The dirndl-donning ladies and lederhosen'd men will appear on flights between Munich and New York, Chicago and Tokyo (last year it was New York, Charlotte and Hong Kong). We only know three flights for sure:
· 18 September New York - Munich
· 24 September Chicago - Munich
· 30 September Tokyo - Munich
The outfits change every three years, and for 2013 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. The men, on the other hand, 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.
