Lufthansa has unveiled the concept for its brand-new Business Class.
The new Business Class cabin will be available on regular routes for the first time in 2020, with the roll-out scheduled to commence with Boeing 777-9 aircraft.
The new seat was developed with the goal of facilitating the best and soundest sleep up above the clouds. The seats extend to a bed measuring up to 220 cm (86.6 inches) and the construction of the back rest makes it possible for the shoulder to sink in when lying on your side. This design feature keeps the spine straight and makes it possible for side sleepers to also benefit from a relaxing sleep.
“The new, ultra-modern Lufthansa Business Class creates a new global benchmark. It offers our passengers a unique travel experience,” said Harry Hohmeister, Member of the Executive Board of Deutsche Lufthansa AG. “We have consistently and continuously refined our range of premium products for our guests and modernized Lufthansa. Our focus is and has always been on the wishes of our customers and their specific needs. We want to provide them with the perfect travel experience. The new Business Class showcases the full innovative capacity of Lufthansa.”
All passengers in the new Business class will have direct access to the aisle. This is made possible by a 1-2-1 and 1-1-1 seat configuration. The new seats also provide customers with a significantly increased amount of personal space, more privacy, as well as generous storage compartments and flat surfaces.
Depending on their personal needs, passengers can choose between a number of spatial configurations. For instance, they can choose to have an extended-length bed or a seat with twice as much desk space.
Thanks to new digital interfaces, all the functions of the seat as well as the in-flight entertainment system can be controlled using the passenger’s personal device. Smartphones and tablets can be recharged at the seat using wireless technology. And in the future, anyone who wants to watch one of the movies from the extensive entertainment program will experience the blockbusters on much larger screens, in full HD.
There will already be some innovations in the existing Business Class in the upcoming year that will significantly improve the comfort level for passengers. Mattresses that have been developed exclusively for Lufthansa will be provided on long intercontinental flights as of early 2018.
request, passengers will also be provided with sleeping sweaters.
So far, these have only been available in First Class. Lufthansa
will also be offering its Business Class passengers with new blankets
that are lined, but still light, and keep passengers warm.
