In an article published on Bloomberg.com, Lufthansa has updated information about the rollout of it’s new Business Class on long haul aircraft. The information was first published in an employee newsletter.
It appears that the long haul fleet will be fully converted in 4 years. The conversions will begin within a year but will already be present in the new 747-8i that will be delivered soon.
It looks like the seats will require more room and economy seats will be removed to make room for the larger business class seat units. The color scheme will also change to reflect warmer colors. The blue and silver theme will go away with the conversions.
According to a Lufthansa spokesman, full details on the new Business Class product will be provided in March.
