Upon landing in Frankfurt, I headed to the Lufthansa WorldShop to buy some Lufthansa items and of course visit all of my friends who work at various airport shops. I think I’ve spent most of my time in airports at Frankfurt Airport, not to mention I was stuck there for six days during 2010 when a massive snowstorm hit. The Lufthansa First Class Terminal is located away from the main terminal and therefore you have to walk and there isn’t a car transfer service to actually get there.
Lufthansa’s relatively new Pier A is beautiful, complete with a stunning rotunda and a large Lufthansa mobile that invites you to think of airplanes and far-away journeys, there can hardly be a better start to your travels than this!
I spent about two hours visiting various shops in the main terminal and visiting friends who work there, and after I headed to the Lufthansa First Class Terminal. There is currently some construction work on the way to the First Class Terminal and so I had to somewhat take a slightly different route.
The Lufthansa First Class Terminal is one of the world’s greatest First Class lounges; you arrive and thirty seconds later are seated comfortably drinking champagne. The lounge is separated from the airport terminal and therefore you are driven to your flight in a very fancy car (such as a Porsche).
I’ve reviewed the Lufthansa First Class Terminal before, so this post will be a shorter summary that focuses on what is different than my previous visits.
The First Class Terminal is beautifully decorated for the Christmas season, complete with Christmas Trees, ornaments, delicious holiday food items, and more. A special Christmas duck is available, unfortunately I missed the special duck by a day.
The Lufthansa First Class Terminal features the following amenities:
- Relaxing room
- Office units
- Copy machine
- Fax machine
- Credit card phone
- Free local phone calls
- PC with internet access
- Wireless network
- Local magazines and newspapers
- International magazines and newspapers
- German magazines and newspapers
In addition to the extensive, complimentary bar, there is a restaurant with delicious food (catering is done by DO&CO). There were also a few special, seasonal food items that were delicious. The rest of the menu remains more or less the same throughout the year, with special food during holidays.
After having some delicious soup and snacks, I decided it would be best to have a bath. There are a few bath and shower rooms available for passengers – each room includes high-quality amenities and Lufthansa’s famous duck!
All in all, I spent about eight hours in the First Class Terminal. I rested for about three hours, ate some food, had a bath, and relaxed for the remaining couple of hours. The Lufthansa First Class Terminal experience is amazing, you can put away your watch because your personal assistant will come and get you when your flight is ready for boarding.
The Lufthansa First Class Terminal is one of the three First Class lounges in Frankfurt, the others include:
