Lufthansa to Drop First Class Cabins on Some Long-Haul Aircraft

Lots of travelers complain about the state of Lufthansa’s current business class offering (which I’ll be taking in a few weeks and regardless of what anyone says, it’s better than being stuffed back in coach eating a tuna calzone, which I have done on that airline), but based on the blogger reviews I’ve seen, everyone loves Lufthansa’s first class product.

Don’t get too used to it.

As part of a cost-cutting program, Lufthansa will be dropping first class cabins from its 747-400s and A340-300s and going with a 2-cabin layout.

At the same time, they are considering introducing Premium Economy onto other aircraft, which is good news (I think), assuming United ever allows premium economy redemptions.

No word on when they’ll be removing those cabins, but it sounds like it will be sooner rather than later.
