Lufthansa recently unveiled its new first-class offering, the Suite Plus, a separate double cabin with ceiling-high walls and a closable door, large table and two wide seats. The seats convert to a comfortable double bed.
The Suite’s amenities and features allow passengers to warm or cool the seats, at nearly 1 meter wide, to their personal preferences and connect personal mobile devices to the entertainment system. A suite wardrobe provides ample storage space and a gourmet menu is served at the time of the passenger’s choosing.
“Every guest has their own understanding of premium, which is why we focus on maximum individuality and exclusivity. The First Class Suite Plus conveys the feeling of privacy and individuality similar to a hotel room – only at an altitude of eleven kilometers,” explained Jens Ritter, CEO, Lufthansa Airlines, at the launch of the First Class Suite Plus on Feb. 28 in Berlin. “The Allegris range promises individuality, exclusivity, and premium service along the entire travel chain.”
Lufthansa Allegris, which the First Class Suite Plus is part of, debuts in 2024 on newly delivered Airbus A350s and represents the airline’s entire new long-haul product, including first, business, premium economy and economy. Allegris, a 2.5-billion-euro investment, marks the Lufthansa Group’s largest product and service haul to date. It also brings more than 80 brand-new Lufthansa aircraft to the carrier.

The air was so still the ice in my single malt seemed to echo off the forest in the distance as it clanked against the glass. I sat among a handful of fellow adventurers, each sitting silently beneath the night sky for one collective goal. Moments earlier, we learned a troop of mountain gorillas had made their way down the mountain near our lodge, and we left our meals to instead sit in eager anticipation of hearing the guttural grunts of the primates below. The chills on my arms never left me that night, even as I made my way up a stone pathway to my personal banda (guestroom). Thankfully, sleep came quickly for me that night as I drifted into dreams of what my next day would bring.
