Premium Economy comes to Lufthansa

First announced just 12 months ago Lufthansa has met its targets and added a Premium Economy class throughout its long haul fleet including the A340.

It is impressive particularly with the Airbus A380 where the cabin in the forward lower deck, First Class in many airlines.  You enter via a dedicated air bridge 2-4-2, as against 3-4-3 at the back.  Two washrooms for just 48 passengers.

BTN was amongst the first to try the new product. 

It features a claimed 50% more leg room, one piece table and plenty of foot room.  The seat reclines 7” not impinging on the passenger behind. 

There are many product enhancements over the normal Economy, the most obvious being the ability to check-in free of charge two bags weighing up to 23 kg each and the option to purchase Lufthansa Senator lounge entry.

In-flight meals are served on china tableware and a separate water bottle is provided at every seat.  It is the same as the Economy menu but the fine presentation somehow upgrades the product.  Passengers are greeted on board with a welcome drink.  A amenity bag is provided plus slippers.

Depending on the aircraft 11” or 12” personal screen monitors are provided and also a multi plug electrical point, USB outlet and a plug for your own headset.
