Qantas is the biggest carrier in Australia and offers flights on dozens of domestic routes. For my flight from Melbourne to Adelaide, the airline offered the best connection and thus I went ahead and booked the flight. The experience was pleasant, yet not special. As an airberlin Platinum member (oneworld Emerald) things in Australia are great. Lounge access and other benefits are available on Qantas and Virgin Australia, which allows to choose… Read More

Sunny stop-over in Los Angeles before our return to Germany! To break up the long journey back home from Chile, we decided to spend a night in Santa Monica. Certainly a good decision as you can see! As usual, stay stuned for a more extensive post of our short stop in Los Angeles here on!

In addition, the lounge has two floors and feels very spacious, even in peak hours. Only the food offerings are not really good for an international flagship lounge.

Our last hotel in South America is DoubleTree Santiago Vitacura. The property is quite new and got a beautiful lobby and bar area. In addtion, the staff is awesome and the rooms are well appointed.

As usual, stay stuned for a more extensive post about our visit… Read More

The Aeropuertos VIP Club Montevideo is the only lounge at the only international airport in Uruguay. As the airport is quite modern, the lounge also comes with stylish and modern interior. The design is gorgeous and the seating is very comfortable. Sadly, the food & drink selection is quite weak. Stay tuned for an extensive review here on traveluxblog!
