Lufthansa Airways will offer 7 feet business class seats for corporate travellers

Published on : Tuesday, November 28, 2017

Lufthansa Airways Deutsche Lufthansa AG is going to launch the business class seats that stretch to 2.2 meters (7 feet) in new Boeing Co. 777 jets, with an aim to boost the corporate appeal of a carrier that has only recently embraced flat-bed berths.




When this service will launch, the corporate passengers will be able to decide between six different setups in the business cabin, including a paired layout, a highly advanced-privacy variant along with the luxurious amenities.




It also offers slightly less sleep room while featuring more storage and work space that will make comfortable. All but the extra-long berth will measure a standard 6 feet 6 inches.




In the world of aviation industry, Lufthansa Airlines came late to the flat-bed revolution, rolling the seats out in business class only in 2013, more than a decade after pioneer British Airways.

The multi-option business berth set to launch on the new 777-9 fleet from 2020 should help the carrier enhance its credentials as an innovator as it seeks to become the first in Europe awarded five stars by the Skytrax ratings service.




All of the seats will also have straight aisle access, overcoming the need for some premium passengers to scramble past others, a requirement many airlines have already eradicated.




Lufthansa will accommodate around 45 to 60 business passengers, but feature no first-class cabin.




The 747-400s and Airbus A340-600s that the jets are due to replace do have the top-end product, though it has already been dropped from an A350 fleet partway through delivery.




The new versions of the popular 777 model will be the aviation industry’s largest-ever twin-engine jetliners, with the top-of-the-range -9 variant being the priciest civil model on offer from Boeing.




ANA Holdings Inc., Cathay Pacific Airways Plc, Emirates, Etihad Airways PJSC, Qatar Airways and Singapore Airlines Ltd. have also ordered the plane, giving an order book of 326.
