Lufthansa Airlines is the latest to join the league of airlines who have renovated their first class cabins to pamper the already pampered flyers. In its bid to woo the luxury loving flyer, Lufthansa has unveiled “world’s quietest first class” cabin. The A380 cabin includes sound-absorbing curtains, which partition off the cabin as well as a sound-absorbing carpet to block footstep noise. Although this feature will appeal to many jet setters, it is the bathrooms aboard the A380 that steal the thunder. No ordinary first class bathroom this, it features wide vertical mirrors and a five-star hotel-style vanity area. The bathroom also boasts of a separate wash, changing area (complete with a leather banquette seat) and toilet areas.
Besides the lush toilets and the noise free travel experience, the renovated first class cabins also lockable floor-level cabinets instead of overhead luggage bins. Flyers who wish to enjoy this lush experience will be expected to shell out as much as $12,200 to enjoy these first class luxuries.
The Lufthansa A380’s maiden flight will take the German soccer team to South Africa for the World Cup while the first commercial flight is expected to take place on June 11 from Frankfurt to Tokyo. The A380 has 526 seats in total – eight First-Class cabins, 98 in business and 420 in economy.
