Crew become waiters and waitresses on Lufthansa

Lufthansa Restaurant Service to start in full from August
Passengers in Lufthansa Business Class will be experiencing a completely new service on board long-haul flights from August. Cabin crew will adopt an additional persona, that of restaurant waiters and waitresses.
The flight attendants will “now adapt their service more strongly towards the rhythm of their passengers in order to individually respond to their guests’ needs and requests just like a top-class restaurant,” the airline enthuses.
After the flight attendants have welcomed “their” guests on board in person and by name, they take their orders and set the table with ceramic crockery. Meals are then served directly from the galley. Trays and flight trolleys are replaced by service plates.
After being introduced on Airbus A380 routes to New York JFK and Miami in June and July, the restaurant service will now be launched on A380 flights to Houston, Johannesburg, Los Angeles, Delhi, Beijing, San Francisco, Shanghai, Seoul and Singapore from August 1.
It will then be brought onto Boeing 747-400 and 747-8 flights from Frankfurt from October 1 and the A340 fleet from Frankfurt and Munich to Asia and the Middle East from October 25. Special training courses for around 4500 flight attendants have been running since May.
