Lufthansa Revamps On-Board Offerings for Long-Haul Flights

Our Thoughts

Passengers in economy and premium economy receive a three-course main meal and complimentary beverages, but will soon be able to purchase additional snacks and spirits as part of Lufthansa’s Onboard Delights menu.

Lufthansa is set to begin charging passengers in long-haul economy and premium economy cabins for snacks and spirits beginning December 1.

Passengers in these cabins already receive a three-course main meal (as well as a cold vegetarian snack) and complimentary beverages, but will soon be given the option of purchasing additional snacks and spirits as part of the carrier’s Onboard Delights menu.

The most significant change to note is that Lufthansa will no longer offer free liquor in long-haul economy or premium economy. However, the airline will still offer complimentary beer and wine, and a wide variety of high-quality spirits will be available for purchase.

Onboard Delights can only be ordered on board and paid for by credit or debit card as well as by Apple Pay or V-Pay. Booking in advance is not possible.

This new service will be available on 37 long haul routes as of December 1, including flights to North America, South America, Asia, and South Africa. This service will then be available on all long-haul routes by the spring of 2022.

Earlier this year the airline launched a buy-on-board offering for economy class passengers on short- and medium-haul flights.
