Lufthansa is taking off into a new era

Its Evolution not revolution:

Lufthansa has been awarded the coveted ‘5-Star’ certificate by Skytrax and is now one of the world’s 10 best airlines!

As Europe’s only 5-Star Airline, Lufthansa constantly strives to set new standards. Color, crane, font: For the first time in 30 years, Lufthansa is giving itself a new look. To accompany its outstanding products and services, the company now presents a new visual identity with a modernized and enhanced design.

For Lufthansa, this renowned award is a delight, but also an incentive to do everything it can in future to live up to the high expectations that travellers should have of a premium airline.


Passengers who fly Lufthansa First Class know they can expect perfect 5-star service from booking to landing!

An oasis of relaxation – that’s Lufthansa First Class in a nutshell. Not just because the cabins have special soundproofing to minimize sound, or because the luxurious seats fold out into a comfortable bed and the screens are equipped with advanced ­hardware and software. At ­Lufthansa, 5-star comfort also means that each passenger enjoys individual service and assistance from the moment they arrive at the airport. In Frankfurt, a limousine service welcomes passengers at the dedicated First Class Terminal. Personal assistants are on hand to get passengers swiftly through all security checks, and passengers are entitled to use the exclusive Lufthansa Lounges all around the world. This unique level of service is embodied in the iconic red rose each guest receives to welcome them on board.

8 SEATS is the maximum number in First Class to ensure complete privacy and ample legroom.


Lufthansa’s new Business Class now features flying beds – to ensure passengers arrive perfectly rested at their destination.

Preferential check-in and priority boarding: These are some of the benefits that make travelling in Business Class a pleasure from the word go. Lufthansa is continually working to improve its products and services: The introduction of the Boeing 777-9X will see the launch of a brand new Business Class that is even more comfortable. All seats will have direct aisle access and can be folded out into a comfortable, ergonomic bed. To make the night even more restful, starting from Spring 2018, passengers on long-haul flights will get pajamas for the night. Business Class passengers receive their menus before takeoff and the meals they select are served on beautifully laid tables. When the dessert is served or a wine glass topped up is entirely up to the passenger.


A new generation of the cabin class with extra comfort is about to launch – making long-haul travel even better 

Lots of personal space, large screens, china tableware – Premium Economy offers details that make all the difference. Passengers who want that little bit more comfort can book this most recently introduced travel class on all long-haul Lufthansa flights. The new class is being continually refined and a new concept is currently in the works. The central element of the new comfort drive is the seat, which already offers passengers up to 50 percent more space than in Economy Class – as well as a more generous and restful angle of inclination. The new generation will be even more comfortable and offer more privacy. The integrated screens will be bigger, enhancing the pleasure of the in-flight entertainment, and passengers also have more space to work on a laptop. Premium Economy passengers will also have a greater baggage allowance with 2 bags weighing up to 23kg.


Lufthansa is a firm believer in never resting on one’s laurels, which is why the airline is refitting and updating its Economy Class cabins for an even better flying experience.

Whether it’s First Class or Economy Class: Lufthansa is constantly working to improve comfort in all travel classes. Lufthansa has already picked a new seat design as part of a campaign to enhance comfort across the entire fleet. The new seat also incorporates suggestions made by passengers and test fliers, a procedure used when designing the Economy cabin for the wide-body jet Boeing 747-8, which features vastly improved seats. The new seats are more contoured, the seat pocket with Lufthansa Magazine has been moved up to head height; there is more legroom and the seat rests have a better ergonomic shape. Also, power sockets were added and there is more storage space for hand luggage, giving the whole cabin a wider and more open appearance.
