Lufthansa offers some great products for first class passengers, including the First Class Terminal Lounge in Frankfurt, and of course, spectacular seats on the Boeing 747-8i, A380-800, A340-600, A340-300 and A330-300. The airline has even been on the top list of having the best first class in the world according to Skytrax airline awards.
These aircraft fly on various routes from Germany to US cities such as San Francisco, Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, Dulles, New York, Houston and Boston. So if you ever find yourself aboard Lufthansa in a first class seat, here’s what you have to look forward to.
There are eight first class seats on any one of the aircraft mentioned above, each of which measures 81 inches in length and 31 inches in width. Situated in a 1-2-1 layout, all passengers have access to the aisle—for those sitting in one of the two middle seats, you can adjust the large panel with a click of a button for privacy,. Unfortunately, the seats are not suites, which is a bit of a bummer since we’ve seen airlines such as British Airways, China Eastern, and Qatar offer suites in business class.
Nonetheless, the seat is very comfortable, no matter if you’re sitting upright, fully-flat, or somewhere in-between. Lufthansa first class seat has been ergonomically designed, which adds on to the comfort. Pair that with the beautiful palette of gold, cream and brown tones, and you’ve got an excellent product.
Other features include a turnover service upon request with a mattress, 17-inch entertainment screen, which Lufthansa does a terrific job of offering a wide variety of films, shows, music and more options to keep you from boredom. Each seat also comes with a luxurious pillow and a duvet that is specifically designed to keep your body temperature just right, fantastic noise-canceling headphones from Bose, soft pajamas, slippers, and a new Windsor Amenity Kit.
There are two versions of the Windsor Amenity Kit—one for men and one for women—which you’ll want to take home with you. It can be used and reused to carry anything from makeup to toiletries and more. The kit includes La Prairie hand cream, face cream, lip moisturizer, perfume/cologne, hairbrush, socks, earplugs, eye mask, shoehorn, decent sized toothpaste (that’s not your basic white Colgate) and toothbrush.
If you haven’t flown first class on Lufthansa, then one of the first things you may notice is how open and large the cabin is. The reason is that there are no overhead bins. Another bonus is the large lavatories with a built-in seat, a separate urinal for men, and are equipped with shaving cream, razor, and a deodorant-like spray in case you need it.
