A special treat from Lufthansa First Class

Six weeks ago we flew from Denver to Frankfurt in First Class and the very friendly flight attendant offered us a bottle of Champagne to take with us off the plane.  We thought that was pretty cool to add a little something to an already great experience.

Yesterday lightning struck twice when we arrived from Dallas in First Class and Lufthansa gave us an amazing special treat, a private tour in a Mercedes around the wide bodies of Frankfurt Airport.

As we deplaned on arrival at Frankfurt airport from a remote gate, the other three passengers in First Class were sent over to a small bus to take them to the terminal while the two of us had a Mercedes waiting specifically for us.  I am not sure why we got our own private ride but I surely wasn’t about to question it.

The driver quickly noticed how excited we were as we were calling out wide bodies that he mentioned we had quite awhile before our connecting flight and he’d be happy to take us around the aerodrome.  We immediately accepted.

For more than a half hour we drove around the airport at our leisure checking out all of Lufthansa’s widebodies. We pulled underneath Lufthansa’s A380, 747-8i, 747-400, A340, and A330. Though he wasn’t supposed to, he let us out of the car to take pictures and hear up close and personal the A380 and others at gate.

If that was not generous enough, he then offered to take a spin around some of the non-Lufthansa planes and we again accepted.  We took a steps underneath a few 787’s from ANA, Qatar and others.

One very interesting piece of knowledge he shared occurred as we witnessed an armored military vehicle resembling a tank racing towards the runway.  The driver let us know that the Israeli national carrier, El Al flight must be arriving because this armored vehicle escorts the plane around the airport.

After seeing and hearing all we wanted to see he dropped us off at the terminal to clear customs and head over to the First Class Terminal for a few hours and to collect our special edition five star ducks.

Today was a good day.  Another special memory from Lufthansa First Class going above and beyond.
