on Tuesday I booked an award ticket for my mom to fly to Germany tomorrow in first class on Lufthansa to visit some friends and relatives for a week. I booked her on the always-convenient Lufthansa nonstop flight from Orlando. When I was making the booking a couple of days ago, the flight showed as being “F8,” which means they had not sold any first class seats yet, given that this is an A330 with a total of eight seats in first class.
Now it still shows as her being the only passenger booked in first class, with about 24 hours to go till the flight. Earlier today I told her that she might have the cabin to herself, which I figured was the ultimate experience, but she responded “well, I hope someone else books then.” To say that I was utterly confused would be an understatement, but she said “I don’t want two flight attendants looking after just me, that would be weird.” Hmm, I guess she almost maybe sorta kinda has a point. Having a cabin to yourself is nice when you’re traveling with someone else, but it might just be a bit awkward if it really is just you being taken care of by two flight attendants.
Of course in the meantime I’m hoping none of those darn business class passengers try to upgrade at the airport tomorrow! 😉
And, while it doesn’t really have anything to do with this post, I love the Lufthansa brand video (minus the cheesy, stereotypical, odd German dad with his son at 2:30):
