After a successful trip to Frankfurt last month to obtain a special-edition coronavirus rubber duck from the Lufthansa First Class Terminal, a new special-edition duck is out…and calling my name.
New Special-Edition Porsche Lufthansa Rubber Duck
This month, Lufthansa is offering a special Porsche-edition rubber duck in its First Class Terminal in Frankfurt. It features a flight attendant duck driving a silver Porsche car (I’m not into cars…perhaps someone can tell me the model? Is this a Porsche 911?). Cute, isn’t it?
I’m sure it would look great on my shelf. I also expect the trip would generate a lot of traffic to the blog. But beyond the amusement of adding another duck to my collection and flying Lufthansa First Class again, I really have to ground myself in reality. A trip to Germany every time a new rubber ducks comes out? Talk about the pinnacle of unnecessary travel (and I’ve done a lot of “unnecessary” travel just for the sake of flying).
Truth be told, I have neither budgeted the time or points for another trip to Frankfurt. And as much as I like the duck itself and driving a Porsche, this particular duck does not have nearly the emotional connection that the coronavirus duck did.

But that hasn’t stopped me from thinking about making another trip to Frankfurt and from checking flights and award space…a new curse, it seems, every time a new duck comes out.
I appreciate little souvenirs like the Delft Blue houses from KLM and rubber ducks from Lufthansa. It’s not that they are beautiful or valuable, but they are linked to happy memories and those are the sort of trinkets worth hanging on to.
Will I go to Frankfurt? Probably not. But is that new Porsche rubber duck calling my name? Yep.
