Well, it finally happened. I’ve been chasing Lufthansa’s new 747 first class for a long time, and I finally flew it from New York to Frankfurt. Heck, I landed about 20 minutes ago, so how’s that for turnaround time?
All I can say is WOW. The thing that makes this product unique is that the seat doesn’t turn into a bed, but rather each passenger gets a seat and a bed. Lufthansa actually has two “new” first class products, the other of which can be found on their Airbus aircraft, including the Airbus 380 I flew from Frankfurt to Tokyo a couple of months ago.
I’ll have a full report on the product very soon with a comparison of the two products, but in the meantime below are a few pictures I’ve taken. For those of you that have tried Lufthansa’s new 747 first class, what did you think?
