LUFTHANSA Bringing The A350 To Major Asian Destination

Lufthansa has announced that it will deploy their A350 fleet to fly between Munich and Beijing.

Beginning on October 30, the A350 will replace the A346 that currently flies the route. This change will be in place through at least the Winter timetable that stretches between late October and Early March.

The flight numbers (LH722 ex-MUC and LH723 ex-PEK) and departure times remain the same.

LUFTHANSA Announces ‘Trachten Crew’ Oktoberfest Schedule and Other Highlights (Oktoberfest Amenity Kits!)

LUFTHANSA Announces ‘Trachten Crew’ Oktoberfest Schedule and Other Highlights (Oktoberfest Amenity Kits!)

As has become an annual tradition, Lufthansa has announced the details around their 2017 Trachten Crews as they begin to celebrate Oktoberfest.    For those of you unfamiliar with the Trachten Crew, it is a select group of flight attendants who celebrate the annual German harvest by wearing traditional Bavarian Drindls and Lederhosen aboard select flights during Oktoberfest.

This year, the team will be on the following long haul flights:

September 15:  Munich – Seoul aboard flight LH718

September 25:  Munich – New York JFK aboard flight LH410

October 1:  Munich – San Francisco aboard LH458.

In addition to these long haul flights, passengers will be able to spot other Trachten Crew on European flights to Dresden, Bastia, Amsterdam, Prague, Timisoara, Munster, Warsaw, Belgrade, and Brussels.

Lufthansa employees in Munich’s Terminal 2 will also be in the Oktoberfest spirit as well, and you’ll be able to see their Drindls and Lederhosen on display between now and October 1.

Aside from the new ‘Uniforms’ that will be on display, passengers aboard Lufthansa flights from Munich will be treated to special Oktoberfest menus that celebrate the holiday as well.

Passengers visiting Lufthansa Business Class and First Class Lounges in Munich will also have some special Bavarian surprises waiting for them too.   There will even be special amenity kits for Biz and First Class passengers flying from Munich.

LUFTHANSA Selling First Class Lounge Access Even If Not Flying in First.  BUT……

LUFTHANSA Selling First Class Lounge Access Even If Not Flying in First. BUT……

What has normally been ‘verboten’ has become a reality, at least for the time being.

Lufthansa is offering paid access to ‘SOME’ of the First Class Lounges if you meet certain criteria.   This criteria requires that you be a Miles & More ‘Senator’ and be booked on a intercontinental flight in Business or Premium Economy Class.

However, before you get excited about walking into the hallowed grounds of the First Class Terminal in Frankfurt, and all the joys that one derives from being treated like an uber VIP, not every lounge is part of this promotion.

Qualifying passengers can access the First Class Lounge in Concourse ‘B’ in Frankfurt, or the First Class Lounge in Munich.    The First Class Terminal, and the lounge in Concourse ‘A’ in Frankfurt are not accessible with this promotion.

Restrictions not withstanding, it’s still a great opportunity to experience Lufthansa’s First Class services on ground when normally you would not be eligible to do so.

The promotion is in place until October 29, 2017 and pricing is as follows:

Senator flying in Premium Economy Class:  €299, plus €199 per guest (including children)

Senator flying Business Class: €249, plus €149 per guest (including children).

You’ll need to show your boarding pass when you arrive at the lounge, and pay the Lounge receptionist upon entry.

Ducks are included with your purchase! 🙂
