Albert K. Field Albert is my name, and travel the world is my game. I began my passion for travel at a very young age, I started this website as a strong means to further explore the world of frequent flyers programs (FFP). The relationship between customers and service providers in the aviation and hospitality industry always seems to be in opposition, however, since the introduction of United Airlines’ Frequent Flyers Programm since 1972*. This has significantly eased the middle spectrum between 2 parties. While the aim of airlines is still to generate more revenue; but for us,as consumers, are also given the opportunity to participate in the bargaining and exploiting from service providers. Living in a world of globalization where big data becomes vital for simulating successful economical activities, most of us will have to travel to other locations whether willingly or unwillingly, while you hearing all this fascinating stories about others, In fact, you too, can blend into the trend. It may not sound like how media illustrates, but indeed there are possibilities for us to have more spontaneous travel without getting held back by financial situation. My website consists of reviews of airline premium cabin products,airport lounges and stay reports of 5-star hotels and their executive lounges across the globe. In addition to all of that, I care the most about their frequent flyers program and loyalty program, which also includes banking partners. Plus, I spontaneously put up reviews and news update regarding premium water brands and restaurants. The purpose of this website is to share all of this information with my audience as well as inviting you to be part of my journey.

Due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in China at the end of January, Delta Air Lines announced on January 31 that it will suspend all scheduled passenger flights to China. The flight suspension was extended at the end of April and it has continued till this day. However, as China’s domestic pandemic situation is controlled, the market demand for flights from the United States to China has increased significantly. The situation coincided with the China Civil Aviation Administration’s targeted strict restrictions imposed on the Sino-US routes as an effort to cooperate with the overall national pandemic prevention strategy.

According to the press statement released by Delta Air Lines, the Shanghai-Seattle route will be operated by the Airbus A350-900 aircraft, and Delta Air Lines is committed to providing clean and safe travel services for passengers.
