Lufthansa recently unveiled details of its new Business
Class cabin and seats aboard its new Airbus A380 Superjumbo, and like any new
aircraft and cabin product launch plenty of details to share with you.
However before I get into the details of Lufthansa A380
Business Class cabin and seat need to point out one of the stand out features
that is available in all classes (not just Business and First Class) and that
is the world air humidification system which increases air humidity from the normal
aircraft average of 5% humidity up to 25%. This is sure to be a great feature,
which will ensure passengers feel better on-board and also arrive at their
destination more refreshed than ever before.
Business Class Seat
Located on the upper deck behind first class the new
business class cabin features 98 business class seats configured in a 2-2-2
seating arrangement, each seat measures 67 cm
(26.3 inch) wide and 145-152cm long (57-59.8 inch) long (Seat and Bed
configuration). These numbers look great but there is one catch, the Lufthansa
A380 Business Class Seat does not convert into a true lie-flat bed, in fact the
maxim inclination is only 168° rather than the 180° you get on a lie flat bed.
In-flight Entertainment &
All Lufthansa A380 Business Class Seats are equipped with
the following entertainment options:
- 10.6 inch LCD Screen that has programming in 10 different
languages, and includes
- In-Seat USB Port for charging USB devices such as iPods
- In-flight power compatible with all international
- 30 Current Feature Films
- 20 Video Channels
- 75 TV Series/Documentaries
- 30 Radio Channels
- 200 on-demand music CDs
- 10 multi-player Games
- Niceview Moving Map/Airshow that includes flight information
and video from the aircrafts 3 external cameras
- Satellite Phone in each seat
Armed with only the above details one cannot get the full
feel of how good Business Class on Lufthansa’s A380 is going to be, however
going by the details we have the experience should be very good, especially
with the new air humidification system.
This page will be updated as more information comes to hand,
also expect a flight review very soon. If you would like to know the second
