Casey Neistat is one of the most popular YouTubers (his videos collectively have well over a billion views). Even if you’re not into YouTube, you may remember I’ve written about him a couple of times before. I shared the video of him complaining about how American took away his comped Concierge Key status, and also his incredible video review of Emirates first class, which might be the best unpaid advertisement they’ve ever had.
I think Casey’s videos are sort of lost on many who haven’t seen his stuff before, but the more of his stuff I’ve watched, the more I’ve enjoyed his videos. He’s incredibly relatable, and you can’t help but share in his excitement. While he has been a very successful YouTuber, CNN acquired one of his companies recently for ~$25 million, in hopes that his expertise can help capture a younger and different audience than they’re used to.
Anyway, that’s not really the point of this post, though. Instead, a couple of days ago Casey uploaded a video to YouTube about his experience in Lufthansa’s 747-8 first class from New York to Frankfurt. Based on what he says in the video, it appears he was on a paid business class ticket and upgraded to first class with miles.
While he seems to literally sleep from takeoff until touchdown, the video is still super fun to watch, as it takes place largely in the lounge and on the ground. Lufthansa’s lounge in JFK is quite nice, and it includes a Business Lounge, Senator Lounge, and First Lounge.
Here’s the video, for anyone who is interested:
It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Lufthansa first class, so I’m happy to see when others are enjoying the product as well.
