YouTube star Casey Neistat‘s recent trip from New York (JFK) to Germany got a little more luxurious after he used his frequent flyer miles to upgrade to Lufthansa first class. Luckily for us, the serial vlogger brought his camera along for the experience.
Neistat’s flight review guides viewers through each stage of the journey. The video, posted Monday and shot on June 15, starts off with Neistat’s exploration of Lufthansa’s lounge — including the exclusive first class “Wining and Dining” area where he runs into actor Wesley Snipes. Later on, Nesitat stumbles upon model Karlie Kloss, apparently also flying Lufthansa.
Once aboard the airplane, Neistat swoons over the perks of flying Lufthansa First: a secret cabinet of his very own, a swanky swag bag of amenities and a set of pajamas to wear during the flight. He “sleeps like a baby” in his lie-flat seat and wakes up ready for landing. Neistat ends with a message expressing hope that his video will help sway those considering first class and a reminder to viewers that he used miles to snag his upgrade.
Neistat is no stranger to flying first class: his YouTube channel is packed with videos documenting some of the nicest flights in the sky, including Emirate’s $21,000 first-class flight to Dubai. Neistat got that upgrade for free; TPG had to drop 90,000 Alaska Airlines Miles and $58 to do the same.
