Is my flight attendant wearing lederhosen? Maybe! As part of the Oktoberfest celebration, flight attendants will be wearing traditional German clothing on select Lufthansa flights.

With Oktoberfest just around the corner, Lufthansa flight attendants won't be wearing their regular uniforms. Instead, they'll be wearing  traditional lederhosen and dirndl on select flights between Munich and New York, Chicago, and Tokyo. This isn't the first time Lufthansa has done thing. The special "Oktoberfest crew" have been part of a traditional that has been popular with passengers over the past few years. The crew includes 14 member, 12 women and two men.  On 18 September they will take off for New York, on 24 September for Chicago and on 30 September for Tokyo.

 "The response from our passengers has been overwhelming. That is why we are taking up the Oktoberfest theme again - on the ground and in the air," said Thomas Klühr, Chief Financial Officer & Hub Munich Lufthansa German Airlines.

The costumes are specially designed for the flight attendants as they have reflect Lufthansa's corporate colors-royal blue, yellow and white. The dirndl, or a dress for the female flight attendants is mostly yellow with blue printed flowers and a blue and white striped skirt. The male flight attendants will wear lederhosen, combined with a traditional Bavarian jacket called a  janker and a waistcoat.

The airline will also be celebrating Oktoberfest in other ways. You don't have to fly to Munich for the annual bierfest. You can enjoy a mini version in business class as the airline will offer culinary specialties like like landjäger and radi (cold smoked sausage with radish), knödel with schwammerl (potato dumplings with mushrooms) and Bavarian beer of course. The audio channel will also have a special program devoted to Bavarian music to get passengers into the swing of the Oktoberfest.
