Lufthansa plans to spruce up its in-flight experience in 2023.
The airline announced it will be putting out a premium product called “Allegris” on all long-haul routes and in all cabin classes.
“We want to set new, unprecedented standards for our guests,” said Carsten Spohr, Chairman of the Executive Board and CEO of Lufthansa. “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.”
Here’s what you can expect.
Lufthansa Unveils Premium Improvements
German flag carrier Lufthansa has today announced a raft of exciting improvements to its long-haul in-flight experience that we can expect to take to the skies sometime in 2023.
The airline’s entire fleet of Airbus A350s, Boeing 777-9s, and Boeing 787-9s will boast the Allegris experience. Even the airline’s long-time workhorse, the Boeing 747-8i, will be retrofitted with new cabins.
More details are set to be released in due course however, this is what we know so far about the improvements of each of the airline’s 4 cabin classes.
Lufthansa is the latest airline to join the suite trend that has taken off in the airline world over the last few years.
The near 1-meter wide seats will be surrounded with almost ceiling-height walls that can be fully closed making these the most private first-class seats that the airline has ever had.
The seat promises to be private enough that guests will not need to leave their suite when changing into or out of Lufthansa’s first-class pajamas.
First class passengers will now be able to dine with their travel companion thanks to a large dining table that each suite will feature. Lovers of Lufthansa’s caviar service will be pleased to know that this will remain.
Hot Tip: Now is a better time than ever to earn yourself as many Lufthansa Miles & More miles as possible if you want to experience the airline’s new-and-improved first class suites which are set to debut in 2023.
Lufthansa’s business class cabins will also feature ultra-private suites.
Similar to the first class suite, the business class versions will feature higher walls and fully-closing doors.
The cabins will be arranged in a staggered 1-2-1/1-1-1 configuration to maximize space and privacy. As a result, the middle seat of the 1-1-1-configured rows will feature Lufthansa’s very own version of the coveted throne-style seat.
Given the new layout, all new business class suites will provide direct aisle access — a vast improvement on the older generation business class seats that the airline still has in operation.
Lufthansa Group’s new premium economy product made its debut on SWISS services to the U.S. in March.
The same hard-shell design will be rolled out on Lufthansa-operated aircraft in 2023.
The “Sleeper’s Row” that was introduced in 2021 is being transformed into the most comfortable economy class offering the airline has ever had.
The so-called “Sleeper’s Row 2.0” will feature on all new aircraft and boast an extendable leg rest, an additional mattress, and up to 40% more recline than the original Sleeper’s Row.
For those who would prefer a little more space and privacy when flying economy, they will soon have the option of booking the seat next to them.
From 2023, Lufthansa passengers will enjoy an increased sense of privacy and luxury across all cabins when flying long haul.
Lufthansa’s raft of cabin upgrades and updates will further cement the airline’s already well-established place in the league of world-class airline experiences.
We cannot wait to experience it for ourselves.
