Welcome to JarvisMarcos.com, a thorough and extensive database of my travel reviews.

I fly over 100,000 miles per year in First and Business class cabins and review every new product that I try. Similarly, I review almost every luxury hotel and airport lounge that I set foot in

I book the majority of my travel using sales, promotions and a variety of other tricks - often leveraging the power of hotel points and airline miles. If I use a special technique of any kind to book a travel experience, I'll mention it in the review.

This means that hopefully you'll have all the tools you need to book your own amazing trips too!

Qatar Airways : Business Class – Oslo OSL to Doha DOH (B787)

I was so happy to be able to share this experience with my Dad. I know how much he appreciates great wine and food and was delighted to be able to just hang out and enjoy his company on such a lengthy daytime flight. I did have minor reservations going into this, a fear that SQ would deliver a second rate experience and the crews would be disinterested, given that the route was due to be scrapped.

TRIP REPORT – The time I flew round trip to Sydney for £1080 in business class

In addition to having one of the best business class products in the sky, Qatar Airways frequently offers some superb airfares between Europe and Asia Pacific. As a promo for the launch of their service to Sydney, Qatar greatly discounted what has long been one of the most expensive routes in the world.

REVIEW – Sala VIP LATAM – Sao Paulo (GRU T3)

I love the design, the abundance of natural light and the huge selection of food. The fact that they have cans of soda and small bottles that you can take away is great too. Overall this lounge reminded me a lot of the Qantas lounge in Hong Kong and that is a very good thing. After experiencing this lounge I am now really looking forward to trying out LATAM's on board service!

REVIEW – D.O.M. Restaurant, Sao Paulo

n Brazil, chef Alex Atala is a man who needs no introduction. Easily the country's most famous chef and a bonafide national celebrity. For those of us located in other parts of the globe, he made a huge splash as the protagonist of a truly mesmerising episode of Netflix's critically acclaimed Chef's Table.

REVIEW – Air Canada : Business Class – Vancouver to London LHR (B789)

The overall experience was absolutely one of the best that I've ever had in business class. I had no real expectations going into this and came away with a real fondness for AC. If this is the service standard that they are able to consistently deliver, they have to be one of the best airlines in North America.

REVIEW – Plaza Premium Lounge, Vancouver (YVR – International Terminal)

 This lounge is a clear improvement over the AC Maple Leaf lounge; it is far more elegantly furnished, has better food options and better coffee. Still, in an international context this is by no means a competitive facility. This is not a scratch on the facilities of HKG, TPE and NRT that many of this lounge's guests will be accustomed to.

REVIEW – Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge, Vancouver (YVR)

Visiting this lounge made me feel dirty. I got in, took some pictures and left. The airport terminal is immeasurably more pleasant than this deplorable den of despair.

REVIEW – Air Canada : Business Class – Los Angeles to Vancouver (A320)

The seat was large and comfortable and featured both power and entertainment. The crew were polite, friendly and efficient (if a little lacking in oenoligical knowledge). The food was plentiful, healthy and delicious with a decent selection of drinks to accompany it.   If BA Club Europe was anything like this I wouldn't hesitate to pay the premium every time I fly!

OneWorld F Around the World / The Singapore Four : Conclusion (April 2015)

This trip was awesome. Super awesome. I went one and a half times around the world in the space of 2 weeks. I snowboarded in Japan, hung out by the pool in LA, went to Katz's deli in NY, drank at a rooftop bar in Singapore, hung out in the world's tallest Park Hyatt in Shanghai and tried four different SQ premium cabins.

REVIEW – Air Canada : Maple Leaf Business Class Lounge, Frankfurt

I really enjoyed the Air Canada lounge. It did get busier as time wore on but was cleaned constantly and dishes were replenished well before they ran out. Also, the design made the space feel a lot less busy than it would have felt had the seats all been placed in unbroken rows - as tends to be the case in AA or BA lounges.
