In addition to the costume crews, the lounges are also reminiscent of the Oktoberfest.
Classically, some Lufthansa crews also take off in traditional costumes at the time of the Oktoberfest. The huge folk festival will not take place this year – but the German airline does not want to give up its cherished tradition: As a homage to the “Wiesn”, eleven flight attendants will take the A350 to New York / Newark on September 22, 2020. At the same time, passengers on board Lufthansa CityLine can experience the traditional costume crews on numerous European flights. From September 21st to 25th, you can travel from Munich to Copenhagen, Helsinki, Manchester, Berlin and Vienna or to the holiday destinations Santorin and Sylt.
The tradition of traditional costume flights at Lufthansa goes back a long time: the first flights in traditional costume were made as early as 1957, and the idea was taken up again in 2006. Since then, the Lufthansa costume crews have flown to 25 destinations, from China to Japan and India to the USA. There were also destinations all over Europe.
The Lufthansa lounges in Munich are also continuing the tradition of previous years. In the lounges, passengers can choose between typical Bavarian dishes such as Leberkäs, cabbage or potato salad. There are also roasted almonds, pretzel pearls and Oktoberfest beer. Trout and Bavarian cream are served on board Business Class in September, and a wheat beer can be ordered on request.
