There’s nothing quite like flying first class on a long trip. Priority boarding is only made sweeter by seeing dozens of disgruntled economy-class businessmen coming back from company sponsored trips passing your comfortable seat as they cram into their tiny, uncomfortable spaces, all while you sip your complementary champagne and snuggle into your provided blanket.
For many, the extra dollars it costs to enjoy this unique privilege is more than worth the added comfort and general enjoyment. And now, the German commercial carrier Lufthansa is unveiling its all new first class option, one that is sure to wow travelers with the money to spend across the globe.
Installed in an Airbus A380, the first class features some aspects that have never before been seen, even with the most seasoned of travel enthusiasts. The superjumbo jet is one of the largest available, and features a total of 526 seats with which to accommodate economy and business class passengers. Eight of those seats, however, are to house those who are not afraid of spending a few extra bucks, and the airline guarantees that those dollars will not be lacking any ‘bang’.
The airline claims that their first class seats are some of the quietest in the industry, and with only eight seats available, they are also some of the most luxurious. The seats are over two meters long, promising a flight free of leg cramps of discomfort. Ceilings are also higher due to the airline making away with overhead storage bins and securing luggage in floor-level cabinets.
Going along with the promise of a quiet flight, the first class cabin also features sound-insulating materials around the cabin, which block off the constant roar of the jet’s considerable engines. Private curtains also block off the sound from inside the aircraft, allowing each passenger to determine the degree of privacy they desire.
With the World Cup just around the corner, the airline is proud to announce that their first passengers in the first class cabin will be the German soccer team. Lufthansa is currently expecting four more A380 delivered within the year, ready to service both economy class passengers and the select few who will take advantage of the revolutionary new first class.
