Lufthansa flew Bundesliga side FC Bayern Munich to the US for the German team’s pre-season tour on a specially marked Airbus A340-642.
The aircraft, D-AIHK (c/n 580), features the club’s crest and ten of the club’s players including goalkeeper Manuel Neuer and former Germany captain Philipp Lahm. Lufthansa says the aircraft will remain in the scheme for a year.
The jet departed Munich on July 25, bound for Chicago as LH2570. Lufthansa has been the official carrier of FC Bayern Munich since 2004.
