Why I Did Not Bite on Yesterday’s Lufthansa First Class Availability

I’ll admit it here – ever since United announced its huge devaluation in partner awards, I’ve been thinking about creating a reason to fly to Europe so I could sample Lufthansa’s First Class services one more time. My experience last year was great, but I missed sampling their new First product after changing flight plans to fly home via Frankfurt instead of Munich. Ever since, I’ve been thinking about when we would return to Europe so I could ensure I tried the new product. And then the big news came out. What I paid 135K per person for last year would soon set me back 220K per person, an amount I could put together if I tried, but a depressing…

A Word On My First Class Experience With Lufthansa

I just completed a roundtrip aboard Lufthansa in their International First Class cabin, and I thought I would share the details of the trip with you. The flights I took were as follows: Atlanta-Frankfurt-Rome then returning from Barcelona via Frankfurt to Atlanta.

Within about a second, we were called down to the coach queue for check in before any other passengers were processed in the coach line.

First World Problem – Flying LH Through Munich…Do I Bother Trying for First Class Or Not?

As you know, Mrs MJonTravel and I are embarking on a 3 week European adventure late this month. The highlight of the trip will be a 14-night Mediterranean cruise aboard the beautiful new Celebrity Reflection. But another big feature of the trip is returning to the USA from Barcelona aboard Lufthansa in Business Class. I originally booked our return from Barcelona via Frankfurt into Washington. Of course, we now live in Atlanta, so I just added a tag end on UA to our award trip from Dulles. Since the time I booked the flight, there has been a schedule change, and we will now be flying Lufthansa via Munich, not Frankfurt. Returning on the Frankfurt – Atlanta nonstop is not…
