Our review of Air Canada’s 787-9 business class seat from Toronto to Munich is live! The full review is in our bio link, along with information about how Australian-based travellers can book this using Avianca LifeMiles. Here’s our mini-review: This was a good North American flight experience, capable of giving Australian airlines a good run for their money. It had a comfortable seat with lots of storage and an immaculate cabin, although there was no Wi-Fi which may disappoint business travellers.  The lounge experience on the ground was a bit disappointing, with no access granted to the Signature Suite Lounge in Toronto for those paying for tickets with points. The Maple Leaf Lounge we got access to instead had a decent selection of food but didn’t have a large number of power outlets. Overall we rated this flight 4.5 out of 6 stars. Have you tried this flight before, if so what would you rate it? 📷: @fellow.voyager ______________________ What we liked: ✅ Sleek and competitive hard product ✅ Efficient service ______________________ What we didn’t like: ❌ Mediocre ground experience ❌ Limited a la carte menu ❌ No Wi-Fi ______________________ Swipe L to R 👉 to see: Air Canada business class seat; the immaculate 787-9 cabin; smoked duck and edamame salad; beef tenderloin with cabernet peppercorn sauce; lemon cheesecake served with lemon raspberry compote; breakfast parsley omelette; the amenity kit; the Maple Leaf Lounge entry; The Maple Leaf Lounge seating. ✈ ✈ ✈ ✈ ✈ #aircanada #aircanadarouge #aircanadafliesthere #aircanadabusinessclass #aircanada787 #aircanada🇨🇦 @aircanada #avgeeks #viewfromtheplane #upintheair #firstclass #firstclasstravel #firstclasslifestyle #avgeek #aviation #flight #frequentflyer #frequentflyers #frequentflyerlifestyle #aviationlovers #pointsfinder #frequentflyerpoints #airlinemiles #businessclass #luxurytravel #luxurytraveler #businessclassflyer #businessclasstravel #luxurylifestyle #frequentflyermiles

QSuites on Qatar Airways is one of the most praised business class seats available right now, and can be paid for using Qantas Points! You can do so directly using the online Qantas Frequent Flyer portal. The only downside is that it’s quite hard to find availability, and currently is only available from Canberra/Sydney (although it will soon be temporarily available from Perth too).

Our review of Qantas’ Singapore Lounge is live (check the full review in our bio link). Overall we thought this was an excellent lounge with lots of hot and cold food options, snacks and desserts, along with multiple self-serve coffee machines. There were also plenty of power outlets to charge up devices, plus 20 shower rooms for travellers to freshen up. The lounge could be even better if it had dedicated seating for oneworld Emerald flyers and first class passengers, and tarmac views. We rated this lounge 5 out of 6 stars! Have you visited it before? If so what would you rate it? 📷 & review: @shingkam _______________________ What we liked: ✅ Extensive food options ✅ Lots of power outlets ✅ Shower rooms _______________________ What we didn’t like: ❌ No dedicated first class / oneworld Emerald seating ❌ No tarmac views _______________________ Swipe L to R 👉 to see: The bar area, the lounge entry, seating areas, cold buffet, desserts, hot buffet, the window view of the airport, the entry to the shower rooms. ✈ ✈ ✈ ✈ ✈ #oneworldemerald #qantas #qantaslounge #qantasairways #changiairport #airportlounge #airportlounges #airportloungelife #airportloungefood #avgeeks #firstclass #firstclasstravel #firstclasslifestyle #avgeek #frequentflyer #frequentflyers #frequentflyerlifestyle #aviationlovers #pointsfinder #frequentflyerpoints #airlinemiles #businessclass #luxurytravel #luxurytraveler #businessclassflyer #businessclasstravel #luxurylifestyle #frequentflyermiles
