Lufthansa has completed fitting its new first class cabin onto all its long-haul aircraft based at Munich airport.
The airline will now retrofit its new first and business classes onto the remainder of its long-haul fleet (not based in Munich).
Lufthansa’s new first class cabin
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).
