Lufthansa Group announced yesterday that Italian manufacturer Geven has won a contract to produce thousands of new seats, for the entire Group A320 series fleet covering all brands.
The new seat which is thinner but more padded, with a full ergonomic design and creates more space, including allowing for a 20 degree tilt, will roll out during 2019-2022.
In addition all group aircraft from all airlines will be reconfigured identically – much as IAG is doing with its group fleets. This will enable all aircraft to be transferable as needed, with just seat covers and external livery needing to be changed to re-brand. This will take about 5 days rather than some two weeks previously.
