Lufthansa’s Bavarian return

For the sixth year in succession Lufthansa is dressing crews in traditional Bavarian costume in flights to Munich from San Francisco, Montreal and São Paulo in the run up to the Oktoberfest.

This time around, the 14-strong inflight team will be heading for three destinations.  The first flight, on 13 September, will take them to San Francisco.  On 22 September, they will depart for Montreal, and on 28 September for São Paolo.  Until 2 October, which marks the end of the famous beer festival, the traditional-look Lufthansa crew will bring a touch of Bavaria to selected international flights.

During the Oktoberfest the traditional Bavarian colours will also be the colour theme on all long haul Lufthansa flights to and from Munich.  Passengers travelling in First Class will be offered a traditional Oktoberfest menu including Munich white sausage terrine and other Bavarian specialities.  To accompany their meal, passengers can request a glass of the renowned Oktoberfest beer.  Traditional Bavarian delicacies will also be served in Business and Economy Class.  Meanwhile, on the audio channel, a special programme will be devoted to Bavarian music to get passengers into the swing of what is known in Bavaria as the "fifth" season of the year. www.lufthansa.com
