Oh poor me, I had to fly Lufthansa First Class again. This trip, though, I really tried to branch out and try something new. But I just could not turn down the allure of flying nonstop on one of my favorite products.
- Aeroflot 777 Business Class
- Air Canada 787 Business Class
- Air Italy A330 Business Class
- Avianca 787 Business Class
- Delta A350 Business Class
- TAP A330neo Business Class
- WestJet 787 Business Class
A lot of choices, no? You would figure that at least one would open with miles.
Usually if I don’t travel on Lufthansa I just take United home. Here, though, I flew to Dubai on Emirates and thus was looking at a one-way United ticket (more expensive than a round-trip) or a round-trip ticket with a return flight on a future date that hopefully would work. My schedule is so crazy that I rarely make flight plans more than a couple days in advance. Thus, I wasn’t happy about booking a return I potentially could not use.
To complicate matters, the only upgrade space was to Chicago O’Hare and ORD is a big mess right now with the train linking the international terminal to the other terminals closed. I hear the temporary bus service is one big…mess.
So no United space, no space on the laundry list of carriers I’d love to review, but there was a Lufthansa nonstop to LA wide-open. And for 15K miles more than business class, was I really going to turn down the chance to fly first class and arrive back well-rested and in time for dinner with my family?
It became an easy choice.
As terrible as it sounds, I’m hoping for a bad flight…just to have something different to write about. But I’ve never had a bad flight in Lufthansa First Class and expect another extremely positive review will result from this flight…
One of these days I will fly each of the carriers on my list above. But not this time.
