I have flown with Lufthansa a number of times and have reviewed their long-haul flights in First and Business Class. My trip reports can be found below.
Overall, our most recent Lufthansa Business Class experience on the 747-800 (pictured above) was good but not great. In particular, if you are a single traveler, the proximity to your neighbor may feel intrusive and there are no seats available except in a pair or trio. This is not the case in First Class on their A380 which is frankly excellent, with super comfy lie-flat seats for sleeping and very consistent experience. It is well worth treating yourself to.
If you do choose to fly First Class out of Frankfurt, you will get access to the famous Lufthansa First Class Terminal at Frankfurt Airport. You can drive right up to this terminal and avoid the main airport altogether. The lounge in this terminal is swish and offers loads of magazines and papers as you would expect. There is a central bar with every alcoholic drink you could possibly wish for on offer. There is a restaurant area where you can have buffet or table food ordered off a menu, plus there are loads of lounging areas. Also on offer is a cigar room and showers. Perhaps most noteworthy, when you leave the lounge, you are driven to the plane from the First terminal in a Porsche Cayenne, Mercedes S-Class, or a Mercedes van.
