Lufthansa investing 170M Euros in cabin revamp

Jan 03, 2011

Lufthansa is installing some 32,000 new seats on more than 180 aircraft in its short- and medium-haul fleet – within the space of a year.

According to officials, this will create a new travel experience and ensure greater passenger comfort thanks to new ergonomically shaped seats featuring a slim backrest that gives passengers almost two extra inches of legroom.

As part of the new inflight service concept, passengers travelling in Economy Class will again be offered snacks such as muesli bars and chocolate, even on domestic routes.

As the newly designed Recaro seats take up less room than the previous seats, up to two additional rows of seats can be installed on each aircraft.

Lufthansa will thus be able to offer about 2,000 additional seats, which is equivalent to the capacity of 12 Airbus A320s. The new seat is also a real bonus from an ecological point of view. Thanks to the materials used and the seat’s innovative structure, each row of seats is almost 30 pounds lighter than the previous seat rows.

Lufthansa is investing about 170 million Euros in its new cabin as part of a comprehensive program to revamp the airline’s inflight product.
