LH New Biz - When Will 747s Be Updated

Sat Oct 21, 2006 7:24 am

Any info on when Lufthansa is planning to update their 747s with the new Biz Class?

I know that their HP says they will be done by spring 07. Does anyone know if they are on schedule with the modifications?

I believe some of them have already been done - Seatguru.com already has the configuration on their website.

I do know that when I was looking for business seats on flights to India this Jan, all of the LH 744s were showing the old configuration.

the winter schedule is pretty thinned out compared to the summer season. this allows LH to 'fast-track' the cabin refurbishing this winter. unless serious troubles appear the vast majority of 744s should have the new interiors by the start of the summer period.

I wouldn't trust LH with any news regarding new services/seats, etc.

They were so slow with the implementation of wireless internet that the program was cancelled before full implementation of their goal of all North American-FRA flights. IAH never received and now likely never will, the internet service.

With regards to new business class, good luck on that if you are a traveler to India on their 744's. Their business class is as bad as AA's is and that should make LH's executives ashamed.
