Lufthansa has unveiled plans for a new concept business class, set to be rolled out in 2020.

The key element will be a new seat which had been developed to offer passengers “the best and soundest sleep above the clouds” by converting to a bed up to 220cm (86.6in) long

Airline board member Harry Hohmeister said the seat created, “a new global benchmark”.

New digital interfaces also mean all the functions of the seat as well as the in-flight entertainment system can be controlled using passengers’ own personal devices, while smartphones and tablets can be recharged at the seat using wireless technology.
