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 with a Boeing 747-400 in the Lufthansa Economy Class to Dubai.
Our feeder flight from Leipzig parked, as so often, on an apron position. After also our stroller was unloaded, we took the bus to the terminal 1A. From here we had to go through the "tunnel of horrors" run in the departure area B. After passport control, where our son was a bit impatient because of the waiting time, we made a detour to the pleasantly empty Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge (Lounge Review).
After an hour and a second breakfast we moved into the Lufthansa Senator Lounge (Lounge Review). Beginning just over operation upon our arrival. but we found a nice place in the sun overlooking the apron. Our son raved a bit through the lounge and we sat taste of a cocktail or two.
Lufthansa Economy Class in der Boeing 747-400 – Boarding LH630
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) 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
Each seat had a own In-flight Entertainment Touch Monitor. The range of movies, series and music was by extensive and well. Already at boarding were headphones in our seats. However, since these are rather low quality, I recommend everyone bring his own. This could attach a simple headphone jack right of the monitor. Here there is also a USB port for charging was the own 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.

Rating Lufthansa economy class on the Boeing 747-400
Insgesamt bietet Lufthansa mit der Economy Class in der Boeing 747-400 ein solides Produkt. Der Service war freundlich und effizient. Das angebotene Catering entsprach der Erwartung. Die dünne Polsterung des Sitzes macht das Fliegen auf Langstrecke allerdings etwas ungemütlich.
