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!

I normally fly out of Dulles. I fly to Doha or Dubai from one of those airlines, 777 300 from Dubai or Doha I go to Pakistan Karachi.

I prefer a business class seat that doesn't pair you up with someone. A close second to being able to sleep on a plane is being able to leave my seat without disturbing someone else. Lufthansa looks like a better experience overall but I do prefer the privacy I can get on a competing airline such as American with the reverse herring bone setup.

A few years ago I traveled on a Boeing 767 with USAirways round trip from Philadelphia, PA to my native country of Sweden. The return flight was 9.5 hours long which, to me, was the longest flight I have ever been on. However, no complaints here! Coming and going I flew First Class which was AWESOME!! RIP USAirways.

+Jeb Brooks Found you in my feed and catching up on some of your old videos. Great stuff! That captain's announcement was truly endearing.
My ideal flight length is directly proportionate to the experience. If I'm dealing with an uncomfortable seat and/or inconsiderate passengers it can be a real problem. I'm sure that's true with most people.
When traveling overseas, my flights are often 14+ hours, which is great in business class or if I'm able to sleep in a coach seat. Sleep is my most valued commodity on a long haul flight so I can quickly adjust to the new timezone I'm traveling to.
Free booze is nice but overdoing that leads to what I've coined as a "plangover" -- something that can turn a long-haul flight into a really unpleasant experience. My rule is if you're going to drink, stick to a spirit or category, wine is often the worst on planes.
For me the food can be more of a challenge since I reached the age of dietary restriction <-- This is always a problem... The "special" meals I end up with are often flavorless afterthoughts because the cuisine of choice is almost always French based on airlines.
What I really like is a good lounge. I love flying and the experience of a premium cabin but there's only so much you can expect on a plane. Now an exceptionally good lounge always sets you up for a good flight or it welcomes you after a long one. Better food, better coffee, showers, downtime, a place to work and everything else you need.

Great video. That looked like a decent business class flight. It was pretty comparable to when i flew business class on a British airways a380 from LAX to London Heathrow. The A380 is a larger plane and i think it may have had a little bit more personal space, but all in all, it was very comparable. Now, if you ever get the chance, hands down the nicest flight i have ever been on and i hope you get the chance to experience it, is to fly first class on Emerites. I flew first class on an Emirates A380 from Munich to Dubai which is about an 8 hour flight and it was nothing short of amazing! From the food to the service to the actual seat and how comfortable it was, every part of that flight was amazing. Also, when you fly first class on the A380, you are able to take a shower while you are in the air! From Dubai i flew first class on an Emirates 777-300ER to Seattle which is a 15.5-16 hour flight. To start, dubai is Emirates main hub, so i was able to enter the 1st class lounge which was incredible! It had all kinds of premium offerings that ranged from a sit down restaurant that you could order your meal from a menu and had a full waitress staff to serve you, a cigar lounge, massage services, showers, sleeping rooms, multiple bars, buffet style restaurant, etc. Everything about that lounge was top notch. In the first class lounge you are also able to board your departing flight directly from the lounge. Hopefully you will be able to experience a first class flight on emerites and will be able to do a video of your experience. Safe travels!

As Baltimore-Washington airports go Regan is definitely the best in my opinion solely because there's never anyone there. Dulles is a close second and, while it has gotten better, they're both 1000x better than BWI

Try the Lufthansa a350! I just flew from Chicago to Frankfurt on the 747-8 and back to Chicago from Munich on the a350 and I must say, at least for economy, I liked the a350 much better.

My partner and I took my two sons then 13 & 9 to Madrid, Spain Coach. When we arrived the woman at the dsk said Id liek you to fly Business Class upper Deck. We said that is so nice of you she. Said the 4 of you are so well dressed even your sons I had too., Upgrade you. For my work (now retired one of my First Class flights was down stairs. The Main Course was a Beef Rib Roast sliced at our seats. Itw as the day of smoking which I have given up I said to the stewardess I have to get my Cigareetes in my Jacket she brought over a dish with every cigarette on Earth.
