Lufthansa plans premium economy


Lufthansa is expanding its product portfolio and will equip the entire Lufthansa long-haul fleet with a Premium Economy. The supervisory board has approved the investment capital for the introductory project to achieve this.

At the beginning of next year, a project group will be formed to manage the introduction and define the precise features of the product, as well as a detailed timetable. Premium Economy will be installed on the entire intercontinental fleet.

This substantially upgraded Economy product will fill the gap between the superior Business Class segment, which features a seat that can be converted into a fully-flat bed on one side, and the classic Economy Class on the other. This will appeal to both leisure travellers seeking additional comfort and business travellers.
