Lufthansa is overhauling the interiors of its short and medium-haul fleet.

In total, around 32,000 seats will be replaced on 180 planes over the course of one year.

The new seats are more ergonomic than previously and add four centimetres of leg room, according to a statement.

“With our new, more comfortable seats, completely revamped cabin and enhanced in-flight service, we are setting new standards on European routes,“ said Thierry Antinori, member of the board, Lufthansa.

“The slimmer seats will also enable us to increase the seating capacity of our short and medium-haul fleet and thus ensure that we remain competitive in future.”

Lufthansa is spending about 170 million euros on the new seats, which are also around 30% lighter than previous ones.
