EMIRATES is getting into the spirit of Oktoberfest this month with a series of Bavarian treats to be served on its flights from Dubai to Germany.
And while die-hard fans of the famously messy festival might think primarily of beer, Emirates has politely placed its emphasis on the more delicate of Germany’s traditional fare.
Snacks being served include savoury treats and pastries including Zwetschgenkuchen, Baumkuchen and Guglhupf (try saying that at 30,000 feet).
Emirates says it will offer 28,000 seats on its Munich flights over the Oktoberfest period – enough to fill four festival tents with thirsty revellers – in addition to its flights to Frankfurt, Dusseldorf and Hamburg. Prost!
