I was dead tired at this point, so I decided to sleep right after take off instead of having the meal service.
Again PJs were handed out along with the amenity kit. At that point I made my meal choices to be reserved for after I wake up.
The two lavatories on Lufthansa's A380 first class are absolutely massive! Remember all the struggles moving around in an airplane's lavatory? Well take a look at this:
The lavatory is so massive that I can't even capture it with one single photo.
The design and layout of the first class onboard A380 is very similar to the B747-8
Here are a few shots of the first class cabin.
I requested turndown service immediately after takeoff and I was able to sleep for over 6 hours.
I asked for meal service shortly after waking up.
Here is the menu for today.
