Lufthansa Group has launched the ‘Allegris’ cabin product for its long-haul fleet, with new premium cabins including suites in first-class and business class for the first time. The new long-haul cabin layout will arrive at the beginning of 2023.
More than 100 new Lufthansa Group aircraft, such as Boeing 787-9s, Airbus A350s and Boeing 777-9s, will be offering the new “Allegris” cabin layout. Additionally, aircraft already in service, including the iconic Boeing 747-8s, will be retrofitted.
Alongside the new premium cabins, economy passengers will also get a new Sleeper’s Row product.
“We want to set new, unprecedented standards for our guests. 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.”Carsten Spohr, Lufthansa Group CEO
First Class Suites
Lufthansa will offer enclosed suites in First Class for the first time. These suites will offer nearly ceiling-high walls that can be closed for privacy, which is a massive improvement over the current product in terms of privacy. Every seat will be nearly 40 inches or almost one meter wide and can be converted into a large, comfortable bed.
In addition, each suite will have its own personal wardrobe, along with other storage. First-class passengers can opt to dine together at a large dining table, whereby one can sit across from their partner or fellow traveller. Lufthansa will also offer Bluetooth connectivity for wireless headphones along with full-width screens for entertainment.
Lufthansa will present details of the suite, as well as further innovation in First Class, at the beginning of next year.
The “Allegris” generation Lufthansa Business Class offers six more seating options. All Business class passengers will have direct aisle access.
Lufthansa Business Class passenger can also look forward to their own suite, which offers even more comfort and privacy due to higher walls and sliding doors that completely close. All seats can be converted into a two-meter-long bed.
Passengers can enjoy the in-flight entertainment program on monitors measuring nearly 17 inches. Wireless charging, noise-cancelling headphones and the ability to connect one’s own devices, such as a PC, tablet, smartphone, or headphones, to the entertainment system, via Bluetooth will provide much-needed entertainment.
Sleeper’s Row 2.0 in Economy Class
Lufthansa will offer new booking options to provide more space and choices in Economy class. Following the launch of the “Sleeper’s Row”, which offered Economy Class passengers to book an entire row of seats on long-distance flights since August 2021, Lufthansa now plans to introduce a “Sleeper’s Row 2.0” on all new long-haul aircraft, as part of the new product generation.
In the “Sleeper’s Row 2.0”, one must simply fold up a leg rest and utilize the additional mattress on offer, for rest and relaxation on a reclining surface that is 40 percent larger compared to the original “Sleeper’s Row”. Alongside, passengers can also book a vacant neighbour seat.
Premium Economy Class
Lufthansa is also introducing a new Premium Economy Class which was already introduced at SWISS in spring 2022. The comfortable premium economy seat is integrated into a hard shell and can be adjusted effortlessly, without affecting fellow passengers in the row behind.
