Flying with FinnAir

Flying with FinnAir

Flying with Finnair was a mixed bag. Some things were nice and some can certainly be improved. It was my first time flying with them. They had good prices for Asian routes so we bought our tickets with them. We planned a trip to Japan and chose to fly through Osaka. They also fly to other cities in Japan like Tokyo and Fukuoka. Love their blueberry juice! You can read through my experience below.

Philippine credit cards with airport lounge access

Philippine credit cards with airport lounge access

 

One of the usual tips for traveling in style within a budget is staying at airport lounges. It is certainly true especially on longer connecting flights. For a person who always fly economy, this is luxury. I’ve only recently discovered the comfort of having lounge access in many parts of the world thanks to my Security Bank Diner’s Club card. It gets me access for free to most airline lounges in the world. Diner’s Club even has a website to help you look for one wherever you may be. The link is here. Unfortunately, Security Bank has changed their policy with access to airline lounges as of March 1, 2016. They make it a bit harder now to access it so I am cancelling mine. I am in the lookout for a good Philippine credit card with airport lounge access. I travel maybe 4-5 times each year so for me, it’s really worth it.
