Latest additions to Lufthansa’s fleet in 2022
Although Lufthansa had already announced its new business class products in 2017, COVID-19 delayed the process by several years. In 2022, Lufthansa boosted its long-haul fleet with new Boeing 787 and Airbus A350 airplanes that come with an upgraded business class cabin. One of the main features of these aircraft is the all-aisle access to Lufthansa’s business class seats, which, of course, converts into an almost two-meter-long, fully flat bed.
The new business class cabins offer more space, taller side panels for enhanced privacy, and many other innovations for a better travel experience. For example, the Dreamliner’s windows are the largest that have ever been fitted on an aircraft – you can enjoy a view of the horizon even from the middle row.
Some of the details of these new Lufthansa business classes are partly a reflection of the new business class generation that should be put into place starting in spring 2023.
Revealing Lufthansa’s new generation of business and first class products
In October 2022, Lufthansa announced a new premium product called “Allegris”. According to Carsten Spohr, CEO of Lufthansa, this is the largest investment in premium products in the company’s history. The plan is to have over 100 new Lufthansa aircraft fly long-haul routes globally with the new “Allegris” service.
Travelers flying business or first class will have the opportunity of booking a “suite”. Business class suites are due to be installed in the first row. Lufthansa’s “Allegris” generation business class offers six more seating options with direct access to the aisle from all business class seats. For enhanced privacy, the seat walls will be at least 114 cm high. Business class will feature an in-flight entertainment program on monitors measuring nearly 17 inches. You enjoy wireless charging, noise-canceling headphones, and the possibility of connecting personal devices to the entertainment system via Bluetooth.
