Straight from Lufthansa’s twitter feed, check out the new Lufthansa Business Class seat!

This rendering of their new business class seat showcases the extra privacy which they claim will give the best sleep. Crucially, every seat will have aisle access and a special shoulder zone for side sleepers. Monitors will also be larger and this seat will come into circulation in 2020 with their Boeing 779-9 planes.

You can read all my Lufthansa long haul Business and First Class flight reviews, which include both Business and First Class flights that we have recently reviewed.

Overall, our most recent Lufthansa Business Class experience (not in this new seat) on the 747-800 was good but not great. In particular, if you are a single traveller, the proximity to your neighbour may feel intrusive and there are no seats available except in a pair or trio. So this refreshed seat design is just what Lufthansa needs. This intrusive neighbour problem does not happen in First Class on their A380 which is frankly excellent, with super comfy lie-flat seats for sleeping and very consistent experience. It is well worth treating yourself to.
