How did you get a seat? do you work for LH?
thats amazing, I wouldn't know how to contain myself either, even though same as you I am a boeing fan!

do you know if you are sitting upstairs? and are the seats the ones that are going to be in the actual plane when it goes into service?

Good question. I don't quite know if LH have nailed down the final config yet.

Does this mean you are among the few to say they were on board the first A380 flight to depart the states? Very lucky, Something to tell the grandkids about.
