Come September, Lufthansa’s first class passengers on the Munich-Mumbai sector can travel in better comfort as the airline has revamped the seating.

From September 2, the Munich-Mumbai route will be served by refurbished A330-300 aircraft fitted with the new Business Class seat, which will have a 6.5-feet long bed, the German government-owned airline said in a statement.

“The horizontal sleeping surface is a crucial factor for our passengers. This request was the focus for all our other considerations,” Lufthansa South Asia director Mr Axel Hilgers said.

With this launch, Lufthansa is offering its latest global product to three Indian cities - Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore.

Delhi will receive it with the inaugural flight of Lufthansa’s latest fleet member, the B747-8 intercontinental aircraft, on August 6, followed by Bangalore later in the year.
