Video: Gotta love a jet engine in your ear: Delta 717 back row flight from Chicago to Detroit!

In this video we take a quick ride on a very special plane, the Delta 717, from Chicago (ORD) to Detroit (DTW). And although we could have sat in First Class right up at the whisper-quiet front for $40 more, just for you we’ve sat ourselves in 27A, directly next to the engine inlet, for a special jet-powered symphony and extra fun views.
There’s no service on this flight whatsoever, but Delta still managed to impress. And the mild (probably temporary) hearing damage was all worth it. Tune in to find out what made this flight so great, apart from that engine view of course.

Video: Testing out the Etihad 787-10 Business Studio (plus a bonus look at economy)

In this video we take a ride on Etihad’s lovely 787-10 from Amsterdam to Abu Dhabi on EY78. Along the way we can’t figure out how to get our connecting boarding pass at Schiphol Airport; we have a chat with the Captain before departure; we get some beautiful views of Holland on the climb out; we test out the Etihad Business Studio seat, service, food and entertainment options; and we enjoy a scenic sunset descent over Iran and the Gulf.

Video: How does SAS transatlantic business class stack up these days

In this video we take a 9+ hour flight onboard Scandinavian Airlines A330 business class from Stockholm (ARN) to Newark (EWR). SAS cut a lot of onboard service and all its long-haul out of Stockholm during the pandemic so it’s nice to see both things coming back, little by little.
