Lufthansa Economy Class on the Boeing 747-400 to Dubai

Germany in November: rain, fog and low temperatures. To escape these weather conditions, we were quite early in February for a sun destination. The decision was made quickly to the United Arab Emirates. So we flew on 03 November 2017 a Boeing 747-400 in the Lufthansa Economy Class to Dubai.

Unser Zubringerflug aus Leipzig parkte, wie so häufig, auf einer Vorfeldposition. Nachdem auch unser Kinderwagen ausgeladen war, fuhren wir mit dem Bus zum Terminal 1A. Von hier aus mussten wir durch den „Tunnel des Grauens“ in den Abflugbereich B laufen. Nach der Passkontrolle, wo unser Sohn aufgrund der Wartezeit schon etwas ungeduldig wurde, machten wir einen Abstecher in die angenehm leere Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge (Lounge Review).

After an hour and a second breakfast we moved into the Lufthansa Senator Lounge (Lounge Review). Hier war bei unserer Ankunft schon etwas mehr Betrieb. Wir fanden trotzdem einen schönen Platz in der Sonne mit Blick auf das Vorfeld. Unser Sohn tobte ein wenig durch die Lounge und wir ließen uns den ein oder anderen Cocktail schmecken.

Shortly before the start of boarding we were on our way to Gate B28. This was B unfortunately, at the other end of the terminal area, so we need about 10 minutes for the walk. When we arrived, boarding but had not yet begun. It was not until 15 minutes late we were with our son first thing on board the Boeing 747-400. Our stroller, the gb qubit (Link to Amazon*), We were right on Gate - with the hope of seeing him in Dubai safely back - handed over to the employees.

Lufthansa Economy Class in der Boeing 747-400 – Kabine

Lufthansa economy class on the Boeing 747-400 had three cabins with a total of 272 seats. The Front was with only three rows (29 - 31) is the smallest cabin. There then followed by two almost equally sized compartments that were separated by the Galley. In all three cabins, except for the last five rows of economy class seats were installed in a 3-4-3 arrangement.

During online check-in we had reserved three seats in row 30th This was the second economy-class row and was right behind the Premium Economy. We packed our child seat with aircraft certification (Link to Amazon*) Asked on the window seat and the flight attendant for a seat belt extension. As we rolled to the runway, our son was asleep. A blessing!

The color scheme of Lufthansa Economy Class in grays and blues seemed clean, tidy, but a little bland. The headrest could be adjusted in height and fold the sides slightly forward to fix the head. A serious shortcoming of the Lufthansa Economy Class Seat is in my opinion the thin padding, which can be very uncomfortable while sitting in the long run.

Because the passenger necessarily meant in the seat behind our son, he had to play blackjack and was convinced that the harder he tapped the screen, the cards would be better for him, our son woke up after a good hour of sleep again. Accordingly, he was cranky after the bumpy wake! It took him some time before he calmed down. Hopefully it has the man disturbed 31A!

Lufthansa Economy Class in der Boeing 747-400 – In-flight Entertainment

Jeder Sitz verfügte über einen Eigenen In-flight Entertainment Touch Monitor. Das Angebot an Filmen, Serien oder Musik war umfangreich und gut sortiert. Schon beim Boarding lagen Kopfhörer auf unseren Plätzen. Da diese aber eher qualitativ minderwertig sind, empfehle ich jedem seine Eigenen mitzubringen. Diese konnte man über einen einfachen Kopfhöreranschluss rechts vom Monitor anbringen. Hier befand sich auch eine USB-Buchse zum Laden des eigenen Smartphones.

Lufthansa Economy Class in der Boeing 747-400 – Service

About 1:30 hours after takeoff from Frankfurt a hot lunch was served. For our son we had already pre-ordered a kids meal online. This is free of charge at Lufthansa, in addition to other special meals on flights from three hours. His food consisted of a pasta salad, pasta with chicken and a Cake-Pop. In addition, a box of crayons and a coloring book, which was also the menu on the tablet were. Of course, our son fell first on the candy. but that was not wrong because the pasta was still very hot.

Just before our son was finished eating, we got our hot meal. We had a choice of chicken and pasta and chose the latter. The court turned out to be a mushroom ravioli in out - overall okay! As we worked our son very much during the meal, unfortunately, I could not take a picture with the food.

The rest of the flight was quite unspectacular. Our son wanted to visit the galley and ran again towards the business class. The flight attendants were very friendly and outgoing, showing and explaining everything to him.

abstract

Altogether, Lufthansa offers a solid product with the Economy class on the Boeing 747-400. The service was friendly and efficient. The catering offered corresponded to the expectations. The thin padded seat makes flying on long-haul somewhat uncomfortable.

    Das mit dem Entertainment während dem Flug ist garnicht so schlecht. So hat man während der langen Reise auch was zu tun. Wenn ich fliege schau ich immer einen Film, wenn ich die Möglichkeit dazu habe.
