The flights between Heathrow and Frankfurt are in economy class on Airbus A320 family aircraft with a 3-3 configuration. It is also possible to fly from Gatwick (also on A320 family aircraft) and from London City Airport on an Embraer E190 with a 2-2 configuration.

The long flight will be on a Lufthansa Airbus A330 which has a 2-3-2 premium economy cabin.

Lufthansa’s Premium Economy

In comparison to other airlines, Lufthansa’s Premium Economy is solid, but not outstanding. The reclining seats and legroom are above average. Still, cabin service and entertainment are almost the same as in LH’s economy class product.

In contrast to its regular economy seats, Lufthansa offers broader and more comfortable seats in Premium Economy, switching from a 3-4-3 / 3-3-3 seat alignment to 2-4-2 (Boeing 747 and Airbus A380) or 2-3-2 on its other wide-body aircraft. Furthermore, you can check two bags up to 23 kg at no additional cost. While the food is identical, it’ll be served on chinaware instead of plastic.
