Below is my trip report of my first First class flight. This is on Lufthansa's new First class on the 747 with the Bed/Seat Combo. I've also included pictures of the first class lounge, first class terminal, and my porsche rental. I tried to take advantage of everything I could.

I've been flying mostly economy up until last year. My only longhaul business class trips have been on CX, JL, and AF which were a great improvement over economy. I thought business was fantastic until I rode on LH First Class. It's a whole another world out there. This will be mainly a picture report with captions. I will try my best to answer any questions.

On our way up to castle. I forgot the name of the castle as we found it driving around. Note the GPS did not have any preprogrammed routes so we had to wing it.

A Prosciutto slicer. Didn't know how to work it so I didn't slice anything.

Day room. The design could be better since it was hard to sleep 2 people on the bottom bed. The top bed was hard and had no padding. Not sure what it was for.

photo IMG_8125 (Large)

Looking towards the bathtub. There was only 1 room with a bathtub, the other 3 rooms only had showers. I did not have to wait, as all were empty.

Bathtub with blue ducky!

Shower. Had rainfall and handheld option.

We ended up taking the newest S Class AMG Mercedes to our next flight!

Our driver was just as excited as we were.

He was showing us the infared camera in the dashboard along with the excellent sound system.

Each back seat passenger had his own TV

The back right passenger could recline his seat, which would push the passenger seat forward as shown.

This is by far the best flight I have ever taken. The service, space, and attention to detail was something I had never experienced before. I can see why LH wants to protect this cabin and why people would pay good money for this. From the seat/bed, to the flight attendants, to the FCT, there's nothing that I would change about this. I would fly F through Frankfurt for all my flights if I could.
