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!

Breaking the Rules: How I booked Emirates ‘Gamechanger’ First Class

Ever since Emirates first announced their ground breaking new First Class cabin, I've had a deep yearning within me to try it out. Read on to find out how I booked the 'unbookable'...

REVIEW – Qatar Al Safwa First Class Lounge – Doha

The lounge is so quiet, cavernous and awe inspiring that it doesn't feel like a space in which to kick back and have fun. If you're expecting the Virgin Clubhouse you'll be disappointed. It is however one of the most striking and interior spaces I've ever spent time in. The calm and tranquility is a world away from the airport terminal below

REVIEW – Qatar : First Class – Sydney SYD to Doha DOH (A380)

The food and drink weren't quite on the level of JAL or ANA and the seats don't have closing doors like Singapore Suites or Etihad Apartments but the overall product ticks a lot of boxes. On a long haul flight Qatar First Class is exceptional and actually my main criticism is that it is sometimes deployed on routes that don't have the demand for First

REVIEW – Qantas First Class Lounge – Sydney T1

Qantas' flagship lounge is a fantastic space that feels undeniably Australian and very special indeed. The sleek white marble, mid-century nods to the golden age of aviation and expansive runways views make visiting this facility feel like a real occasion. The dining experience is genuinely worth making time for, with dishes and wines that will excite and surprise you just as they would in a top restaurant in the city.

REVIEW – JAL Business Lounge, Narita Airport (April 2014)

From the moment you see the Gold lettering on the grey slate wall, the JL lounge's elegance is readily apparent.

REVIEW – Qantas Business Lounge, Narita Airport (April 2014)

We stopped into the lounge to have a quick look around. Whilst the lounge is nicely decorated and has a cost feel, it is not in the same league as the JL offering. Which makes sense, given that NRT is JAL's home base.

REVIEW – Qantas: Business – Tokyo to Sydney (April 2014)

Unfortunately the bed in the 744 is not 100% flat, the foot rest sags and you do end up sliding a bit. I usually have trouble sleeping on planes and this flight was no exception. I ended up just watching movies for a few hours whilst everybody else slept. On the plus side, this meant I was awake to see the epic sunrise
