Older passengers – on board



Feeling good on board – with special meals and exceptional service

For many older people a special diet is important. They can have a special meal served on Lufthansa flights. From food suitable for diabetics and reduced-energy meals through to dishes low in cholesterol or sodium – the desired meal can be ordered up to 24 hours before departure. The only requirement is that the flight time is over 185 minutes for Economy Class passengers and 75 minutes for Business Class passengers. Special meals can be ordered through a travel agency, by calling the Lufthansa Service Centre or online on the Lufthansa website under ‘My Bookings’.

Passengers who, in their advancing years, are looking for a certain level of comfort and personal attention are extremely well looked after in Lufthansa Business Class or First Class. Here, among other benefits, they will enjoy excellent meals prepared by top chefs and supremely comfortable seats which turn into two-metre-long, fully flat beds.
