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!

REVIEW – SWISS : First Class – Zurich ZRH to Montreal YUL (A330)

The main service was chaotic, no doubt about it.  However, the dine on demand really came into its own when I wanted to set my own schedule and here, much like at the bar, the service was sincere, friendly and professional.

REVIEW – Cathay Pacific : The Wing First Class Lounge, Hong Kong

The decor is beautiful but the champagne selection isn't great. Nothing that would ever be served in an F cabin, just some basic Moet and Veuve. After the champagne bar there is a large sitting area, filled with couches and signature CX Solus chairs.

REVIEW – Cathay Pacific : First Class Lounge, London Heathrow T3 (post-refurb)

In short, I didn't just leave this lounge feeling rested and relaxed. I left this lounge feeling inspired. Bravo CX. Bravo.

REVIEW – Qantas First and Business Class Lounge, HKG

If you are short on time and have to stay near the low numbered gates, the QF lounge is the place to be. The food, drink and service are, on the whole, much better than the CX Wing lounge - that includes the Wing's First Class section.

REVIEW – Cathay Pacific : The Bridge Business Class Lounge, HKG

Having since visited the newly refurbished Pier Business class lounge, this comes in a definite second. If you just need somewhere to grab something quick and you're pressed for time, this lounge is great. If you want to spend hours really maximising your lounge time and making a day out of it, The Pier is the lounge for you.

REVIEW – The British Airways Boston Lounge – BOS Terminal E

As far as BA lounges go, this one is pretty good. The lounge is clean, the service is great and the variety of high quality food is truly excellent. I loved the setting of the bar but the cocktails could definitely use some work. Similarly boarding from the lounge is a nice idea but the execution fell a little flat, once we filtered into a line of Economy passengers downstairs. Whilst this is one of the best BA lounges I've ever set foot in and nothing was massively wrong with it I wasn't wowed. When it comes to lounge refurbishment programmes, AA is very much the dominant partner in this transatlantic joint venture.
