Lufthansa 747-8

Lufthansa may be having financial problems at the moment but most are self-inflicted.  The list of problems is long, but high up the list was their failure to invest in a fully-flat business class seat.  I’m not sure which was most embarrassing – ordering brand […]

New York Stories #5 – All alone in Lufthansa First Class, Munich to Newark

Lufthansa First Class appetiser

I didn’t plan to fly Lufthansa First Class to New York last week.  I knew I would be starting my trip in Hamburg but that still opened up a lot of options.  I looked at Virgin Atlantic from London but there was no availability.  I […]

New York Stories #4 – The Lufthansa First Class Lounge at Munich

Lufthansa Munich First Class lounge 3

Lufthansa is an odd airline in many ways.  There is nothing in the least bit exciting about its economy or business class offering – it is only in recent months that they have introduced fully flat beds in business.  Their main lounges are also unexciting, […]

New York Stories #2 – Comparing Lufthansa short-haul to BA’s new tighter leg-room

New York Stories #1 – The outdoor terrace at Hamburg’s lounge


I am in New York this week.  However, as the trip is very similar to the one I wrote up in detail last Spring, I don’t intend to write too much about it.  I am planning instead to run a series of posts highlighting things of […]
