A sneak peak into Lufthansa`s 2020 Business Class

FRANKFURT - United Polaris, Delta One Suite, Ethiad Business Studio and Qatar Airways Q-Suite - airlines double down on Business Class revenue with schmick new cabins. Lufthansa will close the comfort gap to competition with introduction of the first Boeing 777-9 widebodies in to its fleet by 2020.

Three years from now Lufthansa passengers will experience an entirely new long haul Business Class. Lufthansa teased the cabin with renderings it shared on Twitter this week. These indicate a layout with direct aisle access from every seat and "throne" seats in the center row.

"A special shoulder zone for side-sleepers and larger monitors" will be part of the new experience that replaces the a little outdated 2-2-2 Business Class configuration Lufthansa introduced 2012. Seat and IFE will interact with an app to customize the flight.

Group-wide retrofit

The 777-9 will kick off a fleet wide cabin refurbishment that will include widebodies at Swiss and Austrian in a move to streamline the product strategy across the group.

Lufthansa mulls a "Business Plus" product to replace First Class on some of the 34 777-9 that will replace Airbus A340-300 and 747-400 widebodies. An updated Premium Economy is also on the Lufthansa agenda for the 2020s and its 777X cabin strategy.
