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 – Plaza Premium : Arrivals Lounge, LHR T2

In no time at all I found myself at LHR T2. This did not happen by accident. I had planned to arrive on LH as I wanted to check out the recently opened Plaza Premium Arrivals lounge at the *A terminal. It is the only Priority Pass arrivals lounge that I know of anywhere.

REVIEW – Bangkok Airways : Blue Ribbon Lounge (Domestic), USM

The Bangkok Airways domestic lounge is located between gates 2 and 3 at Koh Samui airport. Access is open to pretty much anybody with a credit card but much like the international lounge, this facility was not heaving with visitors as a result. With the gate areas being so beautiful and open - the relative value of a lounge is somewhat diminished at this airport.

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.
