I like knowing what I’m getting into. Before I eat at a restaurant, I check out Yelp for reviews. Before I head to a new destination, I devour anything I can find about it on IgoUgo. And before I fly—or often before I even choose a carrier to fly with—I browse Skytrax.
The concept of Skytrax is pretty simple: it’s like any other review site, but the subject matter is all air travel, all the time. Along with constantly updated reviews of pretty much airline you’ve ever heard of—and many, many you haven’t—there are hundreds of reviews of airports (will you make that connection in Miami? is there anything decent to eat at JFK?) and even airport lounges, for those of us lucky (or swanky) enough to be invited into them.
