German airline Lufthansa is expanding its product portfolio and will equip its entire Lufthansa fleet with a Premium Economy cabin, with development expected to take two years.
The Supervisory Board has approved the investment capital for the introductory project to achieve this. At the beginning of next year, a project group will be formed to manage the introduction and define the precise features of the product as well as a detailed timetable. The Premium Economy cabin will be installed on the entire intercontinental fleet.
This substantially upgraded Economy product will fill the gap between the Business Class segment, which features a seat that can be converted into a fully flat bed, on one side and the classic Economy Class on the other. This will appeal to both leisure travellers seeking additional comfort, and business travellers, said the airline.
