Business Class upgrade vouchers for these flights. However, as we were travelling to Cyprus as a family today, we took our seats in Aegean Airlines Economy Class and were curious to see if the service behind the curtain was just as good.
Zum Auftakt meines kurzen Segment Runs für Aegean Miles & Bonus Gold flog ich dieses Jahr in der Aegean Airlines Business Class in der Airbus A320-200 von Hannover nach Thessaloniki. Ich hatte ein günstiges Ticket in der Economy Class gebucht und mich dann mit einem Voucher in die Business Class upgraden lassen. Ob sich das Upgrade gelohnt hat, erfährst du im Trip Report.
Some may think I'm crazy to spend an afternoon during vacation in Greece with four flights. Sure, for the majority there is no point in flying to the island of Chios for just 25 minutes. However, I need this Mileage Run with Aegean Airlines to extend my Star Alliance Gold frequent flyer status for another year.
Lufthansa uses a solid, if not earth-shattering, product on short and medium-haul routes. In January we were able to extensively test the Lufthansa Business Class in the Airbus A320 on the way from Oslo to Munich. In the review you will find out how we experienced Business Class at Lufthansa in the new Europa cabin.
Once you have a frequent flyer status, you want to defend it every year. I have had Star Alliance Gold status with Greek airline Aegean Airlines for almost five years. Since we hardly took any air travel due to the birth of our son in January this year, a mileage run was necessary to extend the status.
Nach dem Check-out im DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Kuala Lumpur fuhren wir mit dem LRT und dem KLIA Express zum internationalen Flughafen. Die Fahrt dauerte insgesamt eine Stunde, mit einer kurzen Wartezeit am KL Sentral. Nach Singapur flogen wir mit einer für mich neuen Airline - Jetstar Asia Economy Class.
