Lufthansa first class fitted across Munich fleet

27 Feb 2015 by GrahamSmith

Lufthansa has completed fitting its new first class cabin onto all its long-haul aircraft based at Munich airport.

The German carrier said that this winter a total of 24 A340-600 and A330-300 aircraft will fly to 22 international destinations from Munich.

The airline will now retrofit its new first and business classes onto the remainder of its long-haul fleet (not based in Munich).

And, by the end of this year, all Lufthansa long-haul aircraft will feature its new premium economy cabin.

The new first class cabin contains eight fully-flat seats that are 2.07 metres long and 80cm wide. The new business seat measures 1.98 metres in length.

Lufthansa board member Thomas Kluhr said: "Lufthansa has thus taken another major step towards its goal of becoming the first five-star airline in the western hemisphere."

Earlier this week, Lufthansa announced it had started flying a B747-8, featuring its new premium economy class, between Frankfurt and New York Newark (see news, February 23).
