Lufthansa passengers are in for some fun on their flights as the airlines crews are taking off in traditional Bavarian costume – just in time for Munich’s Oktoberfest.
As the yearly tradition, Lufthansa's cabin crews are wearing traditional Bavarian costume on selected flights from Munich instead of their usual uniforms.
Additionally, Lufthansa is bringing beer kegs on board to serve fresh draft beer to customers as this year’s special treat on these flights.
For the first time ever, the crew has participated in developing an exclusive Oktoberfest menu for Business Class customers, that pairs perfectly with the fresh draft beer.
This year, the first Lufthansa traditional costume flight took off from Munich, the Bavarian capital on September 19, heading for New York (Newark).
The second traditional costume flight is on September 25 from Munich to Singapore and the third on October 6 from Munich to Shanghai. There will also be crews in traditional costumes on selected European flights.
Passengers who land at Munich's Terminal 2 during the first weekend of the Oktoberfest will receive a special free Oktoberfest box containing a ribbon for a beer mug, vitamin drink, some salty pretzels, and fruit gummies.
