Fly Lufthansa Business Class from Dallas to Frankfurt for 70k Miles

We got tasked with finding the best experience in the air with our home airport of DFW, Dallas Forth Worth. So we started searching for all the best Business Class products that originate in DFW and (most likely) fly Internationally. The international carriers almost always have a better Business and First Class product than our American counterparts, and lucky for us we scored a 70k flight on Lufthansa in Business Class to Frankfurt.
