We investigate infinitesimal areal deformations (A-deformations) of the first order under which the lengths of LGT-lines of a surface are preserved in the E 3 -space. We prove that any regular surface of the class C 4 of nonzero Gaussian curvature without umbilical points admits nontrivial A-deformations with stationary lengths of LGT-lines.
