Flying for the second time on Lufthansa in first class last June, I have to admit that I didn't expect much. My first time with them was not that impressive but fortunately, this flight turned out a bit better.
Lufthansa First Class Terminal
Lufthansa First Class Terminal is in a remote area. Of course, you can also have the chance and be driven in a Porsche if luck is on your side.
First Class Cabin, Upper Deck
The other choices were:
White Asparagus served with Sauce Hollandaise, Black Forest Ham, boiled Ham and Parsley Potatoes
Monkfish, Chervil Bulgur, Fennel and Celery Sauce
Breast of Guinea Fowl Indian Style, curried Lentils, Carrot, Saffron Mayonnaise, Naan Bread
The other dessert was Whiskey Mascarpone Cream, confit of Green Tomato and Pineapple
I was able to have a nap for a few hours on the separate bed and by the time I woke up, it was time for brunch.
Brunch was served about one and a half hour before landing and although the food was okay, the service was a bit slow since the flight attendant kept on disappearing.
I thought the food was really good specially the US beef although I wished the service could have been better.
Landing in Chicago
I was happy that the purser offered to hang my clothes and kept them in the wardrobe when she saw them on my bed since during my first flight with them, none of the crew did it. The food was very good and I loved their Escada tablet case although the contents could have been better. The separate bed and seat was definitely something special. Lastly, the service was okay but still needs improvement. Overall, a nice flight.
