Among travel rewards aficionados, Lufthansa first class has a special allure. First class is a class of service offered on three class long haul international flights, and it is not to be confused with the domestic first class offered in the United States. When you are traveling on international first class, you receive service that is beyond economy, beyond business class, and is truly in a class by itself. Allow me to describe the experience.

The day begins at the Frankfurt airport where we bypass the main terminal and proceed to Lufthansa’s dedicated first class terminal. There, our bags are checked for us and we receive a separate security screening. Our passports are also given to a Lufthansa representative who returns them to us when we are ready for boarding.

In the first class terminal, guests can choose from meal options similar to one of finest restaurants. Needless to say, they food is superb, and travelers can order as much as they want at no cost. A full bar is available complete with fine alcoholic beverages and even a water bar that has exotic mineral waters.

A few minutes before departure, a representative will summon you for boarding and escort you to a Porsche or Mercedes vehicle that drives you on the tarmac directly to the aircraft. Passengers are then escorted to the cabin on a dedicate jet bridge.

Credit card users love 0% APR promotional balance transfer offers because they give them a chance to save money on interest charges while they pay down their debt. These offers, which last from as little as six months to as long as 21, let cardholders transfer one or more balances from their existing credit card accounts to their new account. But as a result, cardholders can achieve another important goal when they do so, consolidation.
