Today Lufthansa has christened one of its A350-900s “Munich”, and at the same time it has revealed some details of its latest long-haul business class product.

Firstly note this aircraft’s registration D-AIVC. I say that because this particular A350-900 comes from Philippine Airlines (PAL) as we reported last year.

What we now know (but did not last year) is that this A350-900 will be operating between Munich and Canada where Lufthansa serves Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver.

As can be seen from the photos it will provide business class passengers with more spacious seating.

This layout is 1-2-1  which compares to the current product’s 2-2-2.

In a statement Lufthansa says this business class offers guests an improved business class with direct aisle access.

The seats can be easily and quickly converted into a two-metre-long bed and offer more storage space.

Says Lufthansa’s CEO Carsten Spohr:

“With a significantly improved business class, this aircraft represents the beginning of one of the largest product modernisations in Lufthansa’s history.”

The airline says that in 2023 it will introduce new products in all four classes: economy, premium economy, business and first class which is something unparalleled in the market.

Originally Lufthansa had intended to debut its new business class when its B777-9s arrived.

But as we reported recently these aircraft are not expected to arrive until 2025.
