The new Allegris business class is a huge upgrade from Lufthansa’s previous offerings, with guaranteed direct-aisle access for each passenger.
As in first class, passengers will be able to control their own temperature by heating or cooling seats as desired, enjoy new air bed technology for a more comfortable sleeping experience – particularly when lying on the side – as well as upgraded IFE with 4K screens, a personal minibar, and a tablet that will be able to control all the seat functions, lights etc.
There will be seven variations of the business class seat, each offering slightly different features.
On the front row of the cabin will be the business suites – the only business class seat to have a sliding door, and which comes with a taller privacy enclosure. Single suites are located by the window, while the two suites in the centre can be combined into a double suite experience by drawing back the privacy partition for those travelling together.
The rest of the cabin is comprised of “classic business class seats”, with the new Allegris features but minus the sliding door and additional privacy screens; “privacy seats”, which are angled closer to the window and therefore further from the aisle; “extra-space seats”, with more work surface; “extra-long bed” seats, with bed lengths of up to 2.20 metres; “double seats” in the last row of business where the centre seats can be combined; and finally, “rear privacy seats” that also feature a baby bassinet.
