German flag carrier Lufthansa has revealed the concept for its new business class which will feature on its 777-9 which is scheduled to be delivered in 2020.
The cabin will feature lie flat seats with direct aisle access. The airline has gone for a particularly interesting staggered 1-2-1 and 1-1-1 configuration. That will make every alternate center seat a throne seat with a lot of privacy and space. The airline also says that the seat will be 220cm or 7.2 feet long – which is a lot.
The seat will also feature wireless charging and digital interfaces which will allow passengers to control the seat and IFE using their smart devices.
