Lufthansa New Business Class Schedule

Tue Jan 16, 2007 4:45 am

I am scheduled on an LH flight from PHL - FRA for the start of my autumn vacation later this year. The flight is on a 343 (my first on one of these) but I see on the LH website reference to business class and new business class. What is the roll out schedule and are the 343s that fly FRA to the US configured with just J or do they have F too?

There are some older posts about this but nobody ever got an answer to this specific question.

Cheers,
John

Since at least Jan 8th, LH427 PHL-FRA should have the new business seat every day. There are a couple of flights with the old seat (Sundays for the next month). The flight will have F (8F36C197Y) until 24MAR2007 and will then change to 44C222M through OCT2007.

Just FYI, there are 8 A343's left to be reconfigured. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the help -- I don't fly this route until October so I should be new business. Even though I heard it's not the best it's better than coach.

The new LH business class is quite nice -- not the nicest out there, but much, much nicer than the old LH business class -- especially for sleeping.
