This is my Story...What is yours?

Josh Cahill BBC Journalist in Kabul

I Love Flying as much as you Do!

You made it to the 'About Me'-Section...Wow. Alright, my name is Josh, I'm originally from Germany but I have been travelling the world for the past 15 years. My life of travels started when I hitchhiked from Berlin to Tehran, what a great journey that was. I later travelled around the Middle East, lived in the UK, Dubai, Australia and China. I crossed Afghanistan in a Toyota Corolla and joined the Arab Spring in Egypt.


But flying became my biggest passion over the past few years and I could spend hours and hours at an airport. I share my reviews here on my blog and especially on YouTube. Sharing my experience with Millions of other Frequent Fliers puts the biggest smile on my face. I have won a few awards over the past years and I can't wait what the future has in store for me. My biggest dream? To fly on a MD-11, my favorite plane, which I have never flown. Maybe dreams come true one day.

Follow my Journey!

...and who are you?

    Hi Josh:

    Do you pay for your own travels or the airlines sponsor everything?

    If you paid for all your trips, then how did you get the money to afford 150 trips per year?

    Thank you,

    Hi Josh, just dropping by to say hi after I came across your Malaysia Airlines video on YouTube. Well, your experience on their flight is on point as I did experienced the same thing back in 2002 on a flight from Frankfurt to Kuala Lumpur and I've not flown with MAS ever since. I guess their service hasn't changed at all! I'm sorry you had to go through the entire ordeal. Good luck in your travels! �

    Hello Josh,
    We just say your review and press releases on the Malaysian Airline flight.
    Sad to say, I am Malaysian, married to a Danish but live in Malaysia. We have been avoiding and still trying to avoid flying with MAS for most of the reasons you talked about. Unfortunately living in Malaysia means that we have to fly MAS to get to certain destinations. The service in MAS is “hit or miss”. We have had some shockers and the crew don’t care. Even MAS office don’t care after brought to their attention. All emails don’t get a response. Lately the food on MAS flights has gotten worse than previous years. Basically minimal, uninteresting food without much choice or even any choice. I would compare to food from a conference hot dog van. Even Malaysian stallside vendors have better food.
    I have almost documented problems with MAS, inflight and customer service that you would find interesting. One of my biggest issues in 2014 is that we decided to try MAS again and booked flight to Amsterdam. Prior to that both my Wife and I signed up for MAS enrich (member rewards) at a prestigious event in Kuala Lumpur. A week or 2 later we started receiving promo and point update emails from MAS. They address my wife as Mr. I look a a photo of the enrich application form. We made no mistake. I replied by email to MAS with an automated response “we have receive your email and will respond as soon as pissible”. 3 weeks later we get a response. No apology either but they will make changes. For another month we still received emails addressing my wife as mr. i called them, waited ages but got told that it takes time to change. It was changed but promotional emails didn’t. We had already travel to Amsterdam and back home to Malaysia. We missed our connecting flight in Amsterdam because MAS took off late.

    Hi Josh,
    Wow! What an incredible page/brand you have created!
    I came on here today to look at your review on China Eastern Airlines Business Class and was pleasantly surprised to find there incredibly inspiring stories, hacks etc.
    I plan travel extensively next year and wondered if you have ever thought about including reports from other travellers.
    I have a degree in Journalism and worked as a television journalist and reporter for Network Ten in Adelaide and Sydney as well as a News Producer at BBC and ITV in London.
    After a long, near fatal health battle, I have recently begun working (casually) for my Dad who owns a small resort in Bali. I am assisting with social media content, online management and am just about to begin blogging about his resort and the stunning west Bali coast where 'Bombora Medewi' is situated.
    I am sure you have requests such as mine on a daily basis and I understand you have built a very successful brand on your own. I would, of course, submit stories free of charge and (of course!) your edit would be final.
    I share your undying passion for air travel, in fact I purposely live on a flight path as I so enjoy 'planspotting'! My 'air travel crush' began when I was travelling with my family in Honolulu and we had a balcony overlooking the ocean, and in the distance, the airport.
    I would spend hours out there, desperately trying to entice my family members on to the 'viewing platform'. My crush turned to a full blown affair when I travelled Business Class to Tanzania 3 years ago. Since this time, webjet and seat guru are my personal porn!
    Anyhow, I have kept you long enough. Should you decide that you would like to produce your site on a solo basis, I would love to ask you how you started and if you had any tips for a fellow airline/air travel/ wanderlust junkie?!
    I am certain you're extremely busy so please get back to me at your leisure. In the meantime, safe and happy travels and dunke for your precious time.

    Traveling for 25 years now, but still have found useful tips on your website. How did I not know about Blacklane until now? In September, I go to Slovenia, which will be the 100th country I have been to. A couple of useful sites I like, are (you've probably seen this) and also, a very useful guide to you overnight airport stays including long layover tours, airport hotels, and just where to crash at an airport. Good luck in your future travels.
