Lufthansa Premium Economy Review

Thinking of flying premium economy? RoundAbout Travel Airfare Consultant Michelle recently travelled in Lufthansa’s premium economy cabin to Europe.

Lufthansa Economy is currently priced from $1867 and Premium Economy from $3694. So what do you get for your extra money?

More Space

The Lufthansa premium economy seats are really very spacious with an extra inch in width and importantly a 38inch pitch compared to the 31inch pitch in Economy
