I’m excited that I was actually use miles to get F class LAX-FRA and then MUC-LAX!
Total First World problem here, I know, but I have two questions…
1) I reserved seat 1A on the 380. The agent warned me that I could be reassigned (which would mean a middle section seat) if there’s a F class passenger that needs the bassinet (which is located at 1A). Has anyone ever been assigned to seat 1A on a 380 and then reassigned during boarding for this reason? (I really hope I can keep my window seat!)
2) I was actually hoping to get 2A or 2K, but both are already taken. Are 1A/1K as good as the second row? Looks like b/c of layout you get a full three windows in row 2. Is row 2 better, enough that I should just try for a different flight?
I’ve never seen an infant in first and it’s never happened to me but I dont fly THAT often. But if there is an infant that requires a bassinet, you could be bumped to a different seat. I was given the same warning when I asked Cathay to put me in 2A.
While more windows are nice, overall the flight is going to be the same. I dont think it’s worth the change fees and rescheduling for an extra window. However, what I think is worth the change fees is if you can get a long connection in FRA instead on your return so you can swing by the FCT for a few hours.
Second the FRA suggestion. Take a Porsche ride, and relax in the FCT for a bit. I would pay a change fee to try it once :).
Just to clarify, I didn’t mean a ride on the tarmac (although that is very cool) but the rental option try a Porsche on the autobahn 🙂
Haha Guarav. Thanks for the clarification. Wait…how many miles do I need to use to drag race my Porsche against a 380 on the tarmac??? I’d pay for that!
I’ve taken your suggestions…(thanks also, David W), and kept my outbound in seat 1A on the LH LAX-FRA leg…I have a 2.5 hour stopover in FCT. I won’t be able to go outside FRA, but hopefully will have enough time to take a decent bath.
Yes, that is a nice amount of time to try the FCT. Next time build in some more time on your layover for the car. No miles, just 99 euro for three hours including fuel and insurance.
