  • Dialogbild

The dialogue picture is utilized in the specialist area of cabin crew at German Lufthansa AG. Flight attendants are facing the challenges of short-haul (both domestic German and European air routes). What expectations of service do passengers have? What are the critical moments? What moves the passengers before and after their flight? Above all looms the strongly contested market and Lufthansa’s competition. Flight attendants are changing their perspectives, seeing the situation from the passenger’s viewpoint and reflecting on their roles on board.

"The dialogue picture allows us to communicate with the crews about the different scenes. The crews find themselves in the scenes again and it is easier to go into the reflection. Viewing and recognizing scenes is the base for a common understanding. In addition, stories from your own daily life on board."

A flight attendant receives a rushed businessman with a water and maintains eye contact.

A negative boarding

The flight attendant brings the pilot a coffee. Another leans in the dirty galley reading a magazine.

A positive disembarking

A flight attendant bids farewell to the passengers using the local customs and ways.

A negative disembarking

A flight attendant ignores the passengers, instead checking their text messages. Their jackets are already in their hands.
