To the point Here's our photo report from the Lufthansa flight from Munich to Montreal in First Class using Aeroplan Miles, with a look at the First Lounge in Munich.

After flying First Class on British Airways with my Avios miles for my outbound flight, here I am on my return flight to Montreal on a Star Alliance member Lufthansa A330 in First Class.

This flight was funded by
70,000 Aeroplan miles
This flight was financed by Aeroplan Miles, a great deal in terms of the services offered, which easily surpass the experience on British Airways! To know how I set up this itinerary, you can read this article.

In my last report, we were left with the transfer to the tarmac in a Porsche Cayenne, the privilege of being in first class on Lufthansa.

Having just arrived from Frankfurt, I head to the First Class lounge at Munich Airport.

The lounge offers a limousine service directly to the boarding gate. Very practical!

I decide to sit down to see the service offered. In passing, you can see the envelope of my First Class ticket, which allows the staff at the boarding gate to identify the passengers “to be boarded in priority”.

I arrive at my gate. I was supposed to be the only one in First Class…. but 7 people were upgraded that day from business class (all frequent travelers for Siemens, Mercedes and BMW… Montreal Grand Prix obliges!).

The cabin will therefore be complete!

Once on board, what strikes me is the space given to passengers in First Class. Here are the seats 1k and 2k. I’ll be sitting in seat 2k (deliberately chosen to not be near the kitchens and toilets).

Everything is carefully arranged: the rose, a quality screen, an ottoman that can store everything you may need in flight.

Shortly after being seated, the flight attendant calls me by name (which is very nice!) and offers me a glass of champagne and an aperitif.

Seeing me taking a lot of pictures, I explain to her that I am the head of a specialized blog and she offers me to take some pictures of me to immortalize the moment.

She will then bring me a pair of pajamas in my size, as well as slippers and the traditional travel kit.

WIFI is also available on board for less than 20 euros. I choose not to connect to it, wishing to take advantage of this flight to “disconnect”!

Shortly after takeoff, a wipe is brought to me to refresh me.

And a glass of Château Latour.

Before resting, a small turn to the toilets to see the space granted. Meanwhile, the hostess will have made my bed.

We soon arrive in Montreal, the landing is announced under a driving rain.

Bottom line

As an aviation enthusiast, you can probably guess from these articles: this was my best air travel experience.

The outbound trip was already top-notch on British Airways, but the return trip was a step above: the service on the ground and in the air was simply remarkable, as was the product offered by Lufthansa and Star Alliance.

That’s why we at milesopedia love the Aeroplan program so much: without Aeroplan miles, it would have been impossible to book an experience like this unless you spent several thousand dollars!

If you need advice on how to set up this type of trip, don’ t hesitate to ask your questions in our Facebook group!

The maps to make this trip

Here, I needed American Express with Membership Rewards (transferable to Aeroplan miles) and my Scotiabank American Express Gold card (which allowed me to pay Aeroplan taxes with the Scotia Bonus points).
