Anche secondo me.
E in verità a vederle sembrano panchine ma in realtà non si sta poi così scomodi.
Parlo naturalmente dei sedili montati su A320neo

"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"

Bel colpo per Geven, straight outta Nola!
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.

Pare confermato che il modello sia proprio l'Essenza... 29" di pitch:

Swiss 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.

Definisci 'abbastanza brevi' - Se fai FRA-TLV su un 321 con quei sedili dopo quattro ore non hai piu' la schiena!
Senza dubbio.

Ad ogni modo congratulazioni al gruppo LH.

Ciao

Il 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.

"Aufsichtsrat" = "Comitato di controllo" (Ammesso che in Italia esista :D)

Spohr critica pubblicamente FRA (ricordando molto la strategia di WW vs LHR)

Lufthansa CEO Says Frankfurt Airport Too Expensive And Must Change

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 e le tre opzioni per crescere in Italia
09/05/2018 13:30
Alitalia è una di esse, ma il gruppo mette in conto di crescere sia con Air Dolomiti sia con Eurowings. E prosegue con gli accordi di connessione diretta con le agenzie di viaggio
Lufthansa ha almeno tre vie per crescere nel nostro Paese. “Certamente abbiamo più di una opzione sul mercato italiano, che è strategico”, commenta Steffen Weinstock, senior director sales Italia e Malta del Gruppo Lufthansa, stamane durante una delle tappe dell’academy di formazione per le agenzie di viaggio.

Non è quindi solo l’eventuale acquisizione di Alitalia l’opportunità di radicarsi. Il Belpaese va talmente bene nelle prenotazioni che Weinstock si dà appuntamento almeno una volta al mese con il revenue manager del gruppo per aggiustare la capacità e avanzare richieste di rinforzo. “Possiamo crescere con Air Dolomiti e anche con Eurowings”, asserisce.

Quest’ultima, votata al lungo raggio leisure, sta assorbendo Brussels e i due brand confluiscono nel Gruppo Eurowings, ereditando ben 77 aerei da Air Berlin, i quali andranno inseriti nelle programmazioni sapientemente. Ma non è ancora finita: altre decisioni verranno prese per completare il disegno tra integrazioni e fusioni. Il che lascia comprendere come il gruppo continua ad essere molto impegnato nel 'gioco di puzzle', per il quale ha ormai una discreta esperienza. “Siamo esperti, l’abbiamo fatto altre tre volte (con Austrian, Swiss e Brussels, appunto) – spiega Weinstock -. Nel trasporto aereo si dice che una compagnia dominata dal revenue management può fallire perché non trova passeggeri e se è dominata dalle vendite fallisce perché non ha posti. Ci vuole un grande equilibrio”. E tanta organizzazione, a partire dall'unificare i processi aziendali.

Uno dei fattori che da Zurigo, sede del revenue management del gruppo, osservano con estrema attenzione è la forte richiesta di turismo verso l’Italia. “Va presidiata, ad esempio su Bologna avremmo bisogno di più capacità”.

Al netto di quanto detto, il manager prospetta che il 2018 non sarà un anno di crescita “facile” come il 2017. “Il prezzo del kerosene sale, lo scenario italiano ha nuovi player come Norwegian ed Air Italy, le low cost continuano la loro pressione – continua -. Ma secondo noi il mercato non corrisponde a tanta offerta. L’incremento che abbiamo registrato l’anno scorso sarà difficilmente ripetibile”.

Tornando su Alitalia, la situazione venutasi a creare con lo stallo di Governo fa riflettere: “Credo non giovi alla compagnia se ci sono acquirenti interessati, ma nessuno che decide a chi vendere”, chiosa.

Intanto, Lufthansa e consociate continuano con gli accordi di connessione diretta sul mercato italiano, quello appena concluso è con il network Welcome travel group. “Ne verranno altri, molto dipende dalla struttura tecnologica e di backoffice che le agenzie hanno”. In Germania, Svizzera e Austria per la prima volta sono state introdotte tariffe dedicate alle agenzie che prenotano direttamente e che non sono presenti sui Gds. “La nostra strategia è chiara: vogliamo dare più contenuti prenotabili al trade”. p.ba.

Re: Lufthansa, €2,36 miliardi di utile netto. Il migliore risultato di sempre

Copio e incollo un´interessante intervista al capo commerciale della gestione della flotta del Lufthansa Group riguardo al processo di ordine di nuovi aeromobili. Un punto interessante nell´intervista é la precisazione del Signor Hennemann riguardo la destinazione degli aeromobili. Questo punto é strettamente legato alle performance della compagnia aerea e alla sua efficienza riguardo i costi e le strutture. Spero che sia anche per voi interessante.

Aircraft shopping for the Lufthansa Group:

Jörg Hennemann, Head of Commercial Fleet Management Lufthansa Group, explains in an interview the current aircraft order and the strategy behind it.

Mr. Hennemann, aircraft purchasing sounds exciting.

Jörg Hennemann: That's right. In fact, it's very exciting. After all, we are dealing here with the vast majority of Lufthansa Group investments and this directly affects the airlines' core business. But it's not as trivial as shopping at Amazon. The purchase of aircraft is very complex and takes years, and that is not all that matters. The specification is determined beforehand. In a nutshell, it's like configuring a car before you buy it.

But how do you know which aircraft we need and how many?

Before buying an aircraft, there is always the market or our fleet requirements, linked to the general question of how many aircraft we will actually need in the next 10 years. How big do you want our factory to be? Once the aircraft is procured, it will remain with us for many years and must be managed commercially. In Commercial Fleet Management, we assume responsibility for these processes for the entire Lufthansa Group.

Do you have a personal favourite aircraft?

My favourite aircraft is the one that can be used flexibly by as many Group Airlines as possible. In my view, the future of the Lufthansa Group fleet must consist in reacting more quickly and flexibly to changing conditions, both opportunities and risks. To this end, we are setting the course in our fleet strategy.

What do you mean by that?

We see every day how volatile and complex the world is. If you plan the fleet well in advance, new guidelines must be set for orientation. For example, we are pushing ahead with standardization within the Lufthansa Group. But if you want to try to make exact predictions over extremely long periods of time, for example of traffic flows at country level, you would most likely be wrong.

What is the Lufthansa Group's future fleet strategy?

The fleet strategy of the future must create new framework conditions so that we can react more quickly and flexibly to changes and take advantage of the benefits of ‘multi-hubbing’. The fleet strategy is thus clearly part of the Group strategy - consolidation, flexibilization and digitization. We have already achieved a great step, for example with the "Agile A320" project. Starting in 2019, all A320s will be delivered as standardized aircraft for the Lufthansa Group. The downtimes for cabin modifications for example when shifting from one group airline to another can thus be significantly reduced and the conversion costs at least halved. We have similar plans for long-haul aircraft. The cabin configuration of the new Boeing 777-9 is also based on standardization.

The Lufthansa Group currently has no less than 738 aircraft of all types and 192 aircraft on its order list. In total that would be more than 900 aircraft.

Unfortunately not really, because over the years aircraft will also be released, even though we added 100 aircraft last year alone. 36 planes have left us, too. There is a lot of dynamism in the fleet, but certainly with a clear tendency towards fleet growth.

Among other things, the Supervisory Board gave the go-ahead this week for the order of two further Boeing 777-300ERs for SWISS and two Boeing 777 freighters. What are the criteria for such an order? Do the airlines get planes that scream "here" the loudest?

No, not at all. To this end, we have, among other things, the "Strategic Roadmap Discussion" (SRD) on the fleet, which takes place once a year together with the Group Executive Board and the airline CEOs. Various aspects are taken into account when purchasing aircraft, such as market and competitive developments and, of course, our available budget and the performance of the Group airline. Clear priority must be given to what is often not an easy discussion.

Can you describe this in more detail?

SWISS has clearly demonstrated in recent years that it has been successful in the long term. We do well to invest our money where costs and quality offer the best conditions for profitable investments. The two Boeing 777-300ERs are clearly growth aircraft in order to exploit the market potential that we see in Switzerland. Lufthansa Cargo is also reporting good results at present. It has been confirmed that more economical aircraft have a clearly positive effect on economic efficiency. With the two Boeing 777 freighters we want to continue investing in newer technology and replace older MD11Fs.

Lufthansa has once again ordered the Airbus A320ceo, i.e. the A320 with conventional technology. Why is that?

We have numerous deliveries of A320neos ahead of us in the coming years - next year 23 aircraft of this type are to join the Lufthansa Group. Unfortunately, in the past, the number of A320neo deliveries or delivery dates often changed from plan. We are therefore planning to operate the A320ceos we have now ordered before the end of this year, giving us greater flexibility in the future. In concrete terms, this means that we can better protect ourselves against potential delivery risks.

Re: Lufthansa, €2,36 miliardi di utile netto. Il migliore risultato di sempre

In teoria tutto molto bello. In pratica capita (come è successo a me recentemente) di comprare un biglietto in J con Swiss, volare con un 343 vintage mai toccato dagli anni 90, scendere e dire: beh, tutto sommato non è male questa Edelweiss. Peccato che in realtà fosse davvero un volo Swiss.

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.

German airline Lufthansa CEO Carsten Spohr speaks during the company's annual news conference in Frankfurt, Germany March 15, 2018. REUTERS/Ralph Orlowski

“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.”

OT ma non volevo aprire un altro thread.

Lufthansa scores own goal with Russia World Cup video shot in Kiev

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.
