When it comes to the First Class experience, it is best to fly it on ultra-long routes (and of course get to the airport plenty early to experience the wonderful ground services). My favourite First Class product is Lufthansa First Class and I’ve flown it at least 30 times in my life already (if not more). However, Lufthansa is drastically reducing First Class so there are less and less Lufthansa First Class seats left for mileage redemption.

I have flown some ultra-long routes on some amazing carriers, but it has occurred to me that I haven’t flown Lufthansa’s longest flight in First Class yet. Frankfurt to Buenos Aires is blocked at a flight time of 13 hours and 50 minutes, making it Lufthansa’s longest flight. The flight is operated by a Boeing 747-8 with First Class. Frankfurt to Buenos Aires isn’t exactly a premium route and therefore First Class is often wide open for redemption, with as many as four seats being available out of the total eight.

Well, I can now say that I’ve booked First Class on Lufthansa’s longest flight! With a 6 hour layover in Frankfurt, of course, to once again experience Lufthansa’s amazing ground services – including the incredible Lufthansa First Class Terminal. The longest Lufthansa flight I’ve flown to date would be Munich to Los Angeles – which is around 11 hours total, so this one is an additional few hours.

Lufthansa’s First Class is amazing – the food is delicious, the seat is comfortable and spacious, and the service is professional, friendly, and attentive. There isn’t another airline in the world that delivers such a consistent and incredible experience in First Class – from the moment you enter the airport to the moment you pick up your baggage at your destination.

I can’t wait to fly Lufthansa’s longest flight in First Class soon!
