Lufthansa receives 5-star airline rating
FRANKFURT - Reuters
Lufthansa has become the first European airline to receive the coveted 5-star Skytrax airline rating, it said an accolade which it hopes will help it to continue achieving higher yields for its premium products.
Currently no European airlines hold a 5-star Skytrax rating, with the accolade previously being held by nine carriers including Qatar Airways, Singapore Airlines, Cathay Pacific Airways, ANA All Nippon Airways, and Etihad Airways.
As part of efforts to improve its business class appeal, Lufthansa last week gave a preview of its new business class seats and cabin that will be available on its Boeing 777 aircraft from 2020, with online reviewers welcoming the layout giving all passengers direct aisle access.
