Lufthansa’s rollout of their new Premium Economy class is moving along ahead of schedule. According to LH, their 747-8i fleet will be completely retrofitted with Premium Economy on November 22, 9 days ahead of their previous commitment.
This means that passengers flying to Chicago, Hong Kong, Buenos Aires, Bangalore, Los Angeles, Peking, Mexico City, Washington DC and Tokyo Haneda will have the option of booking a Premium Economy seat a bit sooner than expected.
To celebrate the launch of the new cabin, Lufthansa is currently offering a 15% discount on ANY Premium Economy Booking made through December 9, 2014. This offer brings the price of Premium Economy Seat within only a few hundred dollars of even the lowest Economy class fare, making it a compelling proposition to sample the product!
The rest of fleet’s retrofit is going according to schedule and each long haul aircraft should have Premium Economy in place by the end of Summer 2015.
