Interesting bits and pieces from around the world of travel and beyond…


The life of a 747 Cargo Pilot

Via the posts and stories on my Instagram account, I share bits of my life, my travels and my work. But: how much do I really work? How many trips a month? How long do I get to stay at destinations and what do I do on layovers? How about all those roster changes and how do I cope with sleeping at weird times? What do I do when I’m off?

You followers are a curious bunch! But I am all for showing ‘reality’, the unfiltered truth, both the good and the bad!

Garuda’s interesting take on a business class sale

Everyone loves a sale on long-haul business class tickets, especially me. While I get jealous at two for one sales, virtually any other sale type is fair game. I’ve just stumbled across a sale which has an unusual take on things.

Indonesia’s airline Garuda is offering an unusual sale in business class. It is called the “6/5/4-to-go Business Class Special Deal” which gives a little clue as to what makes a person eligible.

To be eligible for the fares, you must be two, three, four, five or six people travelling. What makes it more interesting is that the more people who go, the lower the price per person.
