Lufthansa Group Airlines has launched a group wide Business Class fare sale for travel to the USA from Zurich, Vienna, and Rome.
Fares are amazing. You can fly to the East Coast for only $1600. The same goes for most midwest destinations as well. Surprisingly, you can fly from Vienna or Rome to the West Coast for only $1400!!!
The fare is valid for travel on all LH Group airlines (yes, including Brussels), as well as on United and Air Canada. The fare seems to cover travel dates until year end. I did notice however there are a few pockets where the fares are valid for travel on Thursdays-Sundays, mostly on Vienna flights to the East Coast.
The fares book into deep discount ‘P’ class and require either a 6 night stay, or just a Saturday night stay, making this a very attractive deal. I’m not sure when the sale will end, it may be a very temporary 24 hour ‘Flash’ offer.
As we get closer to the introduction of the 777X to the Lufthansa fleet, rumors are starting to fly around regarding what the cabin might look like, especially Business Class.
Buzz has been building, and it looks as though a familiar name will be behind the new Lufthansa seat.
Germany’s Recaro, which has been used by Lufthansa on a regular basis, appears to be the manufacturer of the new seat. Specifically, it looks as though Recaro’s CL6710 model will be adapted to fit Lufthansa’s needs. This new seat will debut in 2018, and could likely be what is installed on Lufthansa, SWISS, Austrian, and Brussels aircraft. Lufthansa Group made the announcement a while back that identical next generation Business Class seats will be installed on long-haul aircraft group wide.
Recaro advertises the seat as the next generation in Business Class comfort, providing passengers increased comfort and amenities as compared to current iterations of Business Class seats. One major feature will be the ability for a passenger to use their smart phone to control all aspects of the seat. Hopefully, an electronics ban at that point won’t include even the modest cell phone!
Here are a few images as provided by Recaro showing off the new seat. The seat will actually debut with TAP at some point next year.
I’m excited about the prospect that the 777x might be a 1 – 2 – 1 layout in Business Class (at least based on this seat design), which would be fantastic!
