Hotel Review: Le Méridien Barcelona

DSCN0436

Barcelona is an amazing city to visit, and one of the biggest benefits is that the port in Barcelona – Port Vell – commences at the end of Barcelona’s La Rambla right by the Columbus monument, a city landmark since 1886. Last fall I had the opportunity to go on a Mediterranean cruise departing Barcelona,…

Delta Sky Club Breakfast

I’m really starting to like Delta’s enhanced food options in the Sky Club, especially the Delta Sky Club Breakfast options. In the past before the enhanced Sky Club option, I would have considered alternative airport club lounges like the Club at ATL or the out of the way American Express Centurion lounge in La Gaurdia.…

A Delta Airline Surprise – They Never Fail

For some flying can be routine, even boring. You pack your bag, say your good-byes, leave home for the long quiet ride to the airport, fight the long line at security, cram into the plane train, stop by the lounge to check some emails, then board your flight to snag the last over head space. It’s…

Delta 767 First Class – I Won Ben Stein’s Coffee

IMG_3461.JPG

Before I get to the post about dinner with DMX on an Airbus A321, I figured I’d share a report from my last Delta 767 First Class flight. On flights to the west coast, I typically look for a widebody aircraft, like Delta’s 777, A330 or internationally configured 767. None of those were an option…

Delta Starbucks First Class Review

IMG_3584.JPG

Delta Starbucks coffee has been added to all of Delta flights as of February 1, 2015. A few weeks ago, I found the one Starbucks coffee machine in all of the Sky Clubs, and it made for some great coffee. So on this flight, I just had to try out a freshly brewed cup of Starbucks quality…

The Delta Terminal C Sky Club is tucked away near gate C 37. It’s almost hard to spot as  the entrance is slightly hidden behind a food snack kiosk. But if you know what you are looking for you’ll find it near gate C 37, one of Delta’s newer Sky Club’s in the Atlanta airport.…
