Inside The New Elegant & Flexible Lufthansa Allegris Airbus A350 Cabins

Lufthansa is launching a new travel experience called “Lufthansa Allegris” for its long-haul routes, offering enhanced products across all classes—Economy, Premium Economy, Business, and First Class. The venture includes introducing First Class in the Airbus A350s starting in 2024. This initiative, representing the largest product and service upgrade in Lufthansa Group’s history, involves an investment of 2.5 billion euros by 2025, aiming to elevate customer travel experiences.

Lufthansa’s New Airbus A350 First Class Suite

Lufthansa is enhancing its First Class service by introducing the “Suite Plus,” which features a private double cabin with high walls, a lockable door, a large table, and two wide seats that convert into a double bed. This upgrade aims to elevate the standard of luxury and privacy.

The First Class Suite offers unmatched features, including temperature-adjustable seats nearly one meter wide, connectivity for personal mobile devices to the entertainment system, and a suite wardrobe providing ample storage space for travelers to change comfortably and keep their belongings close.

Service at the highest level also awaits: The crew serves the gourmet menu at a time requested by the guests. The meal can be enjoyed in the private suites at the large First Class table, similar to a restaurant.
