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 and have reviewed the majority world's top onboard products for this blog. If you think that premium cabin travel is out of reach, read on to learn the tricks I use to fly around the world.

I also love visiting luxury hotels and resorts. I have reviewed a wide variety running the range from Park Hyatts and Ritz Carltons bookable with hotel points, right through to some of the world's most exclusive brands like Four Seasons, Mandarin Oriental and Aman.

Finally, I am a firm believer in the fact that the purest expression of a culture is in its cuisine. I love to eat and have written at length about some of my favourite restaurants around the globe.

If you want to explore our planet in style, you've come to the right place.

WORLD EXCLUSIVE REVIEW – ANA : New First Class Suite – Tokyo HND to London LHR (B777)

In July 2019 ANA shocked the world by announcing brand new First and Business Class cabins on their 777s. Previously ANA was renowned for fantastic service as well as some of the best food and drink in the sky. This was juxtaposed with a bizarrely utilitarian seat that looked like an office cubicle with blocked out windows. With the new seat could ANA finally be ranked as the best First Class in the world?

REVIEW – ANA Suite Lounge – Tokyo Haneda (HND) Gate 110

After a rather lacklustre experience at the ANA Suite lounge in Narita a few years back I didn't exactly have high hopes for this lounge. I set the bar low and this facility under delivered with aplomb.

REVIEW – SWISS : First Class – Montreal YUL to Zurich ZRH (B777)

After 24 hours enjoying the sights and food of the beautiful, wintry city of Montreal it was finally time to step into SWISS' all new B777 First Class cabin. I was so happy to be able to plan the trip in a way that let me try the older A330 product beforehand as it meant I could finish on a real high note.

REVIEW – Air Canada International Maple Leaf Lounge – Montreal (YUL)

Modern, thoughtful design featuring ample power sockets, a variety of different seating options and abundant natural light. This lounge is a genuinely pleasant place to sit and relax in, or indeed charge your devices and get some work done...

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.

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!

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 – 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.
