I have a Swiss First Class flight to Boston lined up very soon, lucky me. However, my day will actually start in Frankfurt and – as I am flying Swiss First Class on the same day – I will be able to visit the Lufthansa First Class Terminal again (review here)!
There is now a great new benefit available to anyone who visits the First Class Terminal in Frankfurt – you can rent a Porsche 911 or Porsche Panamera for 3 hours for €99!
This is potentially the craziest First Class perk that I have ever seen!
It has also one of the craziest lines of small print:
“Please note that at least two credit cards, one of which must be gold, have to be provided as security for the reservation. In addition you must have held a driver’s licence for three years and be at least 25 years old.”
Full details can be found here. If you like the sound of this, the cheapest Lufthansa First Class redemption would be a one-way to Dubai (I think) which would require 62,500 Miles & More miles.
Lufthansa does NOT release First Class seats to other Star Alliance partner airlines until 2 weeks before departure – although you’d need fewer miles booking via a partner. Swiss may be more generous, so using another Star Alliance partner and booking Frankfurt to Zurich to Dubai – with Zurich to Dubai in First – would also qualify.
Austrian does not have First Class so you can ignore the reference to them unless you are a HON Circle member, which you’re not! (You effectively need to live on Lufthansa planes to reach HON Circle status!)
