German airline Lufthansa is the latest carrier to see its first class cabins get a makeover.

Lufthansa is the latest airline to upgrade its first class cabins in advance of the World Cup, media reports have suggested.

Bloomberg reported that a new first class package will be on offer next month to coincide with Lufthansa’s first A380 flight to Johannesburg, which will carry the German World Cup athletes.

The move follows similar announcements made by British Airways and Air France.

According to aircraft interior design expert Michael Oakley, the new-look cabin will feature brown and beige leathers and high-gloss wood.

Passengers travelling in first class with Lufthansa will also be able to choose food items from a new menu designed by Michelin-starred chef Holger Stromberg, including breast of quail on mango and peperonata chutney.

Other menu offerings from the culinary expert – who is the official chef of the German football team – include saddle of veal with cocoa, shallot compote and potato gnocchi and a coq au vin of spring chicken, parsley puree, Venus rice and pearl onions.

Earlier this year, the airline was honoured with two Business Traveller 2009 Cellars In The Sky awards, including Best First Class Sparkling Wine and Best Business Class Fortified & Sweet Wine.

The prizes were presented to the airline’s general manager Marianne Sammann in London in February.
