I am in Nerd Overload today!! I got to watch the Lufthansa A380 land today in Miami. It’s the world’s largest passenger plane. It’s incredible to watch that huge aircraft move around. It takes 3 loading bridges just to get people on and off it.
I took a tour inside, that was pretty cool too. We began on the first floor. There are 420 economy class seats on that level. Each seat has a television monitor and I’m told eat seat has 2″ more leg room. I spoke to a guy who had to be 7 feet tall (I’m not kidding) who said, with all the emotion Germans are known for, “I was comfortable.” That’s saying a lot coming from a very tall man who just sat for a 10 hour flight.READ MORE: Chris Bosh Shares What Miami Heat Have To Do Next Season After Being Bounced From NBA Playoffs
On the second floor there are 98 business class seats. Of course each has a television monitor, the seat recline to near flat beds that span 6’2″ and each seat has a massager! How cool is that?READ MORE: 911 Calls Released Of Aftermath Of Memorial Day Weekend Mass Shooting In NW Dade
In first class, there are only 8 seats. There are two bathrooms, each is very large, including a dressing area, toilet and urinal. There are no overhead bins in that area, instead, each person has a locker to store their belongings. Each seat converts into a bed. There is turndown service, where the flight attendant actual puts a temper pedic mattress over your flattened seat. They even provide pj’s for each passenger. You also have a wall that pulls out of your seat, so you get partial privacy.
We checked out prices. For a roundtrip economy ticket the price was about $2900 (I’ll bet you could shop around and find a cheaper deal) and first class was $18,000!! Better start saving now!MORE NEWS: Shipping Issues Causing Fireworks Shortage Ahead Of July 4th Holiday
