Asiana vs. Lufthansa First?
Hey guys – I am currently booked on Asiana First from ICN-LAX. I have the option of flying the other way via Lufthansa but it does add a lot of travel time. Thoughts on Lufthansa vs. Asiana first? Is it significantly better that I should make an effort to fly?
From what I can see LH only flies F from ICN to MUC, and I think that the direct F flight MUC-LAX (on the days I have checked) leave before the ICN flight comes in?
So you would have to spend the night in MUC?
Plus the F lounge in MUC is subpar compared to the F terminal in FRA. I mean it’s still a great lounge, but not one of the best in the world and worth going that far out of your way.
If you wanted to visit the F terminal in FRA it would involve flying LH short haul MUC-FRA in Euro J.
While LH F is very good, this might not be right route to try it on.
Thanks for the insight No Name. What I would probably be doing if I decided to take Lufthansa would be Lufthansa F ICN-MUC, Lufthansa J MUC-Fra, Lufthansa F Fra- to USA; hence why there will be a significant time impact and why I am trying to decide what to do!
Asiana has a very good first class product. While LH does too, I wouldn’t spend that much extra time to try it.
You seems to have posted while I was editing my last post.
Unless you have the time and it possible on your ticket to do a stopover in FRA or MUC I would say no it’s not worth it. If you can build in 2 nights and some leisure time in Germany, then maybe it would be worth the extra travel time.
No airlines carting, no matter how expensive the ingredients will be able to match a good restaurant on the ground. The same goes with any lay flay F seat compared to a hotel bed.
