I have always loved traveling by plane… there is something so invigorating about the experience!! Being thousands of feet off the ground, getting to watch fun movies all night, and you get to talk to people next to you that love traveling just as much as you do! When my family and I fly to Europe, we always get Business class seats that lay all the way down! This is truly the best way to fly!! And it really doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg, my Mom is the Point master, and we ALWAYS travel on points! She will be teaching on this soon, so you can travel as we do! HERE
Without further ado, I give you a full overview of our flight experience from LAX-MXP.
Is LAX super busy??
—————————–Shop the look here———————————
It is actually funny that I used to believe LAX was chaotic and busy!! Now that I have some perspective (like traveling through Heathrow) LAX is just a little airport, and is pretty manageable to get through! We always arrive about 4 hours before our flight so we do not have to rush and we can enjoy the lounge we have access to prior to our flight!! I definitely recommend getting TSA pre-check and Global entry if you’re an avid traveler like myself! It truly makes the traveling process much faster and more efficient!
Star Alliance Lounge.
Before our flight, we relaxed in the lounge, got some snacks, and did some work before we got on the plane! I really like this lounge, as I have been to many all over the world… This one truly has a nice spread of food options for all types of diets, great cozy areas to relax, and really wonderful staff/customer service!!
Flights usually start boarding about 30 mins before a flight is scheduled to take off… And that is when the lines start forming to get on the plane. Luckily, when you fly business class or above, you get priority boarding. Which means you get on the plane and start getting settled a little early!
Here are the big cozy seats we spent the next 11 Hrs relaxing/sleeping in! We had 2 seats here, and 2 in front of these! And, of course, Lufthansa gives you a blanket and a pillow!
I LOVE traveling!!! (I am sure you are thinking, DUH…) So this is me super excited to take off!!
What to do on the flight?
This is definitely my favorite option and the one I opt for most when flying! It is just truly the perfect time to just relax and focus on a great inspiring book! I read “Everyday Enlightenment” (Such an incredible book!)
Here is my sister reading too!
#2. Watch a movie.
Being in Business class is great because you also get a whole bunch of movies to choose from!! I ended up reading for the first 4 hours, then slept a bit, woke up and then watched the new Book Club movie!
#3. Listen to an audiobook.
I love this too because you can close your eyes and rest and still get the amazing knowledge that can change your life! Some of my favs are “The science of getting rich” “The Power” “The Secret” I am – Joel Osteen” And “As a man thinketh”.
As I was getting sleepy, I decided to make up my bed… They give you a mattress pad, blanket, and a pillow! I was sooooooo comfy, so I slept very well!
Overall, I really enjoyed this flight and I would love to fly Lufthansa again soon! Watch my travel vlog for more details and travel fun! My next blog post will be all about the charming culture and city of Milano Italy!
Until the next adventure,
