We now have new details about the new Lufthansa First Class coming to select Airbus A350 jets in 2024. It will be exclusive. It will be beautiful. And Lufthansa will include a “First Class Suite Plus” that offers spacious accommodations for up to two guests.
New Lufthansa A350 “First Class Suite Plus” Will Include Double Bed In Center Suite
Beyond a pair of pictures, Lufthansa has not revealed many details about its new first class product set to debut onboard the Airbus A350-900 in 2024 as part of Lufthansa’s new “Allegris” premium cabin refresh.
But today Lufthansa revealed more details about its new first class, including the introduction of a new “First Class Suite Plus” that will offer an even more exclusive first class experience.
The (one meter) wide suite will be flanked by individual suites on either side. The A350 will feature only four suites (three if you you count the First Class Suite Plus as a single suite). Each will feature:
- floor-to-ceiling walls
- closing doors
- large tray tables
- wide screens
- individual thermostats
Lufthansa CEO Jens Ritter likened it to a hotel room, explaining:
“Every guest has their own understanding of premium, which is why we focus on maximum individuality and exclusivity. The First Class Suite Plus conveys the feeling of privacy and individuality similar to a hotel room – only at an altitude of eleven kilometers.”
It looks amazing!
Award Space Implications
It almost goes without saying that with only three (or maybe four) seats on the aircraft, first class partner awards will likely be extremely difficult to obtain, if available at all. In that sense, enjoy the “old” first class on the 747-8, A380, or A340 while you still can. The good news (if you want to call it that) is that there is no indication that these aircraft will be updated (certainly the older Airbus widebodies will not) with the new first class, so there is a decent chance that it will still be possible to score first class award seats with the older product. And of course, at this point, it is all speculation.
Lufthansa has unveiled more details about its new first class product including a previously-unannounced First Class Suite Plus. The new product will debut on the A350 in 2024 and will usher in a whole new era for the first class experience on Lufthansa.
