Lufthansa adds Premium Economy to its Asian routes

Travel News 01 Feb 2015

Lufthansa has started offering its new premium economy class on a series of routes connecting Asian cities with Munich.

The German carrier has now launched the cabins on flights linking Munich with Tokyo Haneda, Hong Kong and Shanghai, and from mid-February it will offer the new class on the Munich-Seoul route.

Additional routes will be added this summer, once Lufthansa has refitted more of its Airbus A340-600 aircraft. The new premium class was released to more of these long-haul routes to Asia due to significant demand in booking levels to date. The seats are up to 3cm wider than economy class seats, and each has its own broad armrest, which provides about 10cm more space at the side. The seat pitch of 97cm is almost 17cm greater than in economy class. Other seat features include a bottle holder, power socket and storage space for personal items.
