Lufthansa plans premium economy

Lufthansa stated (05-Dec-2012) it is expanding its product portfolio and will equip the entire Lufthansa long-haul fleet with a premium economy cabin. The supervisory board has approved the investment capital for the introductory project to achieve this. At the beginning of 2013, a project group will be formed to manage the introduction and define the precise features of the product as well as a detailed timetable. Premium economy will be installed on the entire intercontinental fleet. This substantially upgraded economy product will fill the gap between the superior business class segment, which features a seat that can be converted into a fully flat bed, on one side and the classic economy class on the other. The carrier said development will take "about two years". [more - original PR - German]
