Welcome to the new 2PAXfly

2PAXfly, like a gay divorcee, has had a bit of a make-over. 

We slung some starving artist a bit of cash and got a new logo, bribed some tech-heads to give us a new website platform, and sweet-talked our way into getting some cute graphics guy to do a redesign.

I didn’t think I was a secret amenity pack hoarder with a problem until I opened my Amenity Pack Storage Facility.

One of the nice parts of flying towards the front of the plane is the amenity packs the airlines give you. It’s like a gift-with-purchase – you think you are getting something for free, but in fact you have paid a very high price for not very much. Still its always nice to receive them, with the strange expectation that there will be some surprise, when in fact the contents are invariably the same: socks, eyeshades, moisturiser, earplugs, a comb/brush you will never use, a toothbrush and paste, which you will, and lip balm. Ok, I think that just...

What should an airport lounge be all about? Vietnam Airlines Lounge – Saigon

Northern Hemisphere Christmas Trip Planning Skyteam Lounge – Sydney Sydney to Saigon Airport to Hotel Transfer Intercontinental Asiana, Saigon Vietnam Airlines Business Class Lounge – Tan Son Nhat International Airport Saigon to London in 787-9   What should an airport lounge be all about?

I went to Cuba in 2011.  (cue reason to post some photographs!) I partly went because there were rumours then that the Obama administration would re-open diplomatic relations with Cuba. Cuba’s infamous cars from the 1950’s. Held together with a combination of wire, chewing gum and enthusiasm. Hire one with the driver for a half day and tool around like you were in Happy Days. Five years later and the ice has been broken. First up was the suspension of a swag of sanctions a year ago, and now,  in the next week or so, it looks like the...

Airport Hotel Transfers – a luxury that is worth it

Northern Hemisphere Christmas Trip Planning Skyteam Lounge – Sydney Sydney to Saigon Airport to Hotel Transfer Intercontinental Asiana, Saigon Vietnam Airlines Business Class Lounge – Tan Son Nhat International Airport Saigon to London in 787-9 I don’t remember any motorcycle helmets the last time I was in Vietnam – somewhere around 2005. Wardrobes, chickens and families of 8 all on the same motorcycle – yes, but helmets – no. Maybe its age, or maybe its income, but these days, I prefer riding in a pre-booked transfer from the Airport to my hotel. Arrival Charm I used to think the scrambling...
