a couple of cartoonists capturing faces – and an opportunity to schmooze
with friends and celebrities, the audience was entertained with a
comprehensive array of Lufthansa background information.
This German airline flies to over 300 cities in more than 80 countries. It offers flights to 28 airports in Germany, the main ones being Frankfurt and Munich. Additional flights by its Star Alliance partners make its flight connections even more attractive.
With an average age of 8.3 years the Lufthansa fleet is one of the youngest and most environmentally friendly in the world, setting new standards with innovative concepts for intercontinental first, business and economy class.
One of the main features was the introduction of the new seats that are now standard equipment in Lufthansa’s first class. These seats were entertainingly demonstrated by a "redneck" from Sudbury, who was mainly interested in the comforts offered by the new seating, and a – corporate type – young lady, who needed her laptop to work on during the flight.
This is where Lufthansa offers significantly improved levels of comfort with comfortable seats and space between seats up to 234 centimetres. Seats can be converted into a two-metre long bed to relax on or they can be set up as a workstation with a power supply for a laptop computer, complete with foldout tables and an extra light fixture.
Flying first class also means that Lufthansa passengers can organize their time on board as they wish. For example with the a la carte service, passengers can select their own personal menus. The on-board video recorder also offers 20 different films in addition to the main video programme being shown. All passengers have their own video screens located in the armrest of their seats.
Lufthansa business class also offers more comfort with ergonomic reclining seats, increased space between the front seats and 50% more legroom. In addition to the traditional in-flight meals, passengers can also request a "quick meal" or decide to have a "last minute breakfast" shortly before landing. Lufthansa also offers you all of the services that you need for planning your trip, from making a booking through to the purchase and production of your electronic ticket anywhere in the world – from your home, your airline seat or during your journey using your laptop or mobile phone. At the "InfoFlyway" website (www.lufthansa.com) you can request information and book Lufthansa flights 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
That this airline does its utmost to provide its passengers with maximum comfort and relaxation on long-haul flights was very aptly demonstrated during the presentation.
A small glitch – the generator had run out of gas – provided the guests with an added opportunity to ask pertinent questions and get satisfactory and competent answers from the organizers.
This was altogether a very worthwhile and enlightening event, which brought Lufthansa and many of its important potential customers closer together. r.k.a.
