Lufthansa Fleet Boeing 747-8I Cabin Interior Class Configuration and Seats Layout
This Boeing 747-8I aircraft accommodates 364 passengers in a four class configuration.
First Class features Lufthansa’s new First Class suite, now situated on the main deck and limited to 8 passengers.
Business Class features Lufthansa’s new flat bed business class seat in 2-2-2 configuration on the main deck and 2-2 on the upper deck.
Economy class features individual television monitors.
The first class seat is a jaw-dropping 31 inches wide, 83 inches in pitch, and 81 inches in bed mode.
There are a total of 8 open suites in first class, all of which are located in the nose on the upper deck of the aircraft.
With the lavatories and galleys located at the back of the first class cabin, the best seats are going to be located at 1A and 1K.
If you’re traveling with a companion, conversation could be difficult while sitting across a wide aisle from one another.
With this in mind, couples or traveling partners might be more comfortable in 3D and 3G.
But really, seats 1A and 1K are the main reasons why the Lufthansa 747-8 is the best first class product; the privacy is matched by no other aircraft.
The 80-seat business class arrangement on the 747-8 is in 2 separate areas of the aircraft.
The best business class seats in the 747-8 will be in row 11.
This is because the lavatories and galleys are further forward from your seat and no other business class passengers will be walking past you.
Lufthansa 747-8 has 32 premium economy seats, each 19 inches wide and 38 inches in pitch arranged in a 2-4-2 configuration across 4 rows.
Seats 21A/C, 22D-G, and 21H/K are exit row seats that offer a lot of extra legroom.
However, they’re still “close” to the lavatories, though in actuality the lavatories are far enough forward that the main thing to worry about is the foot traffic.
The economy seat size of the 747-8 is the same as the 747-4, only instead of 272 seats, there are 244 seats.
Seating on the 747-8 is in a 3-4-3 configuration with 3 rows of 2-4-2 in rows 45-47.
The best seats, in this case, will be side rows 45-47 because there are only 2 seats per side.

Passengers traveling with a companion will feel comfortable on the seats 3D and 3G.
Business class of the lower deck has 8 rows of seats per 6 in each.
First section of seats includes 6 rows.
The only disadvantage of the seats of 4th row is close location of the galley and lavatories.
Proximity of the lavatories may also cause inconvenience to passengers of the seats of 9th row.
The second section of the business class contains 2 rows of seats that have 2-2-2 configuration.
All these seats are standard only proximity to the bulkhead and galleys may cause discomfort to passengers of the seats 10AC and 10HK.
Behind the Business class are located 4 rows of Economy class seats.
The seats of the 16th row and seats 18DEFG have less space for passengers’ legs because of the bulkhead position.
The seats 20A and 20K are considered bad seats as these seats have limited recline, have no windows and are located close to the lavatories.
The other seats of the 20th row have the same disadvantages: limited recline and proximity of the lavatories.
Premium Economy class includes 32 seats located in 4 rows that have 2-4-2 configuration.
Passengers of the seats 22AC and 22HK will take advantage of extra space for their legs thanks to the exit row located in front.
At the same time other passengers tend to gather in this area in order to visit lavatories.
The seats 22DEFG on the contrary have limited legroom due to the bulkhead position.
Proximity of the lavatories is another disadvantage of these seats.
Economy class located behind Premium class consists of 23 rows of seats divided into 2 sections.
7 rows are located in the first section and 16 rows in the second one.
The seats of the 27th row have extra space for passengers’ legs but are a little narrower than standard as they tray tables are in the armrests making them immovable.
The seats 32DEFG are located close to the galleys and this may cause discomfort to passengers of these seats.
Close location of the galleys will be also a problem for passengers of the seats of 33rd row.
These seats may also have limited recline.
Proximity of the galleys is the main disadvantage of the seats of 34th row.
Close location of the lavatories may represent problem for passengers of the seats 47BC, 47HJ, 48D, 48G and of the seats of the last 49th row.
In addition the seats 47BC and 47HJ as well as the seats of the 49th row may have limited recline that is why these seats are considered bad seats.
The Business class of the upper deck may accommodate 32 passengers in 8 rows.
All these seats are standard only proximity of the lavatories may be bothersome for passengers of the seats 81C, 81H and 88H.

Most of the seats of economy class have 3-4-3 configuration.
Passengers of the seats of 27th rowwill take advantage of extra space for their legs, but the width of these seats is reduced a little as the tray tables are in the armrests making them immovable.

The second section of economy class is located behind exit row and galleys.
That is why passengers of the seats of 34th row may feel some discomfort because of proximity of the galleys.
The seats 47BC and 47HJ may be less reclining and their close location to lavatories may also represent a problem to passengers of these seats as well as to passengers of the seats 48D and 48G.
