Oktoberfest for Lufthansa

Lufthansa is taking off during the Oktoberfest again with a special crew in traditional Bavarian dress.  Flights from Munich to New York, Chicago and Tokyo will experience “Oktoberfest on board”.

This year a Lufthansa crew wearing traditional Bavarian dress will once again take off from Munich during the annual Oktoberfest beer festival, bringing with them a touch of local colour to selected long haul destinations served from the city.

This time around, the 14-strong in-flight team, which will be made up of 10 female and two male flight attendants, will be heading for destinations in North America and Japan.

On 18 September they will take off for New York, on 24 September for Chicago and on 30 September for Tokyo.

The “Oktoberfest on board” theme is not restricted to Munich.  In September and October, Business Class passengers on all long haul flights departing from Frankfurt, Munich and Düsseldorf will be offered a range of Bavarian delicacies and audio channel devoted to Bavarian music.  Executive lounges will also develop the Bavarian theme. www.lufthansa.com
