Upgraded Lufthansa first class cabin to include bed next to every seat

Passengers flying in the new first class cabin on Boeing 747 jets operated by German national airline Lufthansa will be able to enjoy both their seat and a separate bed, reports Business Traveller.

Unlike many premium seats, which recline to become a sleeping surface, Lufthansa's new first class provides each traveler with a bed and mattress that lies next to their normal seat.

"The window seats [in the current cabin] will be converted into full-length, lie-flat beds with a sleeping surface measuring over two metres in length and a top-quality mattress, guaranteeing first-class sleeping comfort," the company said in a statement.

Each first class bed features a comfortable mattress, and travelers will also be able to curl up with cushy pillows and a temperature-regulating blanket.

Additionally, passengers who are relaxing on the new permanent beds will get increased privacy and sound insulation thanks to special noise-absorbing curtains.

Currently, Lufthansa has not yet revealed which routes will be served by the upgraded Boeing 747 jets, although the source reports that passengers will be able to ride in the new first class cabin beginning sometime next month.
