The A350-900 provides Lufthansa passengers with a comfortable traveling experience. With its wider cabin passengers have more room and a generous sense of space. A self-service section in Business Class provides more passenger comfort, plus new seats in economy and larger monitors. Thanks to a special lighting concept, passengers arrive at their destination feeling more rested. “We want our customers on board to feel comfortable and to arrive relaxed even after long flights. This is why we have improved passenger comfort even more in the A350-900”, says Thomas Winkelmann, CEOLufthansa Hub Munich.

For the first time, Lufthansa will offer its customers a new service on the A350-900. Passengers in Business Class will be able to serve themselves refreshments between meals. In a specially designed self-service area passengers can enjoy a variety of snacks. A refrigerator is also provided with cold drinks.

Passengers in Economy will in future be seated in ergonomically designed seats which also appear in a new color scheme. In future there will also be more room to stow personal items.

In all classes passengers will benefit from the latest FlyNet technology and improved web surfing above the clouds. The larger screens provide the most advanced user interface.

Thanks to the special design of the A350-900, the cabin pressure during flight is pleasant, so passengers arrived more rested. This is comparable with an altitude of 1,800 meters, versus 2,400 meters of altitude with comparable aircraft. The effect is also enhanced by an innovative lighting concept with a total of 12 light scenarios. These can be deployed in such a way that passengers can adapt their biorhythm better to local time at their destination.

Lufthansa is stationing the first ten Airbus A350-900 aircraft at Munich starting January 2017. Initial destinations are likely to be Delhi and Boston. The aircraft will provide seating for 293 passengers: 48 in Business, 21 in Premium Economy and 224 in Economy.

The A350-900 is the world’s most modern and environmentally friendly long-haul aircraft. It consumes 25 percent less fuel and produces an up to 50 percent less noise footprint than similar aircraft types.
