New Lufthansa Biz Class Seats LAX-FRA

Tue Apr 05, 2005 2:46 pm

I found on Lufthansa's website that they are launching their new business class seats from LAX-FRA-LAX on April 28th 2005. However, when I contact their reservations to confirm, they are unable to give me an answer as to when that is. Is there anyway of finding out just when they will start service, as I am looking to book a flight very soon and would like the new seats?

According to my information, starting 27APR05 the new C-Class will be offered on LH456/457 FRA-LAX-FRA. The planes used on this route will be D-ABVF, D-ABVH, D-ABVK, D-ABVE and D-ABVW.

I just checked and the configuration of seats for the 28th on flight LH457 doesn't match with the current 747's that have the new product. Your flight is listed at F16 C78 M274. The new product 747 have F16 C53/67 M310/270.
However, I also heard that the LAX would be getting the new product for the summer schedule so there is still a chance. I've flown the new business seat 3 times now and love it. Also, the video system is finally fully on demand. Good luck, hope you get the seat!

Sorry, I thought you were looking for flights on April 28th. I went back and checked some random dates through May and the new seat is on the route. Let me know what dates you're traveling and I'd be happy to check for you.

Don't get too excited about the new seats. The single biggest plus is the amount of legroom. Huge improvement over the old Business Class. As far as the flat bed... make sure you have a window seat, otherwise you stand a good chance of getting kicked in the head while sleeping! When the seat reclines, the aisle-side armrest collapses flush with the seat bottom. The entire mechanism then moves the seat much lower to the floor. I did not find the flat position very comfortable because, although flat, you are angled with your feet lower than your head. I found I was sliding down very slowly and my shorts were slowly giving me a wedgie. I ended up putting the seat in the traditional cradle position in order to get some sleep.
It's been swell, but the swelling has gone down.

Just checked and the new business seat won't be on that flight on the 29th. Looks like it will start out of LAX on the 1st of April. There's always a chance that it will come in early though.
