The seats will be dressed with Lufthansa’s signature colours of blue and grey, with the group selecting Recaro Aircraft Seating’s long haul seats – the CL3710 and CL3810.
The modular design of the CL3710 minimises maintenance and keeps the total cost of ownership low. The seat is provisioned with a six-way adjustable headrest with neck support enhances sleeping comfort for the passenger.
There is also an amenity flap built to store personal smart devices for added convenience, with a double-fold-out tray on the seat back.
Meanwhile, the CL3810 economy class seat will be retrofitted on both SWISS A330-300 and Lufthansa B747-8 aircraft. Thes seat offers additional living space and premium comfort cushions with layered foam and innovative ergonomic technology. The seat is 15% lighter in comparison to its predecessor, which can save airlines thousands in fuel costs and optimise cabin performance.
Both seats were built with sustainability in mind and feature lightweight structures, which will reduce carbon emissions for the aircraft.
The order of these seats will cover nearly 24,000 economy class seats and will be equipped on nearly 100 Lufthansa and SWISS aircraft.
Delivery of the first seats is slated for Q4.
Dr Mark Hiller, CEO at Recaro Aircraft Seating and Recaro Holding said
“We are looking back on 50 years of partnership with Lufthansa, and it’s a tremendous honor to still be working alongside them to optimize the passenger journey,”
“Our aligned goals for sustainable, comfortable seating solutions has garnered great success for both Recaro and Lufthansa, and I am confident that our CL3710 and CL3810 seats will carry on this tradition of excellence.”
Delivering Comfort in the Sky
With Reacro’s aim to deliver comfort in the sky, the selection by Lufthansa Group of the CL3710 and C3810 is going be a good choice for the people who will be sitting in the seats – the economy class passengers.
I’ve written extensively about the seats on and off and I recently got to try the seat out with another airline.
Compared to some long-haul seats, it delivered comfort, in terms of padding in the delicate areas, as well as legroom and a supportive neck-rest. Whilst, when you’re trying to catch a few winks whilst flying, is important.
And for Lufthansa’s passengers, it’ll be appreciated on the long haul legs.
