Starting today Lufthansa cabin crew on some routes will celebrating Oktoberfest by wearing their finest dirndl (pronounced DURN-dul) – the traditional Bavarian folk dress/work garb often worn by peasants.
Most Provocative Flight Attendant Uniforms
The crew of 12 female and 2 male flight attendants will be on the Munich to Beijing route starting on September 15th, followed by Munich to São Paulo on September 24th and then Munich to Mexico City on October 4th.
The women’s dirndl features the traditional white blouse, yellow bodice imprinted with blue flowers, and a blue and white striped skirt – all covered by a blue silk apron. The men’s outfit includes traditional leather trousers, combined with a matching Alpine jacket, a waistcoat (a vest) and tie.
Apparently it’s not uncommon for women to wear dirndl during Oktoberfest events and chain stores, supermarkets and Oktoberfest tents often sell drindls for 50 euros, with high end retailers sell them from anywhere from 100 euros to 1,000 euros. Somehow the Lufthansa dirndl reminds me of St. Pauli Girl’s more mature, more modest sister. What do you think?
