Lufthansa 747-8 UPPER DECK Business Class | Washington, DC - Frankfurt

4651 ratings | 414454 views
Is there anything more romantic than a flight on a Boeing 747?! Well, I recently flew UPSTAIRS in Lufthansa Business Class on one of Lufthansa's Boeing 747-8's (D-ABYF)! It's the first leg of my amazing journey from Washington, DC to Kenya's Masai Mara. Over the next several weeks, I'll be sharing more trip reports! This Lufthansa 747-8 Business Class upper deck experience was really amazing. Watch this video to see what made the trip so special. And there was a lot! Not only was sitting on the 747 upper deck in business class amazing, but the cabin crew also offered a few extra "treats" along the way. Along the way, this flight report will include information about the seats, the inflight entertainment, the food, and the cabin crew from this Lufthansa Boeing 747-8 flight! You can even watch the Boeing 747 upper deck take off! What do you think of Lufthansa Business? Let me know in the comments!

So good to see a seating configuration that doesn't put premium passengers in pods like battery chickens

I flew from London to Johannesburg, South Africa in economy for 9 hours. I flew on Virgin Atlantic. If I had to do it again, I would. The crew was great, the food good, the entertainment choices, excellent! However, because of your reviews, I would try to fly in business class. That would be interesting!

FYI, the German Embassy has a large compound on the grounds of Dulles, and that Lufthansa flight gets a lot of business from German diplomats and govt folks. Might give them a reason to put their top crews staffing it.

7:20 none, I’m a pilot and even I know flying is the worst part of vacation

There's nothing like a 747. I know they're 'old designed' aircraft, but they're a magnificent plane. Have you ever flown on the L-1011? They were used to cross the Atlantic by Delta.
Michael Rodriguez (6 days ago)
I prefer about 17 hours, even though im not such a fan.

To fly the last of the queen of the skies is something epic and precious, I'm sure you're aware of that you seem to have a soft spot for the type, as does most anyone with even a mild infatuation with aviation.

It really depends on the length of the trip. If I'm going to be in the plane for 1-2 hours at a time I do not mind economy. If I going to do 2-4 hours I will usually do economy plus or business if I can find a good deal, and if I am flying overseas I will usually buy business mainly because I do not fly overseas often so I like to spoil myself.
Glenn Davis (22 days ago)

I flew Lufthansa’s 1 week old 747-8i from Dulles to Frankfurt and the only thing that was annoying was the douchebag sitting next to me video recording and reviewing the entire damn flight giving his opinion and asking me for mine at least twice an hour. On my way back home I flew an A380 Lufthansa and another guy was doing the same thing!! What horrible luck. I was talking to one of the stewardesses and she said unfortunately it’s a common issue. She said most crew members are annoyed by it but of course they won’t tell the paying customers! These videos all cover the same content so if you’ve seen one you’ve seen them all but to each his own I guess.

I really wish they would update their biz class seating. There is no privacy when traveling alone, and you have to climb over a seat-mate or have one climb over you for aisle access.
Rocky Dans (28 days ago)
Please can you show more of the takeoffs? They are most peoples favourite part i think, certainly mine. Thanks

I use the Bose QC20’s! They’re great!
AeroJ (29 days ago)
Live TV is one of my favourite in-flight pleasures...so satisfying to be connected to news on-ground, then to turn your head and switch off life, reminded that you're way up high, away from it all as the flight attendant asks you which wine you would like to accompany your main course over the Alps.

Longest flight I've been on was 14 1/2 hours back in 2013 on UA 803 from IAD-NRT on the 777-200ER. Then on to Bkk at the time when United still flew to Thailand. I flew economy. but great experience. I would do it again in a heartbeat. I am a aviation geek my self. Love to fly the longer the flight the better.

The breakfast is a joke. 747 upper deck was my favourite back in 1990 on Cathay Pacific/Brazil Airline. I even had seat on jumper seat for landing. You should try it next time on 747 upper deck. Good video.
