Lufthansa reveals first secrets of its new business class

Lufthansa has revealed one of its best-kept secrets and 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, the company said.

The new seat is the key element of the service and comfort level in the cabin, which have been improved even further. It was developed with the goal of facilitating the best and soundest sleep up above the clouds. Lufthansa guests can not only look forward to beds with a length up to 220 cm (86.6 inches); the comfort and convenience of the seat also ensure heavenly dreams: the construction of the back rest makes it possible for the shoulder to sink in when you are lying on your side. This keeps the spine straight and makes it possible for side sleepers to also benefit from ideally healthy and relaxing sleep.

The brand-new Business Class seat was developed exclusively for the German premium airline together with Lufthansa´s customers. Over 500 guests provided in-depth support during the development phases. Privacy and an optimum of comfort for sleeping are two of the most important needs of passengers on international routes — both are handled perfectly with the new Business Class concept.

There will already be some innovations in the existing Business Class in the upcoming year that will significantly improve the comfort level for passengers. Mattresses that have been developed exclusively for Lufthansa will be provided on long intercontinental flights as of early 2018. They will ensure pleasant sleep on board. On request, passengers will also be provided with sleeping sweaters. So far, these have only been available in First Class. Lufthansa will also be offering its Business Class passengers new blankets. They are lined, but still light, and will keep the passengers warm at night.
