    My parents are right now on LH436 on May 9th DUS-ORD in Business...Is it worth another 17,500 to upgrade to First? Any pictures? I can't seem to find current pictures?

    For a daytime flight I don't actually think it is particularly worth it. Doubly so out of DUS where there are no premium ground services (i.e. no FCL/FCT).

    The seat on the 343 is angled flat and not great for overnight sleeping but I have no problem napping on it for an hour or two. And the food will be fine, though nothing spectacular.

    Thanks Seth but the lack of reclining all the way is really annoying no? it would be worth the 17k just to be able to lie flat, no?

    Not for me on a daytime flight. I sleep fine in the LH seats, particularly if just for a short nap on the daytime flight.

    Have to agree with Wandering Aramean - not worth to spend the extra 17k on a dayflight - LH is not the best - but to sleep a few hours it is o.k.

    Frequent flyer of LH from DUS in the past - and there is really nothing special to expect from LH-F in DUS... save the miles and hope your parents can still enjoy the flight...
