Reply To: United business v Lufthansa 747-8

Back to Forum


Can’t make my mind up and wondered what the collective wisdom on here would be.

Flight 1: United EDI – EWR – MCO Good connection times
Flight 2: Lufthansa ABZ – FRA – IAD – MCO (Leaves at 05:55 with a long connect in FRA)
Return 1: United MCO – EWR – EDI and lands at 07:30
Return 2: Lufthansa MCO – IAD – FRA – ABZ and lands into ABZ at 11:15

So, is it worth the extra hassle of the connection, and the long wait at FRA on the way out to fly LH’s business class on the new 747-8 which looks really nice, or do I take the simple route, and one I know won’t blow my socks off but is sufficient?

Both are the same price, oh, the internal US legs with Lufthansa are economy….so Washington – Orlando return in economy, there isn’t a facility to upgrade on
