To make it even easier for you to leave your Euros behind when traveling, Lufthansa and Frankfurt Airport have teamed to make shopping even easier.

As of now, passengers who visit most of LH’s lounges inside Terminal 1 will be able to use lounge iPads to shop virtually all of the stores located at the airport.   If you purchase anything, it will be delivered to you at the lounge within 30 minutes.   From what I gathered this program will not be available in the First Class Terminal, which has its own dedicated shop.

During the first quarter of this year, the program will continue to expand to provide other options as well.   For example the next phase of the program will allow passengers to use iPads located at check-in areas where they will be able to order food from the airport’s various restaurants and have the meal brought to them at their departure gate so that the meal can be enjoyed during the flight.

Another expansion of the program in the near future will allow you to shop while aboard long haul flights and have your order waiting for you at your gate when you de-plane.  I suspect that this may be expanded to medium and short haul flights once all the aircraft are upgraded to the same inflight entertainment and communication systems.
