It is a very very very nice terminal indeed. I say terminal because not only does the name says it is, but it really is a terminal. Check in, security, lounge, bar, cigar lounge, shower, rest areas and immigration all in one .... and just for F passengers. Then there's the Porsche Panamera or Mercedes S Class saloons that drive you from the terminal, along the tarmac and straight to your awaiting plane.

Being very fortunate to experience this in 2012 with the other half, I can back this up!

Really would love to get back there one day.

Hmmmm I can see following this thread is going to cost me $$$$. Thanks Alanslegal :)

So I went hunting on the LH web site for the First Class product, but couldn't find the seat+bed configuration. Not in the F virtual tour, not on A380 F .... not until I went to the 747-400 config did I find it (having referred back to the article in the op :rolleyes: ).

I guess that means this config is being phased out, together with the jet (its not on LH's 747-800s). So not on my A380 legs SIN-FRA-SIN. Pity.

I must admit I struggle with LH's attitude to their A380s. I used it last year trans Atlantic in J and was very disappointed to find that it only had an angled flat bed, and the 'new' flat beds were being retro fitted. I guess there was a good reason, but seemed crazy not to go fully flat from the start in this 'flag bearer' aircraft. The A380 F I'm sure is very good, but its not the bed+seat configuration.

the 747-400 is a relatively new configuration - about two years old. Before that was the 'old' first class (big blue chairs with white head-rests and silver trim). they still have 20 in service :)

the a380s with the angled beds are unfortunately an issue. Has always been the case.

I have flown in F on QF (380,744), CX (77W,744), BA (772,744) and AA (772). None of them are really worth the extra money/points over J. Particularly if J is in a 1-2-1 arrangement (like CX) as one thing that is generally good about F is not having to sit next to someone.

For interest, I would like to give EK F (A380) a go but as we all know you cannot upgrade on EK flights (QF code share) using QF points. Hopefully I will get an Op Up from J to F when I fly EK next in April.

Have you got any EK status ?

It should help with your upgrade aspirations.

Status match is available for QF WP and I'm sure P1.

Thinking about my last few years of travel, I have managed to (somehow) sample a handful of F flights. I don't know how I did it but it's possible :D

Here's my list:-

SQ 744, TG 346/744, LH 346, CX 744, and some AA domestic flights.

QF 388, TG 388, KE 388
