Lufthansa Introduces Sleeper’s Row For Passengers To Lie Down

Lufthansa’s new “Sleeper’s Row” perk allows flyers to upgrade to an entire row of three to four seats for the duration of long haul flights that usually span 11 hours or more. Imagine having an entire row of seats to yourself, just so you could sleep like baby mid-air, and feel refreshed on landing. At Lufthansa, this is a sure shot thing. While this sounds like a genie answered all your prayers, passengers taller than 6 feet might have some problem. Seats on the Lufthansa 747 are just 17 inches wide. This would mean that even after combining 4 seats, it would measure only 5’6″. So it might not be that comfortable for tall people.
