Lufthansa revamps Boeing 747 cabin
Ten Lufthansa Boeing 747-400s will be completely revamped from April to November of this year, thereby ensuring a quieter and more exclusive atmosphere in the new First Class.
In future, the First Class cabin in the Boeing 747-400 fleet will only have eight seats. Passengers in Business and Economy Class can also look forward to a completely refurbished cabin interior.
Lufthansa is entering new territory with its seating concept for the Boeing 747-400. The window seats will be converted into full-length, lie-flat beds with a sleeping surface measuring over two metres in length and a top-quality mattress, guaranteeing first-class sleeping comfort. Each passenger in the new First Class cabin will thus not only have a seat but also a separate bed.
Sound-absorbing curtains and sound-deadening insulation beneath the carpet will ensure that passengers enjoy the necessary peace and quiet. The individual inflight entertainment programme on the new, 17-inch monitors will also provide relaxation.
As a hallmark of Lufthansa's First Class service, top-of-the-range materials such as matt-brushed metal and scarred leather have been used throughout the cabin. Besides the interior design and fittings, the First Class standard includes comfort items such as temperature-regulating blankets and pillows and the amenity kit from Porsche Design containing cosmetic articles from La mer.
The Business and Economy Class cabins on the Boeing 747-400 are also being refurbished. The entrance area will be revamped in the latest design, and new lavatories will be installed.
In Economy Class, passengers can already put together their own entertainment programme on their individual monitors. They can choose from a wide range of feature films in as many as eight language versions, popular TV series and fascinating documentaries.
