Lufthansa presents crew in traditional dress at Munich
Fitting for the new Oktoberfest dirndls / Flights to Los Angeles, Boston and Dubai
Lufthansa is gearing up for what is known in Bavaria as the “fifth” season of the year – the Munich Oktoberfest. The by now legendary Lufthansa crew dressed in traditional costume will be presented to the press today for the first time. This year, female flight attendants will be sporting a new-look dirndl, created by the well-known fashion house LODEN-FREY München am Dom. The new dirndl reflects Lufthansa’s corporate colours – navy blue and yellow. The bodice and the skirt are navy blue, while the yellow apron has a delicate pattern with white daisy chains. Male flight attendants, meanwhile, will wear traditional Bavarian suits and a tie that tones in with their colleagues’ dirndls. On 16 September, the Munich-based crew comprising twelve women and two men dressed in the traditional Bavarian look, will take off for the first time for Los Angeles. On 26 September, they will then depart for Boston, and on 2 October for Dubai.
Lufthansa staff members first exchanged their uniforms for traditional costumes more than 50 years ago. In 1957, the airline reported: “During the Oktoberfest, Lufthansa stewardesses dressed in dirndls will be attending to passengers’ needs on flights from New York to Hamburg between 17 September and 2 October, and on flights from London to Munich between 21 September and 5 October.” On those routes, blond flight attendants wore pale-blue dirndls, while their dark-haired colleagues were dressed in pink.
