Hi Impact Radius


  1. Can anyone tell me the details of the CitiBank Ultima INFINITE credit card.
    I already hold the Prestige Card but am interested in the Ultima Infinite Card

    • @Shubham the Citibank Ultima Infinite is a invite only card at par with the Amex Centurion. Costs INR 2.1 Lakhs per annum. Let me know if you need more details and I’ll send them to you 1-1

  2. Recently BoB card holders, Platinum have also been included for enjoying lounge facilities in India, and I am also one of the Platinum card holder. The term and conditions says that only one person is allowed to use the lounge facility. I would like to know if my wife can accompany me since she will be travelling to US with me.
    I am having a layover of around 11brs. from night 9.30 pm to next day morning 9 am when my US connecting flight is due from Dubai. Can you advise how I can having a restful night in the Dubai air port during the night.

  4. Hi AJ,

    Nice detailed writing, inspired me to write details about the different airport airlines and lounge experience.

    I dont consider my self as a good writer but I always believe that its good to share the information all around.

    I was searching for a list of lounges available at Delhi since I am travelling on a business trip, and that is how I reached your site.

    Keep us posted about ur Antarctica journey whenever you go there 🙂

  5. Hi AJ,

    I recently moved to London and got the BA Amex platinum card. Before that I was holding Citi PM and AmEx Platinum travel (painfully converted from Amex Kingfisher). So, I just happened to reach your blog as I was searching for methods to transfer my Amex MR, Citi PM to avios points. Your blog is EXACTLY what I was looking and really amazing to see the amount of effort, care and details you get into. Keep them coming. Like me, I am sure plenty of users are finding it super useful. Best wishes, Sambuddha
