Flying First Class with Lufthansa on the A380 seems like a good idea at the time when you are being wined and dined like royalty laying on a bed in the sky……but just wait until you touch down and board a future flight.
Lufthansa First Class
You start asking yourself questions like…..
Why don’t I see this pre-flight?
Why don’t my seats look like this classy?
Why isn’t the cabin this spacious? Why is my flight so noisy in the cabin and why does the air feel different?
Why don’t I have a private locker dedicated to my seat?
Why aren’t they feeding me GOLD on this flight?
Why don’t I have two massive bathrooms dedicated to the 8 seat cabin?
Sure. On another premium award, you may find someone to drive you to your plane in a Mercedes.
…or find your way into a terminal dedicated to First Class…
..but when you are standing face to face with your airplane’s engines on idle, you’ll still want to know why your plane is so tiny?
The bottom line
We just touched down in Tokyo after 11 hours on the A380 in First Class and I can confidently say that was the worst flight that has ever happened to me.
The next time you are searching for a premium award redemption, steer clear of Lufthansa First Class on the A380 unless you are content with all your future flights letting you down.
She ruined me and I am letting you know so you don’t make the same mistake. You’ve been warned!
