Oktoberfest on board Lufthansa aircraft
The traditional Bavarian uniform will also be worn by the flight attendants on several European flights, which will be operated by Lufthansa CityLine. During the 5-7 October period, the Bavarian Oktoberfest uniform will be admired on flights to Berlin, Cologne / Bonn, Luxembourg, Pisa, Genoa, Amsterdam, Rzeszow, Timisoara and Cagliari.
Returning to the beer served from barrels, the tradition began in the 1960 years, with the launch of the "Lufthansa Senator" service. After 50 years, draft beer returns to Lufthansa flights. The barrels were specially designed to be used in airplanes even at 10 000 meters altitude.
From September to October, Business Class passengers on all Lufthansa intercontinental flights will be able to taste some traditional Bavarian food. The menu was made in partnership with culinary experts from LSG Sky Chefs. Among the dishes: veal tartare with truffles, Bavarian cream with pistachio pesto sauce, meat in Riesling sauce.
During the Oktoberfest, Lufthansa ground staff, working at 2 Terminal at the Franz Josef Strauß Munich Airport, will be dressed in traditional Bavarian costumes. And the Lufthansa lounges at 2 Terminal will be a big holiday. Traditional dishes and draft beer will be served. The traditional Bavarian white sausages and sausages will not be missing.
