For the first time, Lufthansa takes off an Airbus A321neo in a space cabin. The cabin provides special lighting and more space for hand luggage, but it also has drawbacks.
Lufthansa presents the first Airbus A321 Neo with a new cabin. The aircraft will go into operation for the first time on Saturday 4 September with a so-called airspace cabin on a flight from Frankfurt to Fuerteventura.
Lufthansa promises 40 percent more volume in overhead lockers. The airline declares that these “contain 60 percent more bags because they can be stored vertically in the compartments.” There is also a new lighting system that can illuminate the cabin with a warm red light, a cooler blue light or gradient nuances.
More room on the shoulder, less on the head
Lufthansa writes: “Depending on the time of day or night, the light in the cabin of the aircraft depends on the vital rhythm of the passengers.” Bathrooms should now be more usable for people with limited mobility.
Lufthansa also promises more comfort. The side walls of the cabin will give passengers more room in the shoulder area, according to the airline. However, the Airspace Cabin also has a drawback: the larger luggage compartments limit the space above the seats. Leaving the square in particular wouldn’t be easier this way.
Cab is also available in Swiss, Brussels and Eurowings
“In addition to Lufthansa, the new cabin will also be used by Swiss, Brussels and Eurowings on new aircraft of the Airbus 320 family,” the group announced. Before this article appeared, Lufthansa had not yet answered what the schedule would look like and when other Lufthansa planes would take off in the airspace cabin.
