AirAsia

We first used AirAsia on our first trip to Southeast Asia two years ago. Along with other budget airlines like Ryanair, I think AirAsia gets a bad reputation. It was a saving grace for us when we were backpacking because it shaved hours and hours off of our travel times, made border crossings much less complex for … More AirAsia

British Airways

I’ve flown with British Airways on a number of occasions in Asia, Europe and North America with both short and long haul flights. The first time I flew intercontinental I wanted to choose an airline that had an extremely reliable reputation, and afterwards most of the long haul flights I’ve taken have been with them, too. … More British Airways

China Southern Airlines

We used China Southern Airlines on a singular occasion just under two years ago, when we were travelling from the country’s capital Beijing to Zhangjiajie in the Hunan province. Like I experienced with Hong Kong Airlines, air travel in China was extremely pricey. For this two and a half hour flight we paid just over £100 one way for a … More China Southern Airlines

For many people budget airlines are something to turn their nose up, but in my opinion they’re an incredible way of making the world around us more accessible to more of us. They might not have private … More easyJet

Hong Kong Airlines

Air travel, as we came to learn, in the North East of Asia is nowhere near as cheap as its southern counterparts. The sheer size of China, however, means that trips from one city to another can take several … More Hong Kong Airlines

Ryanair

When you look up Ryanair online, the reviews usually aren’t too kind towards the airline. I can’t help but feel this is slightly unfair as it is an explicitly and proudly budget airline. I’m not sure if it’s because I grew up using the airline, but I actually think Ryanair  – and other budget airlines like AirAsia – … More Ryanair

Turkish Airlines

This past summer, for the first time, we travelled long haul with Turkish Airlines. The buzz around the airline has been on a steady incline over the last few years and particularly this year when they had an incredibly large advertising campaign as the airline partner of the Euros. Their advertising campaigns didn’t actually play … More Turkish Airlines
