    Hello Everyone!
    Not knowing if US will have any changes to their award chart(and routing rules) after exiting Star Allince I booked a RTW using US miles,going the "usual" North Asia via Europe.
    Sorry for the grammar mistakes here and there but I'm still ESL(actually ETL=english as a third language) [​IMG] Hope you'll still like it!
    I'll include many pictures in this report but here are the links to the detailed ones:

    Introduction
    Asiana Suites New York to Seoul and Swiss business class lounge JFK
    Almost Lost in Translation:Grand Hyatt Roppongi
    JAL new Sakura lounge HND
    Korean Air Prestige Class Tokyo to Seoul
    Asiana Business class Seoul to Beijing and Business class lounge ICN
    Thai Airways Business Class Beijing to Bangkok and Air China Business class lounge PEK
    Thai Airways First Class ground services at BKK :Transfer,Lounge and Spa
    Thai Airways First Class Bangkok to Paris
    Austrian Airlines Business Class Paris to Istanbul via Vienna & Business lounge VIE
    THY CIP lounge IST (Turkish Airlines lounge)
    Turkish Airlines Business Class Istanbul to New York

    Even that I couldn’t fly First all the way I was happy with my redemption(and actually Turkish was one of my favorite flights ever).We saw new places,ate some amazing food and were able to spend some time with our families.

    A great report, thanks for posting! And I agree, few lounges meet the standards set by the Turkish Airlines CIP Lounge in Istanbul! ;)
