Glamorous Dubai – Introduction


I spent about an hour at the Lufthansa First Class Lounge in Pier A, and then decided to spend the rest of my time in Frankfurt at the Lufthansa First Class Terminal. I should say that this is a shorter review of the FCT, mainly because I already wrote a long, in-depth review of the terminal a couple of weeks ago.

After exiting security, I visited the Lufthansa WorldShop (my favourite store, ever) and bought some Lufthansa-branded items. I might do a post in the future about all of my Lufthansa WorldShop purchases. After the quick shopping trip, I went to the First Class Check-in for yet another First Class boarding pass and after that, I walked to the First Class Terminal (about a five minute walk).

I took the lift up one level to the main First Class Terminal lounge and I was quickly met by my personal assistant who requested my Senator card and passport so that she could verify all of the details, that took maybe ten seconds at which point she invited me towards the security area. About a minute after I entered the terminal, I was comfortably seated drinking some sort of ‘refreshing drink’ that was offered to me. You have got to love the First Class Terminal, I don’t think there is another lounge in the world where you get through security in less than twenty seconds and are comfortably relaxing soon after.

I had about three hours in the First Class Terminal and decided to first have a bath, which took about one and a half hours, then eat for about thirty minutes, and spend the remaining hour relaxing and enjoying the ambiance of the First Class Terminal.

Not surprisingly, there was a duck! The standard duck is now silver colour instead of yellow, there are of course seasonal ducks also.

The whole design of the First Class Terminal is gorgeous and shows Lufthansa’s dedication towards First Class passengers. The service is also amazing and there are more staff than passengers, which truly makes it a one-of-a-kind experience. When my bath was complete, I thought I might as well eat something since I hadn’t since the previous flight, and also because the food is delicious since it is catered by DO&CO.

Along with my meal, I ordered tea, which was beautifully presented with a sugar stick.

After eating the soup and pasta, I toured the buffet and selected some individual items to try. You can basically find anything you could think of at the First Class buffet. I opted for some salads and vegetables and to finish, I ate some delicious pudding for dessert.

After my meal was complete, I walked around the rather empty First Class Terminal and took a few photos. There were just a couple of people there along with me.

I spent the remaining hour relaxing and enjoying the atmosphere of the First Class Terminal until my personal assistant fetched me about thirty minutes before scheduled departure time, for boarding. She asked if I had a car preference (to be driven in) and I asked if a Porsche was available, she happily informed me that it was and introduced me to my driver.

Sadly the car transfer took about three minutes due to the fact that my flight to Munich was leaving from a gate really close to the First Class Terminal. All in all, I spent another amazing couple of hours relaxing at the best First Class Lounge in the world. The service is among the best in the world, and you are constantly looked after to make sure you are relaxing as much as possible. The Lufthansa First Class Terminal experience is definitely something special and everyone should experience it at least once!
