Lufthansa Introduces New Business Class Cabin on North America Routes

by Alice

Lufthansa is set to elevate the flying experience with the introduction of its all-new first and business class seats, just in time for the upcoming summer rush.

Commencing May 1, passengers will have the opportunity to experience the first Allegris premium cabins as they take to the skies on select Lufthansa long-haul routes. The German airline has confirmed that its inaugural route featuring the Allegris product will operate between Munich and Vancouver aboard an Airbus A350-900 aircraft.


With additional Airbus A350 deliveries scheduled, travelers can anticipate experiencing Allegris on Lufthansa routes from Germany to Toronto, Chicago, and Montreal throughout the summer season.


Unveiled initially in 2017, the Allegris seat promises a sophisticated new journey for passengers occupying premium seats. Onboard the Airbus A350, three first-class suites will offer separate bed and dining areas, introducing Lufthansa’s inaugural double bed option tailored for two passengers.


Jens Ritter, CEO of Lufthansa, emphasized the airline’s commitment to providing maximum individuality and exclusivity, stating, “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.”

Additionally, the aircraft will feature 38 business class seats arranged in a 1-2-1 configuration. Offering direct aisle access and fully closable doors, the new Allegris business class presents a substantial improvement over Lufthansa’s current setup in a 2-2-2 configuration.

Lufthansa has outlined plans to implement the new seats across various aircraft, including retrofitting existing Boeing 747 cabins. Furthermore, forthcoming deliveries of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner and Boeing 777-9 will also feature these Allegris seats.

Passengers traveling on the initial routes beginning May 1 will receive notifications regarding their upgraded seats in the new cabin, the airline confirmed. As Lufthansa gradually introduces more Allegris seats across its fleet, travelers will have the ability to check online whether their flight offers the new seats three weeks before departure.
