Only a few more days until 2018 is over. This gives us the time to look back at which airline reviews interested you the most this year on miles-around.de. We took the number of page views as the basis for the following ranking of the most popular airline reviews in 2018.
I've read a lot of good things about the Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge Frankfurt on a wide variety of blogs. Some frequent flyers even consider it 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 fare, we flew from Toronto to London in January 2017 with Air Canada Business Class on a Boeing 777-300ER. In contrast to the business class in the Airbus A330, the cabin in the Boeing 777-300ER is much more comfortable and corresponds to the current standard. You can find out in our trip report whether the new Executive Pod seats were also convincing.
Air Canada's Maple Leaf lounge network includes over 20 lounges worldwide. Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) hosts three of these, one serving domestic, one serving international (i.e. flights to the US) and one serving international gates. We visited the Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge Toronto International in January 2017 before flying Air Canada to London.
Unlike Lufthansa, for example, Air Canada uses a real business class on short and medium-haul flights. At the beginning of 2017 we flew from Seattle to Toronto and had plenty of time to relax in Air Canada Business Class on the Embraer ERJ-190.
Air Canada operates a total of three airport lounges at Toronto-Pearson Airport (YYZ) - one each for international destinations, one for domestic destinations and one for flights to the USA. On our way to Seattle we visited the Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge Toronto Transborder. You can find out how we spent the time there and what the lounge had to offer in the review.
Thanks to an error fare, we flew from Munich to Toronto with Air Canada Business Class in an Airbus A330-300. Despite complications during boarding and an outdated Business Class seat, Air Canada was still able to impress in terms of service and the quality of the food. You can find out how satisfied we were overall in this trip report.
In terms of annual passenger numbers, Frankfurt Airport is the largest airport in Germany. Frankfurt currently has four runways. From the spotter's point of view, Planespotting Frankfurt is particularly interesting because of the extensive cargo traffic and the many international passenger airlines and the two parallel runways (07L/25R and 07R/25L).
