With the introduction of Premium Economy Class Lufthansa is offering a new travel experience on long-haul routes – in comparison to Economy Class, passengers will enjoy significantly more comfort. This new class will also meet the wishes of many business travellers.
Experience it now
From now on pasengers can experience the comfort of the new Premium Economy Class on more and more Lufthansa long-haul flights. You can already book the new travel experience on all Lufthansa long-haul routes. A current route overview can be found here.
Our fleet of Boeing 747-8s will be the first to fly with Premium Economy Class, to the following destinations from Frankfurt: Beijing, Bengaluru, Buenos Aires, Chicago, Hong Kong, Los Angeles, Mexico City, Mumbai, São Paulo, Seoul and Washington, D.C. From the end of January 2015 the first retrofitted aircraft in the A340-600 fleet will start flying between Munich and Hong Kong, Shanghai and Tokyo. Then from the end of April, the A380 fleet will begin flying between Frankfurt and Houston, Johannesburg, Miami, New York, San Francisco, Shanghai and Singapore.* Premium Economy Class will be available on the entire Lufthansa long-haul fleet by late summer 2015.
More personal space
Thanks to the new, specially developed seat, passengers in Premium Economy Class will enjoy up to 50 per cent more space. Leg-rests with integrated footrests in the front row of seats and adjustable footrests from the second row onwards as well as separate armrests on both sides provide additional comfort.
More services, more extras
In addition, passengers will enjoy numerous other benefits that will make their journey even more enjoyable: two bags each up to 23 kg – and therefore double the free baggage allowance than in Economy Class**, meals served on china tableware, a welcome drink to greet them on board, a larger, 11- or 12-inch touchscreen monitor, an amenity kit with useful travel accessories and a bottle of water at every seat. For a fee, passengers may also use the Lufthansa Business Lounges and the Welcome Lounge on arrival at Frankfurt.
An attractive alternative to Economy Class
Those business travellers in particular whose company travel policies prohibit Business Class flights, will come to appreciate the new Lufthansa Premium Economy Class. They will be able to travel in greater comfort, can use their time to work efficiently and will arrive rested at their destination.
Of course, all PartnerPlusBenefit members will also have the option of earning and redeeming BenefitPoints in Premium Economy Class.
For customers with an existing booking in Economy Class, there are a variety of short-notice upgrade opportunities available.
