Inside Lufthansa’s Airbus A340-300 – A Guided Tour - Simple Flying


In July, Lufthansa invited Simple Flying to discover how it was adapting to the current situation. As part of the experience, we got to learn how aircraft are reactivated, and also to tour one of the airline’s Airbus A340-300 aircraft. Let’s take a look inside!

Business class at the front

While Lufthansa does offer a first-class cabin on some aircraft, this is not the case on the Airbus A340-300. As such, the plane that we toured was in a three-class configuration. Airlines typically place their most premium cabins at the front of the aircraft, with the lowest-paid passengers towards the rear of the plane.

Lufthansa doesn’t buck from the trend with its Airbus A340-300 fleet. As such, the business class is located at the front of the aircraft. According to Lufthansa, there are three layouts of the Airbus A340-300. The plane we visited had 30 such seats. These were located in between the first and second set of doors with galleys at either end.
