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 has released the details about their ‘Trachtencrew’ schedule for 2016.

Celebrating their 10th Anniversary passengers will find these crews, dressed in their Oktoberfest best, on several flights over the coming weeks.   Two crews will be featured and will be seen on six long-haul flights this year.  In addition to the flight crews, ground staff in Munich will also be in the Oktoberfest spirit, sporting their Dirndls as well.   Passengers visiting the First Class Lounge will see a Dirndl pattern that is unique to the First Class Lounge staff (and don’t forget to get your ‘Oktoberfest’ Duck!).

As a matter of fact, if you are flying from Munich to either Toronto or Washington DC today (Sept 15), you’ll see them.   On September 20, passengers flying from Munich to Shanghai or Hong Kong will enjoy their hospitality.  On October 2nd, the Trachtencrew will be aboard the flight from Munich to Denver, and on October 3 from Munich to Boston.

In addition to the long haul flights, the Trachtencrews will also be found on flights to Europe.   Passengers will see them on flights to Birmingham, Belgrade, Cluj, Nice, Olbia, and Sylt.
