Lufthansa has launched a new seating product for Economy Class passengers travelling on select long-haul flights, called Sleeper’s Row.
Travellers will have the option of booking the new offer at the check-in or at the gate before their flight.
Passengers will receive an entire row of seats for themselves, consisting of three to four adjacent seats, for the entire duration of the flight.
The offer comes with a pillow, blanket and mattress topper, allowing passengers to relax while on board before reaching their final destination. Safety during the flight is ensured by a special seat belt, which remains fastened even when the passenger is lying down, including separate safety instructions.
Moreover, passengers who book a Sleeper’s Row can benefit from pre-boarding, allowing them to enter the aircraft earlier than other guests.
Lufthansa offers the Sleeper’s Row on long-haul flights of 11 hours or more, for example on routes to the Far East, the United States’ west coast, Central and South America, or southern Africa.
The surcharge is between €159 and €229 per route. A maximum of three Sleeper’s Rows are offered per flight, however, passengers cannot reserve the seats in advance.
Lufthansa has already tested the Sleeper’s Row on the route Frankfurt-São Paulo-Frankfurt for several weeks at the end of last year. According to the airline, the offer has received positive feedback, meeting passengers demand for more comfort and individuality.
