They certainly can!
I continue to appreciate the LH product- however it would be a shame to have TG for example start to do the same thing...

I don't see why you should complain. It helps to maximise the length of time you spend in the FCT (elevator).

But it minimises the time for tasking the 83 whisk(e)ys.

According to flysurfer they are Scotch so it should be whiskys.

You can only have the 83 varities if you are sitting in row 83. If you are in row 84 you have to complain. If you are in row 1 or 2 you don't get much choice.

A few more to add to the list:

- Invite a reporter from your favourite TV show/newspaper/magazine to watch you upgrade a non-upgradable ticket to F.
- Invite the same reporter to watch you play with a rubber ducky in the FCT bath.
- Fly SIN-CGK in F and complain they didn't give you PJs.

"Meantime, First Class service at Frankfurt Airport has been augmented by two new lounges. Aside from Frankfurt, Lufthansa First-Class lounges are in place in Munich and Dusseldorf, London, New York and many other destinations, worldwide."

MUC has the FCL, JFK has the FC floor, LHR has a *A lounge with a FC section, and DUS will have an FCL if Rambuster has his way.

After all DUS is one of the hubs.

They must be free-range because they've flown all over the world. Perhaps alex0683de can create a flight map for them.

At least LH has now introduced F pax and HON parking at DUS !
(if the LH marketing lingo is true, you will soon see my car parked in front of the SEN lounge ! )

What an innovative idea! HON Circle Members and First Class passengers will enjoy the benefit of using their own car as the First Class Lounge conveniently located adjacent to the Senator Lounge.

Yes, of course. This is an excellent idea. The first First-Drive-Thru lounge in aviation history. And Lufthansa wins the first award in this category for this unbeaten first experience.
