Lufthansa Unveils New Business-Class Seats and Cabin
The new cabin design, which replaces the almost ten-year-old PrivateBed seat, reclines a full 180° and expands to a 1.98-meter long bed. All seats are forward facing, which addresses a key request from passengers, namely the wish to sit and face the direction of travel.
The new seats will be installed in a V-like configuration on the 747-800 where, on the upper deck, they will be in a 2-2 configuration. Each pair of seats is angled towards the other in the shape of a “V,” joined together by a somewhat V-shaped table.
In some aircraft, the seats will be parallel but they will be angled towards the outer cabin wall.
The new business-class cabin also features a 15.4” display at each seat. Other details have not yet been released.
