Over the past couple of years I’ve read a bit about the Lufthansa rubber ducks available in their First Class Lounge in Frankfurt. I don’t have any of these ducks and have never even seen one in person. From the photos that I’ve seen online they look like a fun, airline-related collectible.
I was hoping to get one of these ducks for Lucas but haven’t had any luck so far.
For our trip to the Balkans we flew to Serbia through Frankfurt on Lufthansa in business class. During our short layover this gave us access to the business class lounge.
While in the lounge I decided (just for fun) to ask at the front desk about getting a duck for Lucas. I thought that there was a small chance they would see such a cute little boy and pull a duck out of a hat for him. I got a smile and a laugh but that was it.
From Frankfurt, we flew to Vienna on Lufthansa and then caught a flight on Austrian Airlines to our final destination, Belgrade.
While getting settled in right before takeoff, one of the the Austrian Airlines flight attendants started making stops at seats where babies and young children were sitting. I saw her handing out a couple of toys. One of them was a book, the other I could not see.
The duck is a bit small and has the Austrian Airlines logo on it’s chest which is pretty cool. It might not be one of the hard to come by Lufthansa ducks but that’s OK and Lucas doesn’t mind. He loves his new Austrian Airlines Duck!
