Anche secondo me.Solo io non vedo differenze rispetto al Recaro che hanno adesso?
Una prece per i poveri cristi nella prima fila di economy."The only difference is that business class passengers will be able to recline their seats up to a 26-degree angle, while those in economy will have a fixed 20-degree recline – up eight degrees from the current design"
Dopo la livrea questa palanca dove ci starebbero bene du’ blocchetti pe’ reggela e tre muratori sopra con ‘na rosetta in pausa pranzo. Scelte LH quantomeno discutibili le ultime...Svelata la nuova seduta di business sugli A320 per il Gruppo LH (LH, OS, LX).
Bella cagata si puo' dire?
Che poi sarebbero queste giusto?Solo io non vedo differenze rispetto al Recaro che hanno adesso?
Considerando che vogliono standardizzare il prodotto su tutta flotta narrowbody Airbus di LH Group per gli hub carrier (quindi LH, LX e OS), si parla di parecchie centinaia di aerei e quindi parecchie migliaia di sedili.Bel colpo per Geven, straight outta Nola!
HMGAerospaceSwiss Airlines will be the first of Lufthansa Group’s airlines to get a new economy class seat from Italian supplier Geven, as the airline group standardises seating across its continental fleet.
The German airline group selected Geven to equip its fleet of Airbus A320 and A321neos with the new Essenza Economy Class seat as standard across its hub airlines Swiss, Austrian and Lufthansa. The selection of the new seats from Geven is part of a larger cabin design modernisation project that Lufthansa is undergoing as part of its development and growth plan.
The seats will be delivered in 50 ship-sets for each airline, with deliveries to start in the fourth quarter of this year and go on until 2022. The first A320 with the new seats is expected to receive them in the first quarter of 2019, with a total of 93 aircraft to be fitted in either 174-seat or 180-seat layouts.
The 29-inch pitch Essenza seats will be delivered for linefit with different trim and finish variants (Lufthansa, Swiss Airlines, Austrian Airlines). It is the first time that a standardised seat has been selected for equipping aircraft across the group’s different airlines.
“Lufthansa Group is a highly demanding and meticulous customer but also an ideal partner for developing new products and solutions to their passengers worldwide and ultimately to the aviation industry,” said Alberto Veneruso, Geven managing director, at AIX in Hamburg. “Lufthansa Group is well known for paying high attention in the selection of its partners. Since the early stage of the negotiation phase they made several audit activities and required a huge amount of detail and data that have been carefully analysed. For those reasons, to have been selected for such an important project makes Geven extremely proud.”
Paul Estoppey, head of product cabin at Lufthansa Group, said: “The co-operation with Geven went very well. Due to the combination of seat manufacturer know-how and our customer perspective, we have jointly developed a great seat that is both technically and ergonomically state-of-the-art.”
The Essenza seat is 7.9 kg ‘fully dressed’, with the backrest made of single-piece carbon fibre with both structural and aesthetical functions, meaning no additional fairing or plastic shrouds are needed. With only the foam and the cover added, this results in a lower number of parts and lower weight.
An innovative horizontal literature pocket has been designed, leaving a slimmer backrest, leaving more room for passengers.
Senza dubbio.Definisci 'abbastanza brevi' - Se fai FRA-TLV su un 321 con quei sedili dopo quattro ore non hai piu' la schiena!
OT linguisticoIl Gruppo Lufthansa ha ordinato oggi due ulteriori b777-300 per Swiss, due b777f per Lufthansa Cargo ed ulteriori 12 a320Neo per Lufthansa Airlines. L’ordine è stato approvato dall’”Aufsichtsrat” (perdonatemi non mi viene in mente il nome italiano della riunione annuale degli azionisti...o forse si chiama semplicemente così ). Domani la riunione dello stesso.

FRANKFURT (Alliance News) - Deutsche Lufthansa AG Chief Executive Carsten Spohr has criticized Frankfurt airport, Germany's busiest, calling it too expensive and not worth the money.
Speaking to shareholders at Tuesday's annual general meeting in the western German city, Spohr noted that the airport was the most expensive in Lufthansa's offering.
In his view, the airport, which makes up the German carrier's main hub, is not fulfilling expectations of premium quality. "That has to change," he said. "In the meantime, we'll make greater efforts to shift our growth to Zurich, Munich and Vienna."
As an example of this changing focus, he cited Lufthansa subsidiary Swiss's recently announced purchase of two more Boeing 777 models.
Lufthansa eyes another record summer, but sticks to profit target
SYDNEY (Reuters) - Lufthansa’s (LHAG.DE) chief executive is expecting another record summer in terms of bookings but is still sticking to a forecast for profit to fall this year given rising oil prices and the cost of expanding its Eurowings business.

“Basically we are looking for a record summer, even outperforming the record summer of 2017,” Carsten Spohr told Reuters on the sidelines of an aviation industry meeting in Sydney.
“That applies to the load factors and we are quite positive on the yield situation for this summer,” he said.
Lufthansa is growing its Eurowings budget unit via acquisitions, and Spohr said Lufthansa could grab more opportunities when they arise.
He said while Alitalia would make a good addition to its collection of premium brands, alongside Lufthansa, Swiss and Austrian units, he repeated it needed restructuring first.
Asked whether Lufthansa was interested in Norwegian Air Shuttle (NWC.OL), Spohr said: “Everybody talks to everybody right now. It’s a small continent.”

FRANKFURT AM MAIN: German airline Lufthansa apologised on Monday (Jun 4) over a promotional video for the World Cup in Russia that was actually filmed in neighbouring Ukraine, which is locked in a tense dispute with Moscow.
The clip, which has been removed from Lufthansa's websites but can still be viewed elsewhere online, shows two Germany fans headed for Moscow determined to repeat everything they did in Rio four years ago when Germany were crowned champions.
The men imagine themselves shivering in summer attire on a rainy square and enjoying the "beach" on the banks of a river - with viewers quickly spotting that both scenes were filmed in the Ukrainian capital Kiev.
"We noticed in the first comments that this hurt the feelings of some viewers. We sincerely regret and apologise for this," a Lufthansa statement said.
"That is why Lufthansa at the weekend already removed the video from all social media platforms."
Germany's flagship carrier, which has dubbed planes flying supporters to the football extravaganza "Fanhansa", said the clip was shot in Kiev for "logistical reasons", adding that this was common practice for commercials.
But the choice of Kiev as a substitute for Moscow is particularly awkward with the two countries locked in a simmering conflict ever since Russia annexed Crimea from Ukraine in 2014.
Fighting between pro-Russia insurgents and government troops in eastern Ukraine has so far killed more than 10,000 people.
Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin was quick to jump on Lufthansa's gaffe, ribbing the company for "cheating".
"I can understand why Lufthansa preferred to film in Ukraine rather than Russia: it's beautiful here, and safe. But you shouldn't cheat," he tweeted.
"I hereby suggest that Lufthansa use the material it shot for a cool commercial about its flights to Kiev," he added.
