Lufthansa unveils redesigned first class cabin on new Airbus A380

German national airline Lufthansa recently began operating its newest Airbus A380 superjumbo jet on the route between Frankfurt and New York, and travel website Jaunted got an early look at the plane's innovative first class cabin.

According to the source, first class passengers on the new jet will receive an entirely different experience than those flying on older Lufthansa A380s. The updated cabin features seating for just eight people, creating "a much greater sense of comfort and exclusivity."

Adding to the sense of exclusivity are the privacy walls installed between the cabin's middle seats. Passengers can raise these dividers at will to give themselves more personal space, while the barriers can be lowered if they wish to talk to their seatmate.

One of the defining features of the new cabin is that it does not have any overhead bins, resulting in a space that feels much more expansive. First class travelers can instead store their items in full-size lockers, which are equipped with hangers and a garment bag.

The new A380's first class lavatory is notable as well, as it contains the first airline urinal in the world. The spacious restroom also contains a standard toilet, a bench, a full-size sink and a large mirror.
