Lufthansa Sizes: Luggage Allowances, Seats…

Deutsche Lufthansa AG is the Germany’s national airline, also known as Lufthansa Airlines. When combined with its subsidiaries, it is the second-largest airline in Europe in terms of passengers carried. One of the five original founding members of Star Alliance, the largest airline alliance in the world, was established in 1997 (skip straight to the Lufthansa Sizes charts).

Technically, the seats in Lufthansa’s main cabin are quite standard: The normal seat width on a Lufthansa Boeing 747-8 Intercontinental flight from Chicago to Frankfurt is approximately 17.1 inches, while the seat pitch, or the space between the back of your seat and the back of the seat in front of you, is a respectable 31 inches. However, the reality is a little better than the statistics would imply. Because of the “slim” design of the seat backs, you have a little more room to spread your legs on those 31 inches.

That’s good, but if you can afford to spend more money on a premium economy seat with more legroom, do it. They provide a roomier 19 inches in breadth, an astonishing 38 inches of pitch, and more legroom on the same Boeing 747-8.

Lufthansa provides a novel approach to increasing the comfort of your flight: pay a fee to keep the middle seat away from other passengers. You can reserve the middle seat next to yours for roughly $42 (35 euros) in select circumstances, such as on continental routes. This will prevent unpleasant elbow wrangling for space on the armrest and give you a bit more room to spread out and breathe.
