D-AIXT: This is what Lufthansa's first Airbus A350 with the Allegris cabin looks like

Lufthansa's first Airbus A350 with the Allegris cabin will fly soon. It performs well on board – even without first class. It provides some interesting details.

The D-AIXT still smells like a “new airplane smell” in the cabin – completely unused, like a new car. On May 1, Lufthansa's newest Airbus A350-900 will take off with passengers for the first time; The first flight will be from Munich to Vancouver. Employees, customers and the media have already been able to get a closer look at the plane.

The long-haul aircraft currently has 263 usable seats, 201 of which are in economy class, 24 in premium economy class, and 38 in business class. Four first-class suites will be added starting in the fall. Due to certification issues, the first plane currently takes off without the more expensive booking class. Seven economy seats have been installed where the suites will soon be located, but they remain free.

Suites also in business class

The bookable cabin starts with the second row. And there are actually wings here too. There are eight of them in business class. They feature larger beds, larger screens and lockable doors.

Other seats also offer different options depending on the traveler's needs. Business travelers, solo travelers, couples as well as families with young children are taken into account. In some places the cradle can be placed next to the seat.

Upgrade to premium economy class

Premium Economy also receives a major upgrade. It is separated from both business class and economy class by a privacy screen. The seats are comfortable and the same type as our sister airline's premium economy class – but offer a few extra extras, like a 4K screen. The Recaro economy seats are also comfortable. Legroom is similar to that of competitors, and the screens feel large.

Little by little, more and more aircraft with Allegris cabin are being added. In 2024, one Allegris aircraft per month will join the fleet, and from 2025 there will be two.
