You can now experience the new Premium Economy Class. Our fleet of Boeing 747-8s will be the first to be fitted with the new Premium Economy seats – we expect these aircraft to fly from Frankfurt to the following destinations: Bangalore, Beijing, Buenos Aires, Chicago, Hong Kong, Los Angeles, Mexico City, São Paulo, Seoul, Tokyo and Washington, D.C.

From the end of January 2015 we expect our first Airbus 340-600s with Premium Economy Class on board to take off from Munich to Hong Kong, Shanghai and Tokyo; as well as serving Seoul from 11 February 2015.

From the end of April 2015 the A380s will then probably fly from Frankfurt to Delhi, Houston, Johannesburg, Miami, New York, San Francisco, Shanghai and Singapore. From 12 May 2015 our A340-600 fleet will fly from Munich to Los Angeles, Mexico City, Newark, Beijing, San Francisco and São Paolo.*

We anticipate that you will be able to enjoy the benefits of the new Premium Economy Class on the entire Lufthansa long-haul fleet by late summer 2015*.


The benefits of the new Premium Economy Class:

More baggage

You can check in two bags, each weighing up to 23 kg, free of charge – and therefore enjoy double the free baggage allowance you have in Economy Class.**

More to look forward to

You will be greeted on board with a welcome drink.


More personal space

Look forward to spacious and comfortable seating with up to 50% more space: the specially developed seat with its own armrest, fold-out table, adjustable backrest and footrest offers more comfort and more legroom. You will never sit more than one seat away from the aisle.

More entertainment

Experience our extensive in-flight entertainment programme on an 11- or 12-inch monitor built into the seat in front. The programme is operated by a remote control. There is also a power outlet at your seat and a wide choice of magazines.


More refreshment

A separate water bottle at your seat ensures you can enjoy a refreshing drink whenever you wish.

More delight

Take your time choosing from the menu card and enjoy your meal served on china tableware especially designed for Premium Economy Class.


More relaxation

At your seat you will find a bag with useful travel accessories for a relaxing time on board.

More exclusivity

For a fee you can enjoy the benefits of almost all the Lufthansa Business Lounges and the Lufthansa Welcome Lounge in Frankfurt.**
