Lufthansa reveals new Premium Economy Class, now available for booking!

By Fareboom Staff, Thu, May 22, 2014

This week, Europe's largest airline unveiled its new Premium Economy Class, which promises to bring the luxury of Business class to Economy class. The seats, now available for booking, will be available from November 2014, initially on the Boeing 747-8.

The average price for a return flight across the North Atlantic will cost an additional EUR 600 on average, which brings the ticket prices closer to Economy Class than the Business Class, but offers considerably more comfort.  The new seats are spacious up to 3 centimeters wider than the normal Economy Class seats and offer up to 50% more space and there are plenty of other perks such as a bottle holder, an electrical socket and lots of storage space for passengers’ belongings.



As Jens Bischof, CCO & Member of the Lufthansa German Airlines Board in charge of Sales, Product and Marketing explained, with Premium Economy Class Lufthansa aims to create a completely new travel experience that combines affordability with greater comfort.


The benefits of the new Premium Economy Class:

  • Double free baggage allowance: two bags per person, each weighing up to 23 kg 

  • A welcome drink, a water bottle at every seat and a high-quality amenity kit with many useful accessories providing additional refreshment 

  • The high quality meals are presented in menus and are served on china tableware 

  • An 11- or 12-inch touch screen monitor, a handset to control the in-flight entertainment and a generous range of magazines provide for even more entertainment 

  • More storage space for personal belongings 

  • Central console between the seats with sturdy table and power outlet at every seat – well suited for work on board

  • All seats in Premium Economy Class are not more than one seat away from the aisle 

  • Access to Lufthansa Business Lounges available (for a fee of EUR 25)
