Lufthansa will introduce a premium economy offering on its Airbus SAS fleet of A380 aircraft next year, adding a new class of service.
Premium Economy will be installed on the entire intercontinental fleet. This substantially up-graded Economy product will fill the gap between the superior 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,” believes Lufthansa.
Lufthansa’s premium economy cabin is expected to represent around 10% of the total seating on each aircraft.
