MUNICH, Sept 22 — Things are getting festive aboard Lufthansa Airlines, with beer kegs and traditional Bavarian costumes taking over international flights departing from Munich to celebrate Oktoberfest.

To coincide with the opening of the world’s biggest beer festival which kicks off this weekend, flight crew on Germany’s flagship carrier will swap out their uniforms and don traditional Bavarian costumes: Oktoberfest Dirndls for ladies and Lederhosen for men.

Moreover, instead of lukewarm cans of beer, the trolley cart will be loaded with a special “airworthy” keg that delivers fresh draft beer.

Business Class passengers will also be offered a special Oktoberfest menu which includes ox tartare with truffle, followed by char with Riesling sauce and Bavarian cream with pistachio pesto.

The special Oktoberfest flights are scheduled for September 25 from Munich to Singapore and October 6 from Munich to Shanghai.
