Lufthansa’s short and medium-haul fleet undergo cabin revamp The figures by themselves are impressive: Lufthansa is installing some 32,000 new seats on more than 180 aircraft in its short and medium-haul fleet – within the space of just one year. This will create a new travel experience and ensure greater passenger comfort. Thanks to the new, ergonomically shaped seat with its slim backrest, passengers will now have more than four centimetres extra legroom. As part of the new inflight service concept, passengers travelling in Economy Class will again be offered snacks such as muesli bars and chocolate, even on domestic routes.
