The NEW American is looking pretty good

Photo Jan 09, 3 44 12 AMThe NEW American is looking pretty good  |  Airlines  |  A fews days ago on my way back from Barcelona to New York, I had the chance to try the new Business Class by American Airlines on the configuration for their Boeing 767-300ER Version 2. The first thing to mention, is that now, all seats have direct aisle access, which makes a HUGE difference. It feel to me that they have managed to create a product that goes in sync with other OneWorld members like Cathay Pacific, with a Business Class product that looks much alike.  Continue reading The NEW American is looking pretty good

LAN designs new VIP Lounges

LAN designs new VIP Lounges  |  Buenos Aires, Argentina  |  LAN keeps growing, reengeneering  and becoming more sophisticated, leading as the best airline in South America. Example of this, is the current process of designing its new VIP Lounges.
Moving away from under the wings of the American AirlinesAdmiral Club Lounges, partner in the OneWorld alliance, now LAN has its own VIP Lounge. I had the chance to experience this myself, yesterday at the brand new VIP Lounge located at EZEIZA International Airport in Buenos Aires, Argentina, at the new recently inaugurated Terminal B.
Studio Putman, in collaboration with noted Chilean architect Mathias Klotz. Comfortable, spacious, impeccable service and lovely food and beverages spread. Located in between gates 9 and 10. My favorites, the Louis Roederer Brut Premier Champagne branded for LAN. The showers, although EZEIZA is not an airport known for connections.
I was able to access since I was flying LAN Business Premium Class, but this lounge hosting a maximum of 146 people, can be access by all those passengers flying Business or being Zafiro/Emerald on OneWorld. CM @ Carlos Melia Recommends

GPS Carlos Melia Christmas in the air

GPS Carlos Melia Christmas in the air  |  Buenos Aires to New York  |  Today suffocating heat in Buenos Aires, tomorrow freezing cold in New York. First time ever – believe it or not – on a plane for Christmas Dinner. New experiences. Christmas Travel TIP: During these holidays you have to put loved ones first and yourself last. So for this Christmas my goal was to make everyone I love and consider my family happy. The problem was that half are in Buenos Aires and half is in New York. So I decided for a Solomonic determination… 24th. DEC Christmas Eve lunch in Buenos Aires, Argentina with my parents. 25th DEC Christmas Day lunch in New York, United States with Rubin. And everyone Happy.!!!! As for myself, well LOVED ones first…. so I will sacrifice on American Airlines Business/First Class, zipping through champagne, watching a movie and popping half a Xanax for a great night sleep. Merry International Xmas everyone.!!!! CM @ Carlos Melia Recommends

American Airlines 955 to Buenos Aires Business Class

American Airlines 955 to Buenos Aires Business Class | New York to Buenos Aires | Good Evening everyone, welcome on board flight AA955 with non-stop service from New York City all the way down to Buenos Aires, Argentina. Almost over 10 hours overnight flight, but hey when flying on the Business Class cabin, it only feels like two movies, a dinner and a morning breakfast. This time the seat was originally 11A but then the freindly crew moved me to a better 12E where I had a full empty business class row of three seats for my own leisure and comfort.
