Even the air is better in first class on this airline
First class passengers need not rely on their air of superiority because they’re breathing superior air — at least on German airline Lufthansa.
The airline recently installed humidifiers in the first class of its Airbus A380s, bringing air quality up to par with the luxurious lie-flat seats and other services available in the premium section of the aircraft.
“[The humidifier] gives a totally different experience,” Lufthansa chairman and CEO Carsten Spohr told The Times of India last month. “Passengers arrive in a much better shape after a long-haul flight.”
Dry cabin air has been blamed for a number of maladies — though scientific studies on these are limited in scope — including for worsening jet lag and even for making airplane food taste bland. (Dry airplane air could be why a Bloody Mary is more appealing on a flight than in a Earth-bound bar.)
