Lufthansa to debut premium economy in Nov 2014

by Richa 13. December 2013 05:44

Lufthansa, the commercial carrier of Germany is excited about the launch of its premium economy cabins onboard its flights next year. The airline is gearing to debut the new class on its planes in November 2014.

The airline, which operates service as the largest European airline has given a sneak peak into the much talked about premium economy. The airline is set to unveil the new seats in this section at the ITB fair in Berlin in March next year. It then plans to launch these seats on its long haul flights from November onwards. The airline has not yet confirmed the route that will debut this class.

As per the airline, though premium economy seats are a little different from their economy counterparts they will be fitted with the economy class rather than a separate class on its flights. Reports suggest that the airline has ordered these seats from German seat manufacturer ZIM Flugsitz GmbH. The airline has also not confirmed if there is going to be a divider separating economy from premium economy class. These seats will however, be classified as economy seats and will not get benefits like dedicated check-ins. The airline intends to introduce several changes to its planes in the coming two years. Apart from this launch, the airline is also set to introduce fresh First Class. It is also ready to change the seating arrangements on its A340-300 and B747-400 aircrafts into two-class.
