Lufthansa Introduces New ‘First Class Suite Plus’ Private Onboard Room

Lufthansa is expanding their premium First Class offering with the new Suite Plus, a separate double cabin with ceiling-high walls, a closable door, and a large table with two wide seats, which can be combined to form a comfortable double bed.

On Tuesday (February 28, 2023), Lufthansa unveiled their new First Class Suite Plus product offering. Suite Plus is a separate double cabin with ceiling-high walls, a fully closable door, a large table, and two wide chairs which can be combined into a comfortable double bed. With this flying private room, Lufthansa is setting a new First Class standard in luxury and comfort, while expanding options for guests to express their individual preferences when traveling. The game-changing First Class Suite’s features are unparalleled, allowing guests to warm or cool their nearly one-meter-wide seats and connect their own personal mobile device to the IFE system. Additionally, ample storage space is provided by a suite wardrobe, so guests can comfortably change and have all of their personal items at hand.


Speaking at the First Class Suite Plus launch in Berlin on Tuesday, Lufthansa Airlines’ CEO, Jens Ritter, said,


“Every guest has their own understanding of premium, which is why we focus on maximum individuality and exclusivity. The First Class Suite Plus conveys the feeling of privacy and individuality similar to a hotel room – only at an altitude of eleven kilometers. The Allegris range promises individuality, exclusivity, and premium service along the entire travel chain.”


Along with the unique onboard accommodations, First Class guests will enjoy the highest level of service, with the crew serving the gourmet menu at a time requested. Meals can be enjoyed at the large suite table, just like in a favorite restaurant. The new First Class product will be introduced in 2024 onboard Lufthansa’s newly delivered Airbus A350s, as part of the carrier’s new long-haul product, ‘Lufthansa Allegris.’ As part of the Allegris rollout, the overall travel experience will be elevated in all cabins, including Economy, Premium Economy, Business Class and First Class. Allegris is part of the largest product and service overhaul in the Group’s history, representing an investment of €2.5 billion by 2025.


Lufthansa Business Class guests can also look forward to their own suite for the first time, which will offer more comfort, chest-high privacy walls and sliding doors. Guests in the first rows will also enjoy extended personal space, a monitor up to 27 inches, ample storage, a wardrobe, and a personal mini-bar. Two Business Class suites can also connect, creating a large, private, personal space for traveling companions. As part of the Allegris product range, Business Class guests can choose between six additional seat options, depending on personal preference. Whether they want an extra-long 2.20 meter bed, extra space and work area, a seat with a baby bassinet, or simply a seat by the window, guests can now tailor their own experience. A double seat, where the center console can be retracted to transform it into a reclining surface for two will also be available.

All new Business Class options include direct aisle access, high seat walls for greater privacy, and generous shoulder space. Seats can be converted into a bed of at least two meters, guests will also enjoy high-definition 4K IFE screens, generously-sized dining tables, wireless charging, noise-cancelling headphones, and Bluetooth connectivity. Like in First Class, all Business Class seats feature a heating and cooling system, allowing guests the flexibility to set their own temperature. Additionally, for extra-comfortable side sleeping, the seats also feature a shoulder ‘sink-in’, allowing the shoulder to sink into the seat. A tablet-sized control unit provides convenient access to all seating, lighting heating/cooling and entertainment functions.


Allegris also introduces more space and choice for Premium Economy and Economy Class guests, with the new products already introduced at SWISS in the spring of 2022. The Allegris seat features more legroom, a fold-out leg rest, and can be adjusted further back than the current model without impacting fellow passengers in the row behind, thanks to an integrated hard shell design. Premium Economy passengers will also receive an amenity kit made from sustainable materials for added comfort. In the future, Allegris will also introduce more choices for Economy Class passengers, with the option of booking additional seats in the first rows that offer more legroom, or an empty seat next to them.


With Allegris, over 80 brand-new Lufthansa aircraft, including Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners, Airbus A350s and Boeing 777-9s will carry guests in supreme comfort to destinations worldwide. Additionally, aircraft currently in service, such as Lufthansa’s Boeing 747-8s, will be retrofitted. Unique in Lufthansa’s history, the simultaneous improvement of the travel experience across all cabins will see the replacement of more than 27,000 seats, underscoring the Group’s commitment to quality. Simultaneously, Lufthansa is in the midst of their largest fleet modernization in the company’s history, with over 200 new short and long-haul aircraft to be delivered to the Group's airlines by 2030.
