Lufthansa will launch their first Airbus A321neo flight configured with the new Airbus Airspace Cabin tomorrow (September 4th) between Frankfurt and Fuerteventura. The cabin features more seating comfort, 40 percent larger overhead bins and modern lighting.
On Friday (September 3, 2021), Lufthansa announced the launch of a new and innovative cabin design for short and medium-haul flights. The Airbus Airspace cabin will make its debut tomorrow on an Airbus A321neo flight between Frankfurt and Fuerteventura. The new cabin design will be used by Lufthansa, SWISS, Brussels Airlines and Eurowings on new Airbus A320 Family Aircraft. The Airbus Airspace cabin features more seating comfort, 40 percent larger volume overhead bins and modern ‘Human Centric Lighting’ which can be adjusted depending on the time of day.
In Friday’s announcement, the Lufthansa Group’s Head of Customer Experience, Heike Birlenbach, said,
“Regardless of the crisis, we continue to focus emphatically on a premium offering for our guests. For us, premium means providing high-quality, individualized and relevant offers for all our passengers at all times. With the new Airspace Cabin, we are significantly improving the travel experience on short-haul routes.”
The overhead bins in the new Airspace cabin can hold sixty percent more suitcases, as they can now be stored vertically, rather than flat. The cabin design and entrance area have also been redesigned and now appear brighter and friendlier. The flexible ‘Human Centric’ lighting system illuminates the cabin in warm red light, graduated intermediate tones to colder blue light, to better align with guest biorhythms depending on the time of day or night. Seating comfort has also been improved as redesigned sidewalls provide added shoulder room. Additionally, the modern washrooms have been redesigned to make them more usable for guests with limited mobility.
