Inflight Experience / Seating Shortest First Class flight with Lufthansa

Discussion in 'questions. answers. conversations.' started by Alberto Gonzales, Nov 12, 2017.

  1. Hey Lucky,

    I am looking to redeem my first First-Class with Lufthansa. I want to get the experience of the service and after see many of your reviews I am convinced the Lufthansa has the best one (and also I have miles in United).

    Because I have a limited amount of miles, I am looking for some route that doesn't demand a lot of miles. I am based in Europe (Brussels). Which route do you recommend me?

    If you want to be able to truly experience the service, wouldn't you want to fly on a long-haul flight?

    In practice, the cheapest would be Frankfurt to India, for 65k United miles. I also saw Frankfurt to Jeddah in Lufthansa First, but only on an A330

    To get the full experience you will want to fly from Frankfurt and visit the First class terminal there.

    LH fly A330's from FRA to Jeddah , Riyadh and Kuwait City in the ME. Only Kuwait is realistic due to visas, or should I say lack of them in Saudi Arabia.

    Flight to India is operated by A380's or B747's going to New Delhi, Mumbai and Bengalure.

    But frankly if you are just doing this for the experience, and will be flying back on paid ticket in a different class or even a different airline, I would say pick a day flight going west.

    What ever you do avoid night flights as the service level will normally not be as good, since the flight will be setup for people sleeping with regards to catering etc etc.
