Boeing 747-8 with new range of services from December
After the presentation of Lufthansa’s new Premium Economy Class at this year’s ITB in Berlin, the travel class can now be booked on flights flown by Boeing 747-8s.
Premium Economy will have guaranteed availability on all flights served by the new aircraft type from December 10. Destinations that can be booked include routes from Frankfurt to and from Buenos Aires, Chicago, Hong Kong, Mexico City, São Paulo, Seoul, Beijing and Washington DC.
From late January 2015, the first retrofitted A340-600 aircraft are scheduled to take off from Munich for Hong Kong, Shanghai and Tokyo. From late April, the A380-800 is planned to then fly from Frankfurt to Johannesburg, New York, Miami, Houston, San Francisco, Shanghai and Singapore. Discounted fares are being offered to launch the new seating, which has “up to 50% more personal space” than Economy among a range of additional services.
