Pre-boarding and Boarding.
Check in is at Terminal E of Boston Airport. For those in a rush, the baggage deadline is one hour before departure.
Boarding of Lufthansa 423 from gate E10 – part of the NLA (New Large Aircraft) pier at Boston Logan Terminal E
It’s a Lufthansa Boeing 747-8i (the passenger version of the Boeing 747-8), configured in a four class configuration.
The seat was in the exit row/emergency escape row of the Boeing 747-8i. Again, this is a variant of the ZIM Premium Economy Seat used on the Airbus A350, with different locations for outlets.
The seats are in the middle of the Economy Class cabin (one set of Economy seats in front, and the rest of the economy cabin behind
In-Flight Entertainment and Connectivity
In-flight Entertainment is offered by a Panasonic ex3 system, which also has onward connectivity to personal hardware via Bluetooth (if you can ever get the right app). Oddly, there was more content loaded on this system than aboard the A350…
Connectivity was provided by Panasonic and T-Mobile. I didn’t take advantage of it on this flight.
Food and Beverages
A departure snack, dinner and a breakfast service were offered.
Arrival was into Frankfurt-am-Main was 30 minutes early.
The full review soon!
