I'm Leaving, On a 748.

My company is sending me back to Barcelona for the Mobile World Congress March 2-5 this year, and I've happily booked my first 747-8I ride on Lufthansa out of Los Angeles. Premium Economy. Good gosh, airfare is expensive! But fortunately this is all covered.

There will be pictures, believe you me! I'm very excited to finally get to fly in a 748I.


  1. Congratulations! I flew for the first time last summer ORD->FRA and back. It was before the premium economy was introduced, but on both legs, I was lucky enough to have no one in the middle seat next to me in economy.

    Looking forward to the trip report, and have a great time!

  2. Yeah I'm excited. The last two years I went on the MD-11 for obvious plane nerd reasons, and elsewhere it's pretty much 744 only for me if I can get it. Now with Air China and soon Korean Airlines joining in, hopefully it'll be possible to travel to both the east and west primarily on 748s, at least for the next 15-20 years.
