First Class on the Lufthansa A380

Last week I had the pleasure of taking a ride on the Lufthansa A380 in First.  A truly amazing experience, I highly recommend.

While the seats aren't suites like Turkish or Emirates, they are very private and quite spacious.  One of the coolest parts was that each person gets a private locker with a combination lock.

Here are some pictures I was able to snag.

The private storage locker.

Very nice Fozz! I'm jealous. :)

Very nice! What is up on that top picture? It looks like a mini-bar of sorts.

You UPGRD bloggers are always getting upgrades but never talking about the mechanics of obtaining the upgrade. If you are buying the first class ticket out of pocket I apologize and groveling beg to be your friend :).

Re lockers and first class storage in general: I have always been amazed that airlines would call a product first class and then not have storage space for each first class passenger to accessible store, no less store, their carry ons and jacket(s).

@Kevin: The crew just used it as a prep station, it was just a working surface.

@Michael D: This was a mileage redemption so there was no upgrade involved. The same for my Thanksgiving trip.

@Michael: You'd like flying in Turkish First on their leased 77Ws from JET. Each passenger has their own closet!
