When The Lufthansa Crew Stays at Your Hotel…

Assalamu alaykum from Qatar! I flew to Doha from Frankfurt yesterday in Lufthansa First Class, of course. The flight was excellent as usual and now I’m relaxing in Doha. This morning when I went to the beach (which was mostly empty), I hear German… I turn around and what do I see? The Lufthansa Crew from my flight! The Lufthansa Crew was excellent and the… Read More

Is Aeroplan Blocking Lufthansa First Class?

Despite not having flown Air Canada at all so far, I’ve redeemed over three million miles through their frequent flyer programme, Aeroplan. In general, I do like Aeroplan a lot – for the most part they have decent redemption rates, very competent agents, instant transfers from AMEX Membership Rewards, and Aeroplan doesn’t impose fuel surcharges on a number of airlines. However, recently, Aeroplan has been… Read More

Lufthansa Business Class Isn’t Bad At All!

I think everyone knows how much I love Lufthansa First Class and Lufthansa in general. I’ve flown Lufthansa more times than I can count and they are truly an amazing European airline with exceptional service in all cabins of service. While I’ve flown Lufthansa First Class millions of times, I’ve only flown the Lufthansa Business Class long-haul product a few times and I figured it… Read More

Lufthansa Breaks My Luggage, Sends New Bags 2 Days Later

Have I mentioned I love Lufthansa yet?! I was flying from Frankfurt to Kraków recently in Lufthansa Business Class on an Airbus A319 and checked some bags for the short-haul flight of one hour. I checked in semi-used bags that I’ve had for a few years now, though they weren’t damaged in any way. When I arrived in Kraków, I noticed one of the bags… Read More

When You’re Alone in the Lufthansa First Class Lounge…

It is no secret that I love Lufthansa and their entire First Class experience – it is simply incredible from the moment you enter the airport to the moment you pick up your baggage at your final destination. I’m flying soon and as I wrote yesterday, it seems like I might have an empty First Class cabin all to myself. But what’s cooler in addition to… Read More

Lufthansa First Class B747-8: Where Do I Sit?!

I’m flying Lufthansa First Class soon and much to my surprise, the cabin is wide open. Like wide open, it is just me as of now. I also checked the flight inventory in the booking system and it shows there are still 7 seats left for sale in First Class. Lufthansa’s First Class cabin has 8 seats total – meaning it is just me at… Read More

Booked: Lufthansa’s Longest Flight in First Class

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… Read More

Is This The Longest Lufthansa First Class Flight?

The Lufthansa First Class product is incredible – comfortable seating, delicious food, attentive and professional service, amazing ground services, etc. The only issue is that Lufthansa is eliminating First Class from their aircraft like crazy. It all started a few years ago with the Boeing 747-400 which featured a separate seat and bed in First Class. That was cut. Then First Class was eliminated from… Read More

Lufthansa First or SWISS Business?

I’m flying in a few days and naturally, I haven’t booked anything yet. As I explained yesterday, I love to book last minute because I literally have a wide selection of airlines to select from. Should I fly Lufthansa First or SWISS Business Class? I’ve flown Lufthansa First Class more times than I can count, but I’ve only flown SWISS Business Class once a few… Read More

Earn Miles & More Miles for Cathay Pacific Flights

Lufthansa announced a few months ago that it will begin codesharing with Cathay Pacific. Lufthansa would place their flight number on some of Cathay’s flights to Oceania and Cathay would place their flight number on Lufthansa, Austrian, and SWISS flights to Europe. Back in the days, most of codesharing success and practices were usually done between airlines within the same alliance. Well, like most other airlines, Lufthansa… Read More
