Beginning this morning (December 11), First Class passengers and HON Circle members will be able to get their hands on a new-style Lufthansa First Class Christmas duck when they visit the First Class Terminal (FCT) or First Class Lounges (FCL) in Frankfurt.
These special seasonal ducks are available only while supplies last so if your itinerary allows for it, I would seek out this little guy before he’s gone!
The 2016 First Class Duck
As long as you are departing FRA in First Class on Lufthansa, or taking a flight connecting you to an LH or SWISS First Class flight on the same day you can visit the FCT. If you are arriving in Frankfurt in First Class on LH, you may have the opportunity to go to a First Class Lounge, but that will depend specifically on your arriving flight and whether or not you disembark near an FCL in Terminal 1. HON Circle members of course may access the FCT or FCL regardless of class of travel as long as they are on an LH Group operated flight that day.
Beginning tomorrow, October 16, Lufthansa passengers who visit the First Class Terminal in Frankfurt will be greeted by 3 new ducks that have been added to the wonderful collection.
What is great about the new additions is the fact that they are theme based and are targeted toward ‘certain’ kinds of travelers.
The 3 new ducks are the ‘Frequent Flyer Duck’, the ‘Baby Duck’, and the ‘Birthday Duck’. Each will be given out based on the passenger:
THE ‘FREQUENT FLYER DUCK’: Is available to all passengers who visit the ‘FCT’ but will be available for a limited time only (while inventory lasts):
This duck is ready for his flight!
The ‘Baby Duck’: This special duck will ONLY be given to passengers traveling with an infant or small children.
The ‘Baby Duck’
THE BIRTHDAY DUCK’: This unique ‘ente’ will be given ONLY to passengers who are visiting the FCT on their Birthday.
The ‘Birthday Duck’
Please note that these ducks are exclusive to the ‘FCT’ and will not be available in any other of Lufthansa’s First Class Lounges. If you want these for your collection you’ll need to visit the FCT and hope that you ‘qualify’ to get one. If you need help figuring out a strategy to gain entry, let me know!
Looks like I’ll have to borrow someone’s baby for a flight on January 25! 🙂

Got your attention didn’t it…..
Anyway, Lufthansa’s First Class Services has confirmed that the traditional Yellow Duck has been retired.
No longer will the yellow quacker go home with First Class Lounge and Terminal visitors as a souvenir from Frankfurt.
However, passengers will be given a sleek new silver version instead 🙂
The yellow duck is retired…..
The reason for the change is based on the fact that for the last 10+ years the standard duck has always been yellow and the feeling is that most of LH’s HONs have quite a collection of them.
This change applies only to Frankfurt at this time. Munich will continue with its current duck ‘strategy’.
What does this mean to special editions of the duck for Holidays and Special Events? You’ll have to wait and see!
It also means that your yellow ducks have become that much more valuable…….
To celebrate the Holiday Season this year, Lufthansa has unveiled a brand-new duck that will be available to passengers who visit Lufthansa’s First Class Terminal and Lounges in Frankfurt and the First Class Lounge in Munich.
This is the first time that this particular design has been used so for all of you Duck Collectors make sure that you get yourself to the FCT or an FCL and claim yours! They’ll be available while supplies last through Christmas.

The 2014 First Class Christmas Duck
Happy Birthday to the First Class Terminal!!
Ten years ago this week, the ‘FCT’ opened its doors to First Class Passengers and HON Circle members. Since then, the FCT has become a travel destination in it of itself and has been the source of many happy memories and experiences for thousands of travelers!
To mark the occasion, the First Class Terminal will be providing guests with a special, limited edition duck that will be given away for only 2 or 3 days (while supplies last). This Duck will perhaps be the most limited and thus most collectible one to ever be issued by the First Class Terminal, so if you travels include a visit to FCT in the coming days, make you sure come away with one!
Visitors will also be treated to an FCT that has just had a minor face lift. Guests will find new furnishings, accessories and flooring throughout the lounge. However, the great service remains the same!
