Lufthansa German Airlines is putting German engineering to the development of new Premium Economy seats. They’ll be wider and provide greater privacy, as well as approximately 3.9 inches of more room on the side because each seat has its own wide armrest and a center console between the seats. The back rest can be reclined further and a seat pitch of 38 inches offers significantly more space and adjustable head and foot supports. Passengers will have approximately one-and-a-half times as much room as compared to standard Economy Class and bigger video screens. Flights using 747-8 aircraft will be the first to offer the service in November. The new seats will gradually be fitted on the entire long-haul fleet within twelve months.
