Hola from Buenos Aires! I landed in Argentina this morning, from Frankfurt, in Lufthansa First Class.. on Lufthansa’s longest flight. It was one of the best Lufthansa First Class flights ever – the crew was amazing and the food was delicious. The only downside is that I slept for nearly 10 hours! The total flight time was around 13 hours and therefore I didn’t enjoy the experience as much since I was sleeping the whole time.
Either way, the flight was amazing, as usual, Lufthansa’s First Class is incredible with professional and attentive service. So now that I have flown Lufthansa’s longest flight, I can say that the service in First Class does not differ much when comparing other flights of similar length. On flights over ten hours, Lufthansa usually has a snack available for First Class passengers in between the two meal services – which was true on my flight.
So what am I doing in Buenos Aires? Well I didn’t really plan much since I just wanted to fly Lufthansa’s longest flight.. but now I am in South America! Since I’m here, I figure I will explore more countries in the next few days, specifically Chile and Peru. I need to be back in Seattle next week to finish everything up before I “finally” move back to Europe, so my time in South America is limited.
I spent the day exploring Buenos Aires and while it was cold, the city is gorgeous. I love the old buildings – the architecture is simply stunning. I didn’t explore as much as I wanted to since it was around 10 degrees C throughout the day and super windy – so not the best weather for exploring. However, the sun was out most of the day so it wasn’t all bad.
All in all, I’m loving Buenos Aires so far! Also, I’m really close to re-qualifying for SPG Platinum and therefore I’m literally switching hotels every night of this trip.. Oh, the life…
