Thus, three berths per flight are offered. To be comfortably installed on a berth, a traveler must pay between 159 and 229 euros per flight depending on his journey. A business class pillow, blanket, mattress topper are provided by Lufthansa. But also a special seat belt, which remains attached when the passenger is lying down.
