With just five days to go until the start of the Oktoberfest in Munich, the designated Lufthansa crew members dressed in traditional folk costume are ready for take-off. The inflight team of twelve women and two men will depart Monday evening from Munich on flight LH 722 bound for Beijing. Other Lufthansa flights with the special “Oktoberfest crew” on board will depart for São Paulo on 24 September and for Mexico City on 4 October.
Lufthansa crew wearing traditional Bavarian attire will, for the first time, also be taking off from Munich on selected European flights. To mark the beginning and the end of Munich’s Oktoberfest, a Lufthansa CityLine crew will also be swapping their uniforms for dirndls. These flights will depart from Munich on 20 September for Lyon and Copenhagen, and on 21 September for Zagreb and Bremen. On 5 October, the traditionally dressed crew will fly from Munich to Zadar (Croatia) and Geneva.
The folk costume worn by Lufthansa’s customer service staff at Munich Airport has a new design this year. During the Oktoberfest, station staff can also wear the new folk costume instead of their Lufthansa uniforms.
