Right in the middle of our podcast tonight, Ben suddenly blurted out "Holy cow! Lufthansa just announced that SFO is getting the A380." This was followed by furious typing then a quick quip, "Guys, they haven't loaded in the new aircraft yet and there is first class availability. Book fast!"
With that, the podcast promptly concluded as all of us were far too absorbed over the thought of flying in the exclusive first class cabin of LH's new A380s to discuss anything else.
I am pleased to report that my Thanksgiving trip home to California is now booked (though not ticketed--I ran into the 12-hour hold problem) and hopefully the 744s will soon turn into a 388s on the schedule.
If you've got the miles, book NOW. Lufthansa won't drag their feet long on this--the aircarft type may be loaded as soon as tomorrow--and that means all first class seats will be zeroed out (in fact, I was surprised to even find seats on the 744 today).
As Fozz recently shared, first class is a quite a treat on LH's A380s.
(big tip of the hat to Ben)
