Customers travelling with Lufthansa Group carrier Austrian Airlines can now opt for premium economy seating on all long-haul services, following the completion of a retrofit programme.
A total of 228 premium economy seats have been fitted across 11 B767 and B777 long-haul aircraft.
On the B777-200ERs there are now a total of 24 premium economy seats across three rows configured 2-4-2 (see first seatplan below), while on the B767-300ERs there are a total of 18 seats – also across three rows but configured 2-2-2 (see second seatplan).
Features of the new seat – which was produced especially for the Lufthansa Group by manufacturer ZIM – include up to 38 inches of legroom, a footrest (second row onwards), a 12-inch TV screen and individual power outlets and USB ports.
Premium economy customers also benefit from two pieces of checked luggage, a choice of three main course dishes served on china dishware, and an amenity kit.
An additional B777-200ER is set to be delivered to Austrian this spring, which will also offer the premium economy seat, making a total of 12 aircraft (six B767s and six B777s).
