Lufthansa is taking its long-haul, inflight experience to the next level with a series of impressive updates that will take to the skies for the first time in 2024.
“Every guest has their own understanding of premium, which is why we focus on maximum individuality and exclusivity,” said Jens Ritter, CEO at Lufthansa.
Here’s what you can expect.
Details of Lufthansa’s “Allegris” Product Generation Revealed
German flag carrier Lufthansa has unveiled more details of its incredible new Allegris products that were first teased in the fall of 2022.
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.
The first aircraft to be fully kitted out with Lufthansa’s Allegris will be its newest Airbus A350s, scheduled to fly passengers for the first time in 2024.
First Class With Game-changing “Suite Plus”
It’s safe to say that Lufthansa left the most exciting part out of its 2022 Allegra teaser: The Suite Plus.
Lufthansa is the latest airline to join the suite trend that has taken off in the airline world over the last few years. However, they’re doing it bigger and better.
Each first class cabin will feature 1 Suite Plus, and with its ceiling high walls and fully-closable door, will provide the ultimate privacy for 2 passengers traveling together.
“The First Class Suite Plus conveys the feeling of privacy and individuality similar to a hotel room — only at an altitude of 11 kilometers,” said Ritter.
In the rest of the cabin, the seat measures roughly 3.25 feet (about 1 meter) and will be surrounded with almost ceiling-height walls that can be fully closed. In fact, the Suite Plus will mark 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.
Those seated in the Suite Plus will no longer have to deal with being too hot or too cold. In an industry first, passengers will be able to control the temperature of their suites individually. That’s hot.
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 2024.
Lufthansa will also be taking connectivity one step further by making it possible for its first class passengers to connect their personal devices to the inflight entertainment system.
The Best Business Class Lufthansa Has Ever Had
Lufthansa’s business class cabins will also feature ultra-private suites featuring a personal minibar.
Similar to the first class suite, the business class versions will feature chest-high walls and fully-closing doors.
The cabins will be arranged in a staggered 1-2-1 and 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.
The seats in the exclusive first row of business class will boast more space, IFE screens of up to 27 inches.
Passengers traveling together who are seated in the middle or the 1-2-1-configured rows will also have the option of connecting their 2 suites for the ultimate in private mile-high experience.
Lufthansa Group’s new premium economy product made its debut on SWISS services to the U.S. in March, 2022.
The seat features a fold-out leg rest that extends further than any of Lufthansa’s other premium economy seats.
The same hard-shell design will also be rolled out on Lufthansa-operated aircraft.
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.
Lufthansa isn’t just returning from the pandemic, it’s bouncing back at full-throttle.
From 2024, Lufthansa passengers will enjoy an increased sense of privacy and luxury across all cabins when flying long haul — especially those flight in the jaw-dropping “Suite Plus”.
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!
