With the 747-8 yet to go into service (see issue 7 May) Lufthansa's Airbus A330-300 registration D-AIKP had the honour of introducing the airline's new Business Class last week with a flight from Munich to Washington.
First unveiled to the public at ITB Berlin in March the new kit offers 48 seats in what the airline calls “J Class”. These can fold flat to create a bed 1.98m long. Travellers are provided with an individual entertainment programme and new, enlarged 15ins monitors. Guests in all classes who wish to go online in flight may do so with FlyNet, the broadband internet service.
Awaiting Lufthansa passengers at the very front of the cabin is the new, exclusive First Class which already flies on the upper deck of the A330’s 'big sister', the Airbus A380. Here, eight guests can enjoy the premium offerings with luxurious easy chairs that transform into the largest, most comfortable bed of its class.
Travellers aboard Lufthansa's Economy Class also enjoy considerable comfort and high standard of service. 161 guests will arrive at their destination relaxed, thanks to the comfortable and modern Lufthansa 'Eco seats' equipped with integrated monitors. www.lufthansa.com
