Lufthansa Unveils Timetable for Premium Economy Roll Out
Lufthansa has announced that its new long-haul premium economy seat will be fitted on its entire long-haul 747-8 fleet by December 10. The new seat, which will be rolled out starting in November, is available to book now on routes from Frankfurt to Buenos Aires, Chicago, Hong Kong, Mexico City, Sao Paulo, Seoul, Beijing and Washington, DC.
Beginning in January next year, the first A340-600 aircraft retrofitted with the premium economy seating will take-off from Munich to Hong Kong, Shanghai and Tokyo. And, starting in late April 2015, the seat will be aboard Lufthansa’s A380-800 aircraft on its routes from Frankfurt to Johannesburg, New York, Miami, Houston, San Francisco, Shanghai and Singapore.
By summer 2015, it will be retrofitted across the airline’s longhaul fleet and on all new deliveries.
The German airline originally unveiled the seat in March at the ITB trade fair in Berlin.
