Review: Lufthansa First Class A340 Los Angeles To Munich

Ah, Lufthansa. Back in the day I’d fly Lufthansa first class all the time, but nowadays I fly them maybe once a year (most recently last May from Frankfurt to Los Angeles on a 747-8). That’s partly because of all the award chart devaluations we’ve seen, and partly because I want to review as many new products as possible. However, I figure it makes sense to write a review of Lufthansa first class at least once a year, to see how things have changed (spoiler alert: for better or worse, very little ever changes about Lufthansa first class).

I boarded through door L1, where purser Petra pointed me towards my seat, 1K. Lufthansa’s A340 first class cabin consists of a total of eight seats, in a 1-2-1 configuration. All of Lufthansa’s Airbus first class cabins have a similar layout (A330s, A340s, and A380s), while the 747-8 has a slightly different layout due to the cabin being in the nose. The first class cabin feels really open and exposed, though each seat has a privacy partition that can be raised.
