After arriving in London, I wanted to check out the Arrivals lounge, which I qualified to enter because I arrived in Club World.
I was excited to try out British Airways’ Club World on a plane that featured different seats than normal. The seats are holdovers from BMI, which British Airways bought a short time ago.
I had an overnight layover in Amman, with a very early fight the next morning. It didn’t make sense to pay the visa fee, so I instead stayed in the airport’s transit hotel.
Since I didn’t want to chance missing my connection in London to make it home in time for a business conference, I changed my plans for a direct flight from Cairo to London in economy on British Airways, to instead get in earlier the next day, and in business class on Royal Jordanian and British Airways. For only 40,000 American miles, I secured the itinerary, which I felt was a good use.
I again was on board a business class Emirates flight, this time TO Cairo rather than from.
After checking out the ultimately mediocre IMG Worlds of Adventure theme park, I took a taxi from there to the Dubai airport once more. Check out how the business class lounge stacks up against the first class lounge below.
After landing once again in Dubai, I headed straight to one of my favorite hotels, the Park Hyatt Dubai!
After checking out the Emirates Lounge, it was time to fly business class from Bangkok to Dubai.
After another awesome one-night stay this trip at an SPG hotel, it was time to head back to Dubai. Luckily, Emirates has its own lounge in Bangkok. Here’s what that was like!
After saying goodbye to my A380, it was time to check out Bangkok. I chose the cheapest SPG hotel I could find, and ended up paying about $60 for the Aloft Bangkok Sukhumvit 17. It ended up being an awesome value!
