Lufthansa to Debut Allegris Business Class on Canadian Routes

For years, Lufthansa has been planning to debut the Allegris economy, premium economy, business class, and First Class seats.

The launch of Allegris has faced many setbacks since the concept was first announced in 2017, due to delays with manufacturing and supply-chain issues, amongst others.

However, Lufthansa has now revealed that it will launch the Allegris business class cabin on the Munich–Vancouver route as of May 1, 2024.

Lufthansa to Debut New Allegris Business Class on Canadian Routes

Beginning in May 2024, Lufthansa will debut its newest Allegris business class cabin on two Canadian routes.

As announced on the Lufthansa website, the first Airbus A350-900 with Allegris business class will fly from Munich to Vancouver, beginning May 1, 2024.

At first, not all flights will feature Allegris; however, on the Lufthansa website, you can clearly see which flights offer Allegris, as “Allegris: New seat concept” is displayed prominently in the search results.

Then, during the booking process, you can see the different types of business class seats available in the seat map. 

As it stands, Lufthansa operates a daily non-stop flight between the two cities, according to data from Cirium, an aviation analytics company. 

Flights that feature Allegris will be made known within three weeks of departure at the outset.

Lufthansa will confirm the availability of Allegris seats on other flights starting in Summer 2024, which is when it will also launch the product on the daily Munich–Toronto route. Lufthansa has also signalled that the Munich–Montreal and Munich–Chicago routes will also get Allegris in the coming months.

When the product is launched, passengers will be able to choose from a variety of seating options within the Allegris cabin, including The Business Suite, the Extra Space Seat with additional room, the Privacy Seat by the window, or the Extra Long Bed with a 2.20m reclining area.

Typically, passengers would have to pay extra for a special seat; however, it’s believed that no additional fees will be charged until the availability of the Allegris cabin is made available in advance.

How to Book Lufthansa Business Class Using Points

If you’d like to make a speculative booking on the Munich–Vancouver, Munich–Toronto, or Munich–Montreal routes, with the hope of trying out Lufthansa’s latest product, the two best programs to book Lufthansa business class award flights are Aeroplan and Avianca LifeMiles. That’s because both programs offer competitive award pricing, and don’t pass along carrier-imposed surcharges.

To determine the cost of a one-way flight between Munich and any Canadian city using Aeroplan, we’d need to reference the “Between North America and Atlantic zones” section on the Aeroplan Flight Reward Chart.

The distance between Munich and Vancouver or Toronto falls between 4,001 and 6,000 miles, according to Great Circle Mapper, which means that it’d cost 70,000 points to book a one-way flight in business class in either direction. However, the distance from Munich to Montreal measures under 4,000 miles, which means a one-way flight in business class would cost just 60,000 miles.

If you have a stash of Avianca LifeMiles at your disposal, a one-way flight in business class between Munich and Vancouver, Toronto, or Montreal would cost just 63,000 miles.

The biggest hurdle with using either of these programs to book Lufthansa business class is finding award availability. Your best options will be either booking far in advance, or within a month of departure.

Consider using the calendar search function on the United MileagePlus website to quickly search for direct flights with business class award availability, and then book with either Aeroplan or LifeMiles directly.


Lufthansa has revealed that it will launch its Allegris business class product on the Munich–Vancouver route beginning May 1, 2024. Later in Summer 2024, the Munich–Toronto, Munich–Montreal, and Munich–Chicago routes will become the next to feature the carrier’s latest innovation in business class.

Lufthansa has loaded the seat maps onto flights that feature Allegris, and passengers can now see which flights feature Allegris business class in the search results on the Lufthansa website.

If you’re able to find award availability, consider making a speculative booking and then check your account for any updates on new seat maps.
