Lufthansa plans long-haul upgrades

Lufthansa is introducing a new premium product on long-haul routes under the name Allegris in all cabins.

Allegris has been developed exclusively for the Lufthansa Group and for the first time brings spacious suites to the airline’s First class cabin. The suites will offer nearly ceiling-high walls that can be closed for privacy, and a seat which is almost one metre wide. Dining can be restaurant style with a companion and the seat then converts into a large, comfortable bed. All seats and beds are positioned in the direction of flight and include a large, personal wardrobe.

Suite passengers will receive gourmet menus, caviar service, pyjamas and Bluetooth wireless headphones for entertainment on screens that extend across the full width of the suit.

The full reveal will come early next year but Carsten Spohr, Chairman of the Executive Board and CEO of Deutsche Lufthansa AG, said: “We want to set new, unprecedented standards for our guests. The largest investment in premium products in our company’s history underpins our claim to continue to be the leading Western premium airline in the future.”

In Business, Allegris will bring more privacy too. All will have direct aisle access, 17-inch entertainment screen and seats that convert to a two-metre long bed. While in Economy a previously trialled Sleeper’s Row will be rolled out on all new long-haul aircraft. In the Sleeper’s Row 2.0 a leg rest folds away and an additional mattress is offered for a reclining surface that is 40% bigger than that trialled.

Economy Class passengers will also have the option of booking a vacant
neighbour seat.
