To Los Angeles with the Blue Danube Waltz Austrian Airlines

 

In time to commemorate the launch of flight service to Los Angeles, Austrian Airlines  adorned the Boeing 777 with the name “Spirit of Austria” with a 45-meter long line stave of the Blue Danube Waltz. One can see the prelude to the piece of music composed by Johann Strauss in the 19 th century, which, strictly speaking, is called “On the beautiful blue Danube”. This Waltz celebrates it´s 150th anniversary this year.

72 percent of passengers want the Blue Danube Waltz

From an international perspective, the Blue Danube Waltz stands for Austria, its culture and its long musical tradition. It is closely linked to Vienna and its culture of balls, and it is regularly played in Austria at the turn of the year. This piece of music has been heard during boarding and de-boarding of Austrian Airlines flights for years. In the meantime, it is closely associated with the red- white-red national carrier, and an integral part of the Austrian Airlines brand. An online survey carried out in the spring of 2016 confirmed that the Blue Danube Waltz has become an indispensable aspect of flying with Austrian Airlines: 72 percent of the 2,500 customers clearly voted for the airline continuing to play the Blue Danube Waltz on board Austrian Airlines flights.
