Wenn sie können lesen Sie diese dann die Lufthansa flight attendant Informationen auf dieser Seite wird sie interessieren sie denn sie müssen in der Lage zu sprechen und lesen Sie Deutsch zu arbeiten als ein Lufthansa Flight Attendant.
The above in English translates to: (If you can read this then the Lufthansa jobs flight attendant information on this page will interest you because you need to be able to speak and read German to work as a Lufthansa Flight Attendant)
The first thing to realise about Lufthansa (the company) is that it is a huge organisation that includes five business segments, one of which is the passenger airline business. The other four are logistics, MRO, catering and IT services. The extension of this includes more than 400 subsidiaries and associated companies.
At the end of the 2009 year the Lufthansa group employed more than 118,000 people and had a total operating revenue or EUR 22.3 billion during that year.
The second thing to realise is that I should have put this next paragraph first... The web site or at least the Lufthansa jobs section is in my opinion a navigation nightmare. It was time eating, frustrating and to a point, ‘all over the shop’ in my efforts to gather summary information for you on this web page; particularly flight attendant, career and employment information. It would appear that a web designer has been given free rein without consideration to any web surfer. Anyway that’s my opinion and you can take a look via the flight attendant careers Lufthansa jobs link below.
For the historians amongst us, “Deutsche Luft Hansa AG” was born out of necessity with a merger of Deutscher Aero Llyod and Junkers Luftverkehr on January 6, 1926. It saw turbulent times early on and then faced a fight for survival during the war years until it was finally ‘hangered’ in 1945. The fifties saw Lufthansa again began operations in a very convoluted way before taking up development centres in Hamburg and Cologne, and then in Frankfurt. The jet age then encroached aviation during the 60’s and Lufthansa launched the Boeing B707 on their long-haul routes which was to dramatically change the face of aviation for passengers.
The 70’s saw the arrival of the widebody jumbo’s and from a passengers point of view, a whole new era of aviation travel with space, room to move and the thrill of travelling on a Jumbo!
The 80’s saw an era of bad hairstyles, beaufont blouses and shoulder pads. Operationally there was the increasing threat of higher and higher fuel prices and from Lufthansa’s stand point it had to really focus on becoming a competitive corporation in the aviation world. It was at the end of this decade that Lufthansa returned to their home town of Berlin.
The mid 90’s saw a massive effort to seek alliances in the effort to not only stay afloat but to prosper in the new emerging world of aviation with a strategic focus on innovation and quality. The turn of the century saw great changes and the company made a placement of orders for new aircraft including the big bird of the skys, the A380.
The present day sees further orders of some 20 Boeing 747-8s and as a consequence airline growth and a continual Lufthansa jobs demand for flight attendants.
The Lufthansa passenger airline business now transports about 76 million passengers a year and it does it with a long-haul fleet of Airbus and Boeing aircraft, a medium-haul fleet of the same brand aircraft and a short-haul fleet of Embraer, Avro RJ85, ATR43 and 72 and Bombardier aircraft.
Lufthansa alliances and partner airlines include the star alliance which groups 28 of the worlds leading airlines giving passengers on-travel to virtually any destination in the world. It also operates Lufthansa Regional which operates point to point across Europa through the carriers of Air Dolomiti, Augsburg Airways, Lufthansa CityLine, Contact Air and Eurowings.
Lufthansa partner airlines include: Air India, Air Malta, Cirrus Airlines, Ethiopean Airlines, Luxair, Mexicana, Qatar Airways and TACA.
Lufthansa jobs - Get on board as a Lufthansa Flight Attendant!

First up you are asked if you could join a team in under 15 minutes and for the best of my German language translation it then reads that - ‘If you like to work with people and are fast in being able to work in a Team, then you should think about joining as a Flight attendant and that they are interested in people who are flexible and can offer great talent to their work force.’
