Lufthansa to Offer Premium Economy for Long-Haul Flights

Good news for travelers to Germany: Lufthansa is expanding its product portfolio and will equip the entire Lufthansa long-haul fleet with a Premium Economy class. 

Premium Economy will be installed on the entire intercontinental fleet. This substantially upgraded Economy product will fill the gap between the superior Business Class segment, which features a seat that can be converted into a fully flat bed, on one side and the classic Economy Class on the other. 

The Supervisory Board has approved the investment capital for the introductory project to achieve this. But don't expect the new seats to be available for a while: At the beginning of next year, a project group will be formed to manage the introduction and define the precise features of the product as well as a detailed timetable.
