Yearly review – 2015

Yearly review



It was a good year for travelers looking for a good bargain, especially in business class. The oil prices are low, and airline profits are high. In this aspect, many carriers are having premium class sales from many cities. From Europe, you can many times per year catch a great bargain to USA from Dublin with Oneworld and Skyteam. On the other side, Qatar Airways has nice deals from Scandinavia, Cairo or Casablanca to all around the world in premium classes. I managed to book a Qatar premium class fare from Casablanca to Nashville, and the highlight for me was trying the Qatar business product, especially their new 787’s. I was really excited about trying it, and I have to say Qatar has raised the bar with their 787 business class. My review about their 787 business class is here.

Of course, this year too I managed to visit my family in India, USA and Hungary a few times. Apart from the family visits, the highlight this year was my trip to Cairo, which was on the top of my to-do-list for quite some time. A couple of years ago, I had to cancel my trip there, but this year I did manage to get there.
