Review: Lufthansa First Class Ground Services Frankfurt

I recently wrote a post “What are Lufthansa 1st Class Ground Services?” and it was quite popular. The inspiration behind that article was the incredible experience I had flying from Frankfurt to Los Angeles in 1st class and when I got to Los Angeles I was G to IDDY. Like, I couldn’t stop showing people pictures of it. Which was probably inappropriate at the airport urinals, but I’m telling you it is PHENOMS, and I’m pretty sure that guy reads the blog now, but that’s neither here nor there. I got to experience, in large, the much heralded Lufthansa Ground Service in Frankfurt, with Porsches, and bedrooms, and showers, and the ands could just go on and on so I’m gonna start posting pics of what it’s like experiencing Lufthansa First Class Ground Services Frankfurt!

From the moment I landed in Frankfurt and I saw a dude waiting for me next to a Porsche, with an Umbrella, ON THE TARMAC,  I wanted to run around in circle, fist pumping, high five-ing any/everyone, and repeatedly run the Rocky steps and enter a Video montage. Yes, a video montage…You know, where EVERYTHING is super cool and in slow motion and they show the guy doing all the hard work to finally be able to Score the winning goal, montage? Ya, those are the FEELS that your body CAN NOT deny. You won. When a Porsche is waiting for you on the runway with heated seats and the next stop is a baller a$$ lounge that he’s gonna drive you to – you’re in montage mood and all I could think was ” YOU WON, SON! YOU WON!”

Then it was to the Lufthansa First Class Lounge in Terminal 1.

I’m going to have a full review of the lounge coming…but it was baller. It was so baller and I was so excited that I completely crashed and needed a nap.

Thank goodness they had a bedroom waiting for me…and a shower suite


After filling my belly, having a 2 hour nap, and cleaning myself up…they came to get me when it was time to board. BACK TO THE PORSCHE! GET THOSE SEATS HEATED 😉



Could there be a better way to get ready for this incredible experience?


Lufthansa 1st class Ground Services are just an incredible extension of their IMPECCABLE on board experience. I would highly recommend using points to experience this, and here’s how I did it.
