One of the best-kept secrets in the history of airlines has been revealed!
Well, maybe not one of the best secrets, but a pretty exciting one nonetheless.
Lufthansa’s new Business Class will be available on regular routes for the first time in 2020 with the roll-out of the Boeing 777-9, so start booking those plane tickets, people.
If you’re too poor for Business Class (like us) let us describe it for you.
One of the key features of the luxe class is it’s seat, and boy it’s a good one.
It was developed with the goal of facilitating the best and soundest sleep up above the clouds – and not only can you look forward to beds with a length up to 220 cm, the construction of the back rest makes it possible for the shoulder to sink in when you are lying on your side. They don’t even have that on regular beds.
The brand-new Business Class seat was developed exclusively for the German premium airline together with it’s customers.
Over 500 guests provided in-depth support during the development phases – so this seat is designed for customers, by customers.
Privacy and an optimum of comfort for sleeping are two of the most important needs on international routes – and both needs have been utterly taken care of with the new Business Class concept.
“The new, ultra-modern Lufthansa Business Class creates a new global benchmark. It offers our passengers a unique travel experience,” says Harry Hohmeister, Member of the Executive Board of Deutsche Lufthansa AG.
“We have consistently and continuously refined our range of premium products for our guests and modernized Lufthansa. Our focus is and has always been on the wishes of our customers and their specific needs. We want to provide them with the perfect travel experience.
“The new Business Class showcases the full innovative capacity of Lufthansa.”
Compared to it’s ancient and non-spacious predecessors, the Boeing 777-9 has a considerably wider cabin. In the new Business Class, this space is used to significantly increase the comfort level for passengers.
The new seats also provide a significantly increased amount of personal space, more privacy, plus generous storage compartments and flat surfaces. Depending on your personal needs, you can choose between a number of spatial configurations.
Seriously. This means you can choose to have an extended-length bed or a seat with twice as much desk space.
The new Business Class will also be setting standards from a technological point of view.
All the functions of the seat as well as the in-flight entertainment system can be controlled using your smartphone – which you can recharge at the seat using wireless technology.
And in the future, anyone who wants to watch one of the movies from the extensive entertainment program will experience the blockbusters on much larger screens, in full HD.
Overall, this Business Class is sounding better than real life, TBH.
