Lufthansa has announced a standardised A320 cabin configuration for all group airlines, around 100 new A320neo will be delivered to them by 2025.
The new configuration will have identical cabins, including seats and luggage compartments which only differ in branding and color of the seat cover.
An A320 has 180 seats in the new configuration. “The standardization has no direct influence on the seat pitch. […] Inside the cabin, on-board kitchens and washrooms will be rearranged in the front and rear of the aircraft, to allow a more efficient use of space.“, Lufthansa told AIRLIVE.net.
“A standardised cabin for the Airbus A321 fleet is still being developed“. Lufthansa is due to receive its first A321neo in early 2019.
Lufthansa Group will receive a total of 106 A320neo & A321neo aircraft by 2025, 15 of them (10 A320 + 5 A321) will go to subsidiary Swiss, the rest to Lufthansa itself. 10 A320neo have already been delivered to the German flag-carrier.
Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines and Eurowings will not receive neo aircraft for the time being.
The group currently has 176 new aircraft on-order, consisting of Airbus A320neo/A321neo, A350, Boeing 777-9X and Bombardier CSeries.
