I was at one of my favorite restaurants the other evening looking forward to catching up on some work that needed my attention when to my complete surprise I found myself fully involved in a conversation about Lufthansa first class flights instead. Well, more accurately it was one flight in particular that was the subject of the conversation. I began my evening at the restaurant with every intention of catching up on some paperwork that I’d brought with me from the office. I sat there absent mindedly observing just how crowded the place really was and congratulating myself for getting there when I did. Suddenly, I came to comprehend that a young had come up to my table and was asking if she could join me. She told me that she’d recently returned from a business trip to Europe where it wasn’t unusual for strangers to share tables when seating was limited at restaurants. She was very apologetic but explained that she was merely hungry and rushed for time. I understood about the restaurant thing from Europe and invited her to sit.
As she was getting herself situated at the table I started thinking about the times I’d been to Europe and the number of tables I’d shared with strangers and how I too had carried on that same custom upon my return to the U.S., at least for awhile. All of the conversations that fell into as a result never failed to be enduring ones. And I was about to have those same feelings reconfirmed.
Apparently, it wasn’t just a business trip my companion was on but also an opportunity to tour a few other European cities as well. She enjoyed her time there and all the sites immensely but what she talked most about was how she was transported to and from Europe. She was a seasoned traveler but had never flown Lufthansa first class flights before and that whole episode seemed to resonate the most with her.
I don’t want to carry on like a commercial advertisement for Lufthansa first class flights but from her accounting of the whole thing it sounded like something that shouldn’t be missed. It’s been awhile since I’ve done any real traveling and from what she was saying it seems that things have changed a lot. She mentioned something called the A380 which I found out later was the model of the airplane which was chock full of incredible planning to give the most comfortable ride possible. I really didn’t need to hear anything more than what she said about the air filtering system which the A380 used to keep the air humidified to know that it would be something I’d want to experience. Her description of the bathroom area as spacious was definitely understated when she added more details about the layout. It was large enough so that it could actually be partitioned into individual washing and changing areas which I imagined could even accommodate an assistant to help you change from your traveling clothes to your business clothes if you so desired.
Her enthusiasm for her treatment by Lufthansa came across loud and clear. When I asked her how she managed to find out about Lufthansa first class flights, she told me that she’d found them quite by accident while searching the Internet for cheap first class airline tickets. Some people have all the luck!
