    According to Flight Global.....

    Lufthansa will configure the type with 386 passenger seats in a three-class layout, including a new business class.

    Dear LH,

    My purser on HKG-FRA mentioned the plane would be coming "soon", I guess they had an idea about this already. The other thing she mentioned is that F will be going downstairs in the nose since the upper deck is larger.

    C will have 2 + 2 seating upstairs, 2 2 2 seating on the main level and F will have 8 seats in the nose. Total of 92 C on the aircraft and 262 Y somewhere behind the curtains.....

    As much as I am not sold on the new C I have to admit that it takes guts anf good yiled management to pack C92 on a 744. It may be one of the largest C on this kind of plane. I recall a 744-400 configuration of C90 on the Japan routes before the economic downturn. Of course now the C section in even bigger being on a 380. Kudos to LH for filling these seats up...

    Looking forward to seeing this new aircraft and the new product in C. IAD has a large amount of premium traffic to Europe so it makes sense as a first destination.
