Lufthansa has this week announced plans to upgrade the cabins on its short-haul & medium-haul routes in the network.
It is understood that in Spring 2025, work will begin on applying these upgrades to 38 Airbus A320s in its fleet.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
Lufthansa To Upgrade Cabins on Short/Medium-Haul Jets…
- More space for carry-on luggage: Large overhead bins can hold up to twice as many carry-on suitcases or bags as the current “bins”, because the items of luggage can now be stowed vertically and much more quickly and conveniently in the compartments, which are 40 percent larger.
- USB port: Lufthansa installs a dedicated USB port in each seat, which can be used to charge mobile devices.
- Tablet/smartphone holder: For the first time, Lufthansa is equipping all seats with a special holder for tablets and smartphones. Guests can thus watch movies and series much more comfortably on their own devices without having to hold the devices in their hands or put them down on the folding table.
- More legroom: The new seats from the Italian manufacturer Geven also offer more legroom with the same seat spacing thanks to the ergonomic shaping of the backrests.
Such amendments will no doubt be part of Lufthansa’s aim to ensure that they can provide the best passenger experience on these routes, with all eyes on them in 2025 to see how these upgrades are received by their flying customers.
