You can now book an entire row of three to four seats in Lufthansa’s economy class, on flights en route Frankfurt, Germany to Sao Paulo, Brazil, till mid-December. The new lie-flat economy seat concept or the sleeper’s row concept, which started from November 18, aims at helping passengers maintain social distancing onboard, also allowing them space enough to stretch, hence giving flyers a taste of business class.
Other facilities include, pillow, seat topper, blanket, priority boarding, etc. Those who wish to enjoy this kind of comfort must purchase the upgrade at the airport itself for USD 260 (approximately INR 19,236) over the actual price of the ticket. The upgrade can be purchased both at the check-in as well as the boarding gate.
