As part of their Oktoberfest celebration each year, Lufthansa enlists their special ‘Trachten Team’ to bring the Holiday aboard certain flights during September. The theme around this year’s costumes will be based on the styles worn in the 1950s to acknowledge Lufthansa’s 60th Anniversary.
For 2015, Lufthansa has announced the follow flights are scheduled to be operated with these special crews:
Munich – Charlotte on September 16
Munich – Vancouver on September 21
Munich – Dubai September 29
These were the initial dates announced by LH. I’m not sure if there will be additional destinations added to this schedule. Additionally, First Class passengers on all outbound flights from Munich will have a special Oktoberfest Menu during the ‘season.
Complimenting these international flights, LH will also have flight attendants sporting their Oktoberfest Drindls and Lederhosen on domestic and European flights during September as well, though I have not seen any details regarding which flights these would be.
Aside from the on-board experience, all lounge visitors in Munich will also be welcomed with special Oktoberfest menus and treats.
First Class Lounge guests can look forward to Oxtail Pralines and Wheat Beer Tiramisu while Senator and Business Lounge guests will be able to get their fill of Apfel Strudel and other delicacies.
If you are visiting the FCL in Munich, don’t forget your special ‘Bavarian Duck’!
