Either way, these traditional dirndls (in Lufthansa's signature yellow, blue, and white) are probably a little more conservative and definitely more tasteful (but still plenty appealing). Meanwhile, the dude flight attendants will wear leather trousers and a waistcoast with a jacket. Whatever.
Actually, the Oktoberfest experience begins before take-off at the airline's lounges, which will be plating delicious themed fare like pretzels, cheese and meat, and apple strudel. On board, First Class fliers even get gourmet duck and a shredded pancake called Kaiserschmarrn.
"The folk costume flights are a lively tradition at Lufthansa, and one which passengers really enjoy", a company spokesperson told Malta Today. "The response from our guests is overwhelming." Shocking.
