Lufthansa’s cross Europe flights normally contain two cabins with business class using normal economy seats with the centre seat blocked off. and better service
According to onemileatatime.com Lufthansa’s 747-8s (some of which are only six years old) are during a four-cabin configuration and A350-900s are in a three-cabin configuration in order that means that some passengers are going to be certain super treatment.
On the 747s aside from dedicated first and business class, there are even flatbed seats also the necessity to place your feet up for a two-hour flight could also be one step too far.
Although some carriers like BA and Virgin Atlantic. retired their 747s when the virus hit, Lufthansa only removed its 747-400s and most A380s but kept the upgraded 747-8s.
