London To Madrid: It’s Time You Experienced the Lufthansa First Class Terminal at Heathrow Airport. A blog about the best terminals in the world along with what it is like to fly from there.
Step off the plane and into a luxury hotel lobby. That’s what it feels like when you first enter the Lufthansa First Class Terminal in Frankfurt, Germany.
Lufthansa offers a first class experience that is hard to beat. From the exceptional service to their unique terminal in Frankfurt, it truly is flying like an airline CEO or movie star.
And speaking of terminals, you can also experience this amazing First Class Terminal when flying from London Heathrow Airport (LHR). In fact, I just left it moments ago after being treated to some of the most amazing service of my life.
This post will cover everything you need to know about flying from London Heathrow Airport (LHR) on Lufthansa First Class including how to get there, what the experience is like, and how much it costs.
I have flown through the Lufthansa First Class Terminal in Frankfurt, Germany on a number of occasions and I must say it is a pretty awesome place to fly from. If you ever get the chance to fly Lufthansa First Class, I highly recommend that you connect through Frankfurt so you can experience the terminal.
The interior of the Lufthansa First Class Terminal was designed by world-famous architect André Heller. The terminal features a beautiful garden courtyard with a rooftop terrace. There are also 17 private shower suites and two restaurants in the terminal.
I had always wondered how this compared to Lufthansa’s other First Class Terminals (Frankfurt and Munich), as well as other “premium” terminals around the world (such as Emirates, Thai, or Qatar). My wife and I just returned from a trip to Europe and decided to fly out of Heathrow Airport because we could find cheap tickets from London to Madrid on British Airways Executive Club Avios points. This flight would originate in Heathrow’s Terminal 5 (the home of British Airways), but would operate out of Terminal 2 at Heathrow Airport due to runway closures at Terminal 5.
As a frequent traveler, I am always on the lookout for cool airport terminals. When I say “cool”, I’m talking about the lounges and other features that make an airport worth being at. When it comes to spending hours in an airport, you want to make sure you are comfortable. This is especially true when traveling to or from London because some of the best terminals in the world are there.
In this article, I want to focus on one of the best first class terminals in the world, which is located at Heathrow Airport (LHR). The Lufthansa First Class Terminal is arguably one of the best first class experiences in all of aviation. In fact, I’d go as far as saying it is one of the best experiences in all of travel.
The Lufthansa First Class Terminal at the Frankfurt Airport is one of the most iconic terminals in the world. There are a number of blogs talking about the time in there. A few years ago I had a chance to visit it myself and I was impressed by the whole experience. It is an amazing place to spend some time in and wait for your flight. The Lufthansa First Class Terminal has many similar features with the Lufthansa First Class Lounge at Munich Airport (which I also visited a couple of months ago).
In this blog post I want to share my experience flying from London Heathrow Airport’s Terminal 2, commonly referred to as “The Queen’s Terminal”. Since British Airways moved their operations to Terminal 5, it is no longer possible to be dropped off directly in front of Terminal 2, but rather you have to get off at T5 and take an underground train over.
A few days before my flight I received an email from Lufthansa inviting me to check-in at their First Class Check-in facility, which is now located near gate B44.
It’s a good thing I have already flown through the Lufthansa First Class Terminal in Frankfurt because if I had to fly out of Heathrow and experience this for the first time, I would have been in awe.
The first thing that struck me about this terminal was the sheer size of it. You are walking around saying to yourself “Just how big is this place?” It’s actually quite large and there is so much to see and do.
Once you get through security, you are directed towards what looks like a large waiting room. This waiting room has comfortable chairs as well as a personal workspace with an iMac computer if you need to do some last minute work before your flight departs.
There is also complimentary food and drink in the fridge that you can take at your leisure but if you don’t see what you fancy, there’s always a friendly staff member on hand to help.
We’re pretty big fans of the Lufthansa First Class Terminal experience at Frankfurt Airport, but today we’re going to tell you about our recent experience flying from the Lufthansa First Class Terminal in London. As a disclaimer, we didn’t actually fly first class because it was a last-minute booking and the only flight with seats available was business class. However, we were still able to take advantage of the unique benefits of flying from Heathrow’s First Class Terminal.
The Lufthansa First Class Terminal is open to all Lufthansa first and business class passengers, including HON Circle members, departing from London Heathrow Airport on a same-day Lufthansa flight. When you arrive at the terminal you’ll be greeted by name and escorted to the private security line where they use metal detectors rather than body scanners. After that you’ll enter the main area of the terminal where you can sit down in one of the incredibly comfortable leather armchairs or couches, have a complimentary snack or meal, or even take a shower before your flight.
You’ll also be given an iPad with access to all the latest TV shows and movies as well
Flying is a lot of fun when the weather is nice and the plane has in-flight Wi-Fi. Other than that, most people would rather spend their time on the ground. That’s why airports around the world are always looking for ways to improve the passenger experience. One of the more successful attempts at this is at Frankfurt Airport in Germany.
Frankfurt Airport is home to Lufthansa’s first class terminal, which is easily one of the best airport terminals on earth. Unfortunately, you can only get into it if you’re flying first or business class with an airline that uses the terminal (Lufthansa and a few others). If you are lucky enough to be able to use this facility, it’s a great way to start your trip. The terminal offers all kinds of amenities like free Wi-Fi, complimentary food, massages and even a place to take a shower. You don’t have to wait in any lines because all of the check-in procedures are done via tablet computers. Once you have checked in and dropped off your bags, you can go through security using your own private line.
