Austrian-German actor Christoph Waltz is sporting a beard and he wants you to know: Lufthansa is to blame. Is this Lufthansa’s subtle way of nudging passengers to shift to trains for domestic travel?
Christoph Waltz Says His Beard Is A “Fierce Protest” Against Lufthansa
Waltz appeared on Bill Maher’s Real Time program on Friday and during his interview, was asked about his beard. After making a joke that as long as the ship was going down, he wanted to resemble the captain of the Titanic, he shifted to Lufthansa:
Waltz says Lufthansa lost his bag on a domestic flight and in protest, he is not shaving until Lufthansa reunites him with his bag. The flight was on December 16, 2022…
“In Germany, where you shouldn’t take the flight anyway because you should take a train for environmental reasons, but the train was canceled.”
That’s hardly a surprise!
Waltz actually looks pretty good in his beard…maybe Lufthansa should keep his bag a bit longer.
