Lufthansa Introduces New Business Class Cabin Set to Debut on Select North America Routes

by Alice

As the summer travel season approaches, Lufthansa is poised to unveil its brand-new first and business class seats, promising an elevated in-flight experience for passengers.

Commencing May 1, Lufthansa will debut its innovative Allegris premium cabins on specific long-haul routes. The German carrier has confirmed that the maiden voyage featuring the Allegris product will operate between Munich and Vancouver aboard an Airbus A350-900 aircraft.


With additional Airbus A350s slated for delivery to Lufthansa’s fleet in the near future, travelers can anticipate experiencing Allegris luxury on flights from Germany to Toronto, Chicago, and Montreal throughout the summer months.


The inception of the Allegris seat was initially announced in 2017, heralding a sophisticated new era for passengers occupying premium seating. Onboard the Airbus A350, three first-class suites will be available, boasting distinct sleeping and dining quarters, marking Lufthansa’s premiere offering of a double bed option tailored for two passengers.


Commenting on the unveiling of the new cabin, Lufthansa CEO Jens Ritter remarked, “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.”

Moreover, the Allegris business class will feature 38 seats configured in a 1-2-1 layout, providing passengers with direct aisle access and fully closable doors, a substantial enhancement over Lufthansa’s current 2-2-2 configuration.

Lufthansa has outlined plans to extend the rollout of the new seats to various aircraft types, including retrofitting existing Boeing 747 cabins. Additionally, forthcoming deliveries of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner and Boeing 777-9 will incorporate the Allegris seating.

Passengers embarking on the inaugural routes from May 1 will receive notification of their upgraded accommodations in the new cabin, as confirmed by the airline. As Lufthansa progressively integrates Allegris seats across its fleet, travelers will have the ability to ascertain online whether their flight is equipped with the new seats up to three weeks before departure.
