The new cabin in the 777-9 will incorporate the new seat for business class designed based on the customers’ suggestions. The seat has been developed exclusively for the german airline together with Lufthansa’s clients. More than 500 guests proportionated their support to the development.
Compared with its predecessors, the Boeing 777-9 will have a spacious cabin. “This space is used to increase significantly the level of comfortability for the passengers” stated from the german company.
All passengers of the new business class will have direct access to the corridor thanks to 1-2-1 and 1-1-1 configuration.
