Lufthansa Business Class – Fly in comfort & style
Unfortunately, corporate travel policies do not always allow passengers to fly Business Class – even if they are affordable Business Class flights. However, even without Business Class allowances, companies have the option to send their employees on comfortable business trips – by using PartnerPlusBenefit rewards for a free in-flight upgrade.

Lufthansa Business Class and other travel classes
Most airlines distinguish between three or four travel classes:
- Economy Class for price-conscious travellers
- Premium Economy Class for more amenities
- Business Class affordable for comfort-conscious passengers
- First Class for the highest demands above the clouds
The classic travel classes are divided into different reservation classes with different prices as well as different booking and travel conditions. The classes vary in terms of service and comfort benefits before, during, and after the flight.
Lufthansa Business Class specials
Lufthansa Business Class is ideal for comfort-conscious travellers, who seek more privacy and want to arrive at their destination in a more relaxed frame of mind – two compelling points for business travellers. They can work or sleep in peace and comfort, allowing them to arrive at their meetings well-prepared, well rested and in top form. With luck, and depending on the timetable, they may be able to avoid having to spend the night in a hotel, which in turn reduces additional travel costs.
Compared to Economy Class, Business Class offers a much higher level of services and comfort. For example, Lufthansa Business Class passengers can check in at special counters, spend their time before departure in lounges, and enjoy a high-quality level of service on board during the flight.
- Business Lounges can be used to relax and enjoy some peace and quiet before departure, they also offer workstations with W-LAN and power outlets so that travellers can prepare for business meetings.
- On board, fresh and varied menus and a large selection of beverages await passengers.
- A W-LAN connection during the flight and generous private space around the seat allows passengers to use their travel time productively.
- Business Class seats on intercontinental flights can often be converted to a horizontal sleeping position, which is ideal for getting a good night’s rest on a long flight.
Fly Lufthansa Business Class affordably
A Business Class flight is much appreciated by business travellers, but it does cost more than Economy Class. That is why travellers often can’t choose their preferred travel class and must follow company guidelines when booking their corporate flights.
The option to book Business Class often depends on the duration of the flight or stay. As a result, it is sometimes impossible to take advantage of affordable Business Class flights within Europe, because the flight or stay is deemed too short.
Lufthansa Business Class flights for Miles or Points
Most business travellers earn many miles on their corporate trips with frequent flyer programs. If a traveller has earned enough miles, these can be redeemed for benefits, such as upgrades from Economy Class to the now-affordable Lufthansa Business Class.
With PartnerPlusBenefit, companies earn additional BenefitPoints, which can also be used for affordable upgrades, like personal Miles & More miles. This makes it possible for companies to save the costs for a Business Class flight, while still rewarding their employees with all the amenities of a Business Class flight. Best of all, BenefitPoints can also be used for upgrades from Business to First Class.
