The dirndl-donning ladies and lederhosen'd men will appear on flights from MUC to Hong Kong, Charlotte and New York/Newark. We only know three flights for sure right now:
· Friday, September 21. LH 412 Munich-Newark.
· Friday, September 28. LH 428 Munich-Charlotte.
· Saturday, September 29. LH 429 Charlotte-Munich.
The outfits change every year, and for 2012 the girls will sport a blouse of yellow fabric with a blue floral print, with a blue-and-white striped skirt and blue silk apron. For the first time, the men will slip into leather...Lederhosen to be specific. They'll wear the traditional pants with a "Janker," the Bavarian-style jacket, and their ties will match the dirndls.
