In today’s world of travel, you have lots of choices of airlines from all over the world, offering different products – yet all we see on the various search engines is a price point. But are those two tickets really the same, the only difference the price? Certainly not – and to figure out whether a ticket is worth the price, you need to know what kind of airline you are buying from – are they safe and what’s the quality? What’s the experience on board or in their lounge? And is it worth earning rewards miles with them?
To answer all these questions and help you make informed purchase decisions for airline tickets and avoid disappointment or wasted money, I’ve put together my experience with airlines.
You can start with the Travel Made Easy posts to get a quick overview of the airline, the experience and the rewards program.
From there, you can get all the facts & figures, what the airline safety and quality ratings are, where they fly and what kind of planes they use! You can also get an idea of the experience you can expect in the different classes of service on-board and on the ground.
And you can find out whether it is worth earning miles in the airline rewards program: What does it take to earn miles and how can you use them? Can you earn more miles with credit cards or partners? What are those miles worth and are the flights even worth collecting miles for?
I want to give you the information to compare your favorite airline with an airline from the other side of the planet you might have never heard about! Can a $30 ticket be as good or as safe as the $300 ticket your airline is trying to sell you? Is that “Silk” class or “Dynasty” class as good as Business Class you know or even better?
Just click on the check marks below to find out more! If you don’t know the airline at all, I suggest to start with the “Travel Made Easy” overview and work your way forward from there! I’m sure you’ll be able to make better informed decisions the next time you buy an airline ticket. Save this post or keep coming back, I will update it with new airlines, experiences and reward programs – and always travel safely!
