New Lufthansa Business-Class Seats Will Offer You a Choice of a Bed or Big Desk
Get some shut-eye or maintain your hustle from miles in the air.
Lufthansa has unveiled the concept for its brand-new Business Class. It will be available on regular routes for the first time in 2020, with the roll-out of the Boeing 777-9. Lie-flat beds will be available up to 7 feet 2 inches and the construction of the back rest makes it possible for the shoulder to sink in when you are lying on your side. This new business class was developed exclusively for the German premium airline together with Lufthansa’s customers.
“The new, ultra-modern Lufthansa Business Class creates a new global benchmark. It offers our passengers a unique travel experience,” says 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.”
The cabin in the new Boeing 777-9 is also wider than previous cabins, this allows a configuration of seats that will allow all passengers in business class to have access to the aisle. 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 your needs, you can choose between a number of configurations. Such as, you can choose to have an extended-length bed or a seat with twice as much desk space.
The new Business Class will also be setting standards from a technological point of view. Thanks to 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.
