Quoting Wdleiser (Thread starter): What's the status of them upgrading their first class product? I remember reading that a new revamp first class will be introduced with the A380. Does anyone know which seats they will be?
Yes, they will be introducing a new F class. I've heard rumors about them configuring the F cabin on an A330-300, with half the seats being the new ones, and the other half old ones. I'm not sure if this is true though.
Quoting Wdleiser (Thread starter): Also... will the A380 continue to use Lufthansa's current Business class product?
The A380, is also said to get a new J product, as well as Y.

Quoting Slz396 (Reply 2): Is F class available at all of their intercontinental hubs? On all of their long haul destinations?
the short answer is no. F class varies by aircraft type, All of the 744s have it, some A346s have it, but some have a 2 class configuration (though i've read on these boards that all of the A346s will get first class) some A343s have First class, some don't, all the A333s have first class.
Yes, I'd like to see airbus go under so Boeing can have their customers!

This make no sense. Why they will install half and keep the other half with the old ones????
AFAIK Lufthansa will introduce a new First, the improvement are more leg room to allowe the seat to become a real falt bed with some minor modifications, and Economy they will increase the seats wide from 17 to 17.5 also will remove one or two rows in order to increase the pitch to 33.

Quoting THEENGINEER (Reply 6): I don't think so. I would be annoyed if I would have gotten one of their older seats while someone else got a new seat
An A340 was refitted with 4 old seats and 4 of the new seats. Only 4 seats were sold in the F-cabin on these flights and passengers had a choice of sitting in the old seats if they did not like the new ones or if the new ones were malfunctioning.

They had done the same with the "new" (well, not that new any more!) business class seats. When they were testing them, they had equipped one of their planes with one or two rows of the new seats for some passengers to try them out. And I believe they had curtained them off too to keep them as secret as possible. I remember seeing a small clip about this test on one of their flights around the time when they finally made the product public.
