Lufthansa takes First Class to new heights with “Suite Plus” private cabins

Lufthansa expands its Premium First Class offer with the “Suite Plus”, a separate double cabin with high walls up to the ceiling and a fully closing door, a large table and two wide seats which can be combined into a comfortable double bed if required . With this flying private room, Lufthansa sets a new standard of comfort and individuality in its most sophisticated travel class.

The functionality of the First Class suite is unrivaled anywhere in the world: guests can heat or cool their almost one meter wide seats in the suite according to their personal needs and connect their own mobile device to the entertainment system. Ample storage space is provided by an en-suite wardrobe so travelers can change comfortably and have all their personal belongings close at hand.

A service at the highest level also awaits you: The crew serves the gastronomic menu at the time requested by the guests. The meal can be enjoyed in the private suites at the large restaurant-like First Class table.

“Lufthansa Allegris”

First class will be introduced in 2024, on newly delivered Airbus A350s as part of “Lufthansa Allegris”, the airline’s new long-haul product. In the process, the company is improving the overall travel experience for customers in all travel classes: Economy, Premium Economy, Business and First Class. “Allegris” is part of the largest product and service overhaul in the history of the Lufthansa Group, with a total investment of 2.5 billion euros by 2025.

“Each guest has their own understanding of premium, which is why we focus on maximum individuality and exclusivity. The First Class Suite Plus conveys the feeling of intimacy and individuality similar to a hotel room – only at an altitude of eleven kilometers,” explained Jens Ritter, CEO of Lufthansa Airlines at the launch of the “First Class Suite Plus” on February 28 in Berlin. . “The Allegris range promises individuality, exclusivity and premium service while along the chain of travel.”

Business class: more flexible than ever

For the first time, Lufthansa Business Class customers can also enjoy their own suite, which offers even more comfort and privacy thanks to chest-high walls and sliding doors. Here, front-row travelers can enjoy extensive personal space, up to a 27-inch screen and ample storage space. Each suite also has its own wardrobe and personal minibar. Inside, it is possible to connect the two suites so that business class customers traveling together can enjoy great privacy.

With “Allegris”, the freedom of choice for Business Class customers has never been greater. Travelers can choose between six additional seating options, depending on whether they want an extra-long 2.20 meter bed, extra space and workspace, a seat with a baby cradle or just an exclusive seat directly near from the window. A double seat, in which the center console can be retracted to transform it into a sleeping surface for two, is also available.

High seat walls and generous shoulder room provide greater privacy in all options. The seats can be converted into a bed at least two meters long and also offer high definition (4K) screens, generously sized dining tables, wireless charging, noise canceling headphones and Bluetooth connectivity. All seats are also equipped with a heating and cooling system, giving business class travelers the ability to set their own temperature. For a more comfortable side sleeper, the seats also feature a shoulder dip, allowing the shoulder to sink into the seat, increasing sleeping comfort for side sleepers. A tablet-sized control unit provides access to all seating, lighting, heating/air conditioning and entertainment functions. Naturally, each seat is directly accessible from the aisle.

Premium Economy and Economy: more space, more choice

The new Premium Economy Class was already introduced at SWISS in spring 2022. The “Allegris” seat offers more legroom, a folding legrest and can be moved even further back than the current model. Because it will be built into a hard shell, however, adjusting it will have no effect on other passengers in the row behind. The table and the monitor always remain in place. For added comfort, Premium Economy class passengers will also receive a travel kit made of sustainable materials.

With the new “Allegris” product generation, Lufthansa also offers its customers a significantly wider choice in economy class. In the future, travelers will have the option of reserving additional seats in the front rows that offer more legroom, or a free seat next to them.

“Allegris” brings a new aircraft to Lufthansa

With “Allegris”, more than 80 brand new Lufthansa aircraft, such as Boeing 787-9s, Airbus A350s and Boeing 777-9s, will fly to destinations around the world. Aircraft already in service with Lufthansa, such as the Boeing 747-8, will also be modernized. The simultaneous improvement of the travel experience in all classes and the replacement of more than 27,000 seats are unique in the history of Lufthansa. In this way, the company highlights its clear premium and quality requirement. By 2025, the Lufthansa Group will invest a total of 2.5 billion euros in products and services.

Part of a sustainable overall concept

At the same time, the Lufthansa Group is in the midst of the largest fleet modernization in its history. By 2030, more than 200 new short and long-haul aircraft must be delivered to the Group’s airlines. This will allow the Lufthansa Group to significantly reduce the average CO2 emissions of its fleet. The ultra-modern “Dreamliner” long-haul aircraft, for example, will consume an average of only about 2.5 liters of kerosene per passenger and 100 kilometers of flight distance, which is up to 30% less than the previous model.

The developers have also focused on sustainability aspects in the development of the “Allegris” product. Recyclable materials were used for all 27,000 seats, as well as for blankets, cushions and covers.

The Lufthansa Group has set itself ambitious targets for climate protection and aims to achieve a neutral CO₂ balance by 2050. Already by 2030, the aviation group wants to halve its net CO₂ emissions, compared to 2019, thanks to reduction and compensation measures. The reduction roadmap until 2030 was validated in 2022 by the independent Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi).
