“Fly the friendly skies” with United Airlines – but don’t expect to be entertained….

As I boarded the United Airlines plane for the 12-hour flight from Hong Kong to San Francisco one thing struck me…. Can you spot what it is in this photo? Yep, no screens in the back of the seats and old-fashioned drop-down screens. I can’t remember the last time I was on a long-haul flight […]

The staff on the hotel front desk were English, and […]
