New Lufthansa First Class

The new Lufthansa business and first class feels like the longest rollout in airline history but the group has finally revealed the finished product.

Lufthansa Group looks to be standardising its new first and business class across Lufthansa and Swiss with different finishes for the different airlines.

There is no indication yet that Austrian and Brussels will also fly the new product but presumably this will follow the same pattern of the same product with brand-appropriate finishes.

Lufthansa will debut the new seats on factory fresh Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners later this year.

It will then be progressively rolled out to the new Airbus A350s from 2024 and also retrofitted to their existing widebody fleet of 747-8s, 787s and A350s before being seen on the much delayed Boeing 777-9.

The new Allegris seats in business class offer different variations including four super suites at the front of the cabin that Lufthansa are calling the “Business Class Suite.”

Boasting significantly more room than the standard business class, each Business Class Suite features a 2.2m flatbed, higher walls with sliding doors, personal wardrobe and small minibar, along with a larger 27” video screen.

Common to all Allegris business class seats will be direct aisle access, Bluetooth audio connectivity to the 17-inch screen, wireless charging, a minimum 2m long bed, individual seat heating and cooling settings, and a ‘shoulder sink-in’ to boost comfort for for side sleepers.

Passengers will control the features of the seat, along with the inflight entertainment system, through a tablet mounted next to the seat.

Business Class Suites come with a 17-inch screen as standard.

Each seat has warming panels built into the cushions, similar to a car’s heated seats, while cool air can be circulated from underneath the seat as well as from a vent mounted on the seat wall.

Lufthansa’s Boeing 787-9 business class will see 28 seats including four suites, while the Airbus A350 will have 38 business class seats split across two cabins, delivering eight suites.

Swiss has also released details of their iteration of the new Lufthansa Group business class and it arguably looks even better.

The new Swiss first and business class seats will launch in 2025 on a fleet of Airbus A350 jets, along with refurbished Airbus A330s and, at a later stage, Boeing 777s.

The new and refurbished jets will also feature an updated premium economy product.

The Lufthansa Groups’ new first class will debut of those new Airbus A350s in 2024.

Lufthansa and Swiss will be introducing suites in first class, offering ceiling-high walls and closable doors.

All suites will be forward facing, and there will be just one row of first class seats on the A350 (this includes three suites that can seat up to four people).

Lufthansa’s new first class suites will feature a variety of amenities, including:

  • A large dining table and buddy seat, so that passengers can dine together
  • Entertainment screens that extend across the full width of the suite
  • Bluetooth connectivity for wireless headphones
  • A personal wardrobe for storing your belongings

The Swiss version of the new first class will debut in 2025.
