Lufthansa Makes Upgrades To First- And Business-Class Experience
Lufthansa is giving first-class passengers an ultra-premium flying experience with its new “Allegris” service. The German airline recently announced the next generation of its aircraft. The new design intends to bring added comfort and privacy to passengers on long-haul routes.
Promoting a promise of “premium and quality products”, floor-to-ceiling suites with the ability to close for privacy are part of the new service. First-class seating can be converted into a large bed. In addition, passengers will have access to several storage options including a large, personal wardrobe. Gone are the days of changing clothes in airport bathrooms, as each suite allows space to change on the plane. The added space is fitting for a quick switch into Lufthansa’s first-class pajamas.
A restaurant-style dining table is taking the airline’s meal experience to new heights. First-class passengers can dine in the privacy of their suite at a large dining table while indulging in a gourmet menu and caviar service.
Carsten Spohr, Chairman of the Executive Board and CEO of Deutsche Lufthansa AG, said: “We want to set new, unprecedented standards for our guests. The largest investment in premium products in our company’s history underpins our claim to continue to be the leading Western premium airline in the future.”
Upgrades To Business and Economy Classes
The “Allegris” generation is offering business class passengers more comfort and privacy, with features such as higher walls and sliding doors that completely close. Guests can select from six more seating options based on their desired comfort level. However, all business-class passengers will have direct aisle access and seating that is convertible into a bed.
Wireless charging, Bluetooth connectivity, and noise-canceling headphones for in-flight entertainment are also part of the new business-class experience.
Upgrades to the economy class are also in the works. After the successful launch of its Sleeper’s Row in 2021, Lufthansa plans to introduce Sleeper’s Row 2.0 on the new long-haul aircraft. Featuring an additional mattress, the enhancement offers rest and relaxation on a reclining surface that is 40 percent larger compared to the original version.
Economy class passengers will also have the option of booking a vacant neighbor seat in the future. Quite possibly the best perk of them all.
By 2025, the Lufthansa Group plans to invest 2.5 billion euros in product and service improvements to further its premium customer experience at every stage of the journey. Lufthansa plans to make further announcements about details of the new innovations next spring.
