This Review of the Lufthansa First Class Terminal Frankfurt Airport is a 2018 update by my husband of our Lufthansa First Class Terminal Frankfurt Review from a couple years ago. That earlier review includes how to get to the lounge if you're arriving on a Lufthansa First Class flight, who has access to the lounge, lounge hours, and photos of a nap room and shower room.
On this visit, my husband had a relatively short connection before his next flight to St. Petersburg, Russia. Even so, it was well worth it for him to visit the Lufthansa First Class Terminal, because this way he cleared security quickly upon arriving at the lounge (after clearing immigration, exiting Arrivals, and walking to the lounge) and was able to be driven directly to the aircraft prior to departure, in a Porsche no less.
Lufthansa First Class Terminal Frankfurt Airport
As mentioned in my prior review, the First Class Terminal is aptly named, since it's a completely separate building and not connected to Frankfurt Airport's Terminals 1 or 2. You must either be departing in Lufthansa First Class (or flying a flight that will connect to a Lufthansa First Class flight) or have just arrived on a Lufthansa First Class flight and be connecting to another flight the same day, unless you're an HON Circle elite Miles & More member.
There are several seating areas, pictured in the above video, including this bar seating.
Lufthansa First Class Terminal Frankfurt Airport Menu and Dining
The Lufthansa First Class Terminal at Frankfurt Airport has a dining room with both a well-curated buffet and a la carte dining. Tables are mostly for two:
Here's the menu for my husband's summer visit:
The buffet has some nice salads and cold dishes:
And there are also hot dishes such as this Thai Red Curry with Rice:
My husband chose ravioli and pan seared salmon from the buffet, both of which were very tasty:
Porsche Ride to Next Lufthansa Flight
When it was time for my husband to board his next Lufthansa flight, his personal assistant in the lounge found him and escorted him to a waiting Porsche. He was then driven in comfort to his aircraft, where he was the first passenger to board.
While my husband unfortunately didn't have much time in the Lufthansa First Class Terminal at Frankfurt Airport, it was a convenient way to avoid a long security line, be assured of making his connecting flight by being driven in a Porsche to his aircraft, and grab a nice bite to eat. He was just sorry not to be able to take a nap in the nap room, a special perk of the Lufthansa First Class Terminal shared with very few other first class lounges.
