Lufthansa has announced plans to upgrade its short and medium-haul flights, aiming to provide passengers with a transformed travel experience by Spring 2025. The airline will modernize the cabin interiors of 38 Airbus A320s in its fleet, focusing on passenger comfort and technology integration. The upgrades include larger overhead bins, offering a 40 percent increase in storage space for carry-on luggage. Lufthansa has partnered with Italian manufacturer Geven to introduce redesigned seating that provides more legroom without compromising capacity. Each seat will also feature a dedicated USB port for device charging and integrated tablet and smartphone holders for hands-free entertainment.
Although images of the updated cabins have not been released, the reconfiguration process is expected to begin no earlier than 18 months from now. As for Lufthansa’s 2025 flight schedule, specific details are still pending. However, passengers can likely enjoy these new cabins on popular short and medium-haul routes originating from Frankfurt Airport and Munich Airport. Lufthansa’s network includes destinations in the United States such as Atlanta, Boston, Miami, New York, and San Francisco. In addition to the cabin upgrades, Lufthansa is also revamping its long-haul aircraft cabins, including A380s, Boeing 747-8s, and 787-9 Dreamliners, to feature a new Business Class cabin called Allegris. The airline aims to offer enhanced privacy and convenience for frequent flyers and business travelers, with the first flights expected to launch in 2024.
