Each month LUFTHANSA updates the status of their Business Class retrofit progress across the long haul fleet. This month’s update confirms that 95 long-haul aircraft now feature the new Business Class cabin. That means that 5 additional aircraft now sport the new Business Class Cabin as compared to the June Update. This leaves only 12 long haul aircraft that need to be retrofitted.
