Beginning yesterday, passengers visiting the First Class Terminal and Lounges in Frankfurt will have the opportunity to take the 2017 Christmas Duck home with them.

This continues a long tradition of special edition ducks that are offered during the Holiday Season. To see most of the Lufthansa First Class Ducks that have been issued over the years, please visit their gallery.
The 2017 Christmas Duck is available for as long as supplies last!
In keeping with tradition of acknowledging special events, LUFTHANSA’s First Class Services team in Frankfurt has unveiled a limited edition duck commemorating the Summer Olympic Games in Rio.
The Duck will be available to passengers who qualify to visit the First Class Lounges or First Class Terminal in Frankfurt beginning on August 5. These passengers of course include HON Circle members and passengers with a First Class flight either on Lufthansa or if connecting from Frankfurt to a SWISS First Class flight out of Zurich.
The ducks will be available as long as supplies last…..So change your travel plans if you need to! 🙂
To see the rest of the First Class Duck Collection, please visit the Registry.
The 2016 Summer Olympic Duck
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! 🙂
To see Lufthansa’s other ‘First Class Ducks’ please visit my Lufthansa Duck Registry.
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…….
