Why I’m an Airline Travel Specialist
I take pride in arranging what is usually the least pleasant part of a trip, the air travel, and making it as painless as possible. If I do my job well, the clients don’t remember the plane rides.

Most Recent Trip
My most recent trip was to Dubai, UAE. I stayed in amazing hotels, and went to the top of Burj Khalifa, which is currently the world’s tallest building! This stood in stark contrast to the old part of the city (al Fahidi district), and the gold and spice souks. I also got to experience a desert safari, which included a hectic drive over the dunes, a falconry demonstration, and a lovely dinner under the stars complete with music and belly dancing.
Recommended Travel Experience/Destination Right Now
As the air guy, I’m going to put my own twist on this. Wherever you go, be sure to have someone knowledgeable planning the airfare. A professional will help you balance all the factors, including comfort, cost, route, and price.
Emirates offers fantastic business class fares on a pretty consistent basis, and complimentary chauffeur service to their business class customers. They also offer complimentary hotels for forced stopovers in Dubai.
Delta flies just about EVERYWHERE, and even the economy seats are pretty comfortable.
Great fares for domestic flights and bags fly free!
South African Airways
Often the best fares to Africa, and great US customer service department.
Air New Zealand
Just because I love the “skycouch” concept.
