There are 26 A321s in the Lufthansa fleet which are used for short and medium haul flights. This aircraft cruises at a speed of 840km/h, at a maximum altitude of 11900m and has a range of 3000km. It has a maximum seating capacity of 174-190 passengers in a two class layout. The division between classes is flexible according to demand.
On European flights, Business class seats are 5cm wider than Economy class seats and the back rests in both classes have been made narrower to give a longer seat pitch. The middle seat in Business class will always be left free, giving more room and offering more space for storage thanks to a console. Rows 1-6 are designated as Business Class seats.
Rows 15 and 16 may be missing a window according to the Lufthansa page.

Lufthansa's new concept of blocking off the middle seat in business reminds me of Canadian Airlines -- twenty years ago. Certainly this does give you a bit more room to maneuver, work on the laptop, read a paper. But it doesn't make up for the fact that you have no more room for your legs than the person at the back of the plane. In fact, pax in row 24 have much more room than business class passengers. I hope that European carriers will "catch the wave" and give their premium customers a few more inches of breathing room in the future.

This is a comfortable plane for European travel. It is now equipped with the thinner NEK (Neue Europa Kabine) seats. For European routes, however, they offer good comfort and leg room. While the pitch is reduced to 30 inches, the clever redesign of the seat allows for tall blokes like me to sit comfortably. Service was crisp yet friendly on board with a hot lunch being served, some tortellini.

Would never pay for a business seat on this aircraft.
Sat in economy and the only difference was the meal service.The seats are exactly the same except in business the middle seat is unoccupied.Economy seats are extremely cramped and the meal was like a frozen TV dimmer.

Really it is not a business class. I am very upset from the seat and sure it is last time for me unless airplanes type are changed
