Lufthansa unveils beautiful new first class suite

Lufthansa has debuted a full suite of new long haul flying products from Economy to First Class named, “Allegris.” The images of their new first class are simply incredible and they even feature something BEYOND a single seat seatup that rivals the likes of Singapore Suites, Etihad’s Apartment, and Emirates Game Changer…what’s they’re calling…

First Class Suite Plus

Are we even being serious right now?

We had speculated that the front cabin may be 1-1-1 but this confirms it. WOW.

The setup is for two people traveling together in a MONSTER suite in the middle seat with two belts.  I wonder how this will price?

And then of course into a full size bed

Why yes my face is currently covered in drool, but also tears. The odds of these suites being released for first class about basically NIL, and I’d even nary say that it will be exceptionally difficult to book any Lufthansa First Class seats with just 3 in the cabin.

New Lufthansa First Class

Here’s what Lufthansa is advertising its new first class will have when it debuts sometime in 2024 on the new A350s.  Plans are to retrofit the 747-8s with this product as well:

  • Near ceiling high walls that can be fully closed
  • Near meter wide seats that go into a completely flat seat
  • Personal wardrobe
  • Enough privacy to change into first class pajamas
  • Blue tooth connectivity
  • Full suite width IFE
  • Caviar service will stay in tact and first class passengers will be given the option of eating across from one another during meal service

The renderings are simply divine.

Compare this to the current first class

Overall

Pretty awesome if you ask me.

There is currently an 80k offer after $4k spend in 3 months available in branch, and up to 90k after $6k spend in 6 months. I suspect some version of this will be online soon if you don’t want the hassle of going into a branch.

We keep an up to date spreadsheet that lists the best ever offers: You can find that spreadsheet here.

Historically 60k is a very, very good offer. In 2021, we saw the offer hit an all time high of 100k. Who knows if that will ever come back. .

Main Cast: 

Cards that earn flexible points and should be used on the bulk of your purchases.

Supporting Cast:

Cards that earn fixed points in the currency of the airline/hotel and can not be transferred at attractive rates. These cards yield benefits that make it worth keeping, but not necessarily worth putting a lot of your everyday spend on.

    Speaking of Lufthansa – what do you think of this offer? Is it worth the money? https://www.asmallworld.com/miles/en

    1. Do you have any idea when the new first class will be available for booking?
    2. How many 747-8s will be retrofitted with the new first class?
