Lufthansa’s new Premium Economy Class is now available for booking on flights flown by
Boeing 747-8 aircraft. From 10th December 2014, the Premium Economy Class will have
guaranteed availability on all flights served by the new jumbo. Destinations that can now
be booked for onward connecting flights from Frankfurt include Buenos Aires, Chicago,
Hong Kong, Mexico City, São Paulo, Seoul, Beijing and Washington DC.
From late January 2015, the first retrofitted A340-600 aircraft are scheduled to take off
from Munich for Hong Kong, Shanghai and Tokyo, and from late April 2015 retrofitted
A380-800 aircraft are planned to fly from Frankfurt to Johannesburg, New York, Miami,
Houston, San Francisco, Shanghai and Singapore.
“We have had an incredible response to our Premium Economy Class since its launch,” said Christian Schindler, Lufthansa General Manager UK & Ireland. “With the attractive introductory fares, this new travel experience is even more within reach, allowing our customers to benefit from up to 50% more personal space.”
