    I booked this trip about 11 months out using 125k (pp) US Airways miles and was able to get my brother and myself 2 seats on Lufthansa in First Class from JFK-FRA on a 744 and returning FRA-EWR on a 343. A few months later, I heard the rumors of LH switching to an A380 for one of their JFK-FRA routes and tried to change to a 744 to JFK on the return to maximize my shot at getting a chance to sample the new A380 first class, but unfortunately someone already snagged all the award seats and none opened up even though I checked every day. A few days later, it was official and I was one of the lucky few that had booked a LH F award ticket and would be traveling on the brand new A380 JFK-FRA. A little later and our 343 FRA-EWR was changed to a 346 so there was a sliver of hope that we’d experience the retro-fitted F class, but unfortunately that wasn’t the case.

    If you’d like help booking a similar trip, please check out my website www.awardtravelconsulting.com and fill out the form on the contact us page.

    So without further ado, here is my trip report of JFK-FRA LH F on the A380 and FRA-EWR LH (old) F on the A346. (I'll skip the FRA-DUS-FRA portion)

    ENJOY!

    Thanks for sharing. The JFK lounges look like those in FRA. Even the catering is similar...

    Thanks for the great photos. Nice to see good sized IFE screens in LH F at last.

    Thanks! Seriously, the small screens on the way back were horrible.
