Lufthansa has announced that its Vancouver-Munich route will receive the airline’s new flagship, long-haul aircraft – the Airbus A350-900 – during the summer 2018 season.
Beginning May 1, Lufthansa’s A350 will be operated on the daily flights from YVR to MUC. The route will actively use the A350-900 until the conclusion of the summer season on Oct. 27.
The aircraft has space for 293 passengers with 48 seats in Business Class, 21 in Premium Economy and 224 in Economy Class. Throughout the cabin, passengers can use their own mobile device as a second screen, as well as pre-select programs from the on-board entertainment system up to six weeks prior to flight time.
The aircraft also features an LED lighting system that adjusts with the day and night-time rhythm of the passengers.
