Emirates celebrates Oktoberfest onboard and in airport lounges

Enjoy the famous German fest from September 16-October 3, 2023

Emirates is celebrating the world-renowned German festival Oktoberfest, with traditional Bavarian cuisine and German entertainment onboard its flights to and from Munich, Hamburg, Düsseldorf, and Frankfurt, as well in select airport lounges, between September 16 and October 3, 2023.

The Dubai-based airline is celebrating Oktoberfest onboard its triple-daily flights from Dubai to Frankfurt and double daily flights to Munich, Dusseldorf, and Hamburg.

The vibrant celebration of Oktoberfest will see Emirates passengers enjoy a Bavarian starter, main course and dessert for both lunch and dinner across Economy outbound and in Business and First Class inbound and outbound, bistro bites in the onboard A380 lounge, and a variety of classic Oktoberfest dishes in the airport lounges, washed down with Loewenbrau liquid refreshment.

The appetisers

First and Business Class passengers will enjoy appetisers of Obatzda, Emmental and cream cheese with radishes, hard-boiled egg, and cornichons, followed by main courses of slow-cooked veal cheeks, accompanied by braised red cabbage and bread dumplings or fleischpflanzerl – a succulent minced beef steak served with butter, veal jus, mashed potatoes, blanched cauliflower, green beans, carrot, braised onions, and sauerkraut.

Classic Kaiser roll, Austrian roll, and garlic bread swirls will accompany meals. Delectable desserts in First Class will be Apfelstrudel with a dollop of vanilla sauce, while Business Class passengers will enjoy German apple cake drizzled with crème anglaise. Economy passengers can feast on roasted chicken with paprika, served with a delicious jus, potato wedges and braised red cabbage, followed by moist apple cake with almonds and vanilla sauce.

Bite-size Oktoberfest sandwiches available in the Airbus A380 onboard lounge will include cream cheese with chives, roasted beef with horseradish, grilled chicken with sundried tomato olive spread, Emmental with gherkins and the ultimate German savoury snack – pretzels irresistibly flavoured with rock salt and butter.

Pastry selection

Complimentary pastries include lebkuchenherzen, pistachio maamoul, cashew and pine nut blockage, chocolate and raspberry brownie, rhubarb tart, strawberry cheesecake, and lemon drizzle cake. Before landing, passengers will be given a parting gift of individually wrapped gingerbread hearts with Oktoberfest decoration.

In the airport lounges of Munich and Düsseldorf, an array of dishes will be available to Emirates customers, including Käsepätzle – the German version of mac and cheese, made with egg noodles, roasted onions and Emmental, light bites of Obazda and pretzel- a cheese delicacy, moreish potato salad with parsley, essential pretzels and flavoursome chicken thighs topped with parsley.

Passengers can have a taste of home with Emirates inflight entertainment on ice, featuring up to 45 German movies, 300+ Hollywood movies dubbed in German and a collection of 13 classic Bud Spencer and Terence Hill movies available in German, Italian and English – classic spaghetti westerns beloved in Germany such as Banana Joe, Die Miami Cops, Zwei außer and Rand und Band.

Music lovers can get into the Oktoberfest mood with 28 playlists and albums of German music amidst the library of 6,500 channels.
