744 is the most unique.

I have a choice to book first on either the A380, 747-400, and 747-8 all on LH.
You still didn't answer my question. Can you please give me flight numbers?

Not all 747's are the same IINM.

See here http://onemileatatime.boardingarea.com/2014/03/17/review-lufthansa-a330-new-first-class-seattle-frankfurt/

The 747-400 features a seat and bed combination. VS the other aircraft's feature a very nice and spacious seat which of course becomes a flat bed.

On which dates?

402 does not have the new first class product.

For the win.
Ok, my preference is for the 748 especially if you can get the nose. 747 has a cool factor of the spa bed but it's pretty useless since F almost always has extra empty seats anyway which are more comfortable

Useless? I'd take an actual bed over an "extra empty seat" turned into a bed any day of the week, and I imagine so would most people.

Besides, what happens in a full cabin? Or even a 3/4th full and you're not next to an empty seat? No such problems on the 744.
