 LUFTHANSA INTRODUCES INFLIGHT 'FLYROBICS' VIDEO PROGRAM
 TO HELP PASSENGERS KEEP FIT ON INTERCONTINENTAL FLIGHTS
 NEW YORK, April 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Lufthansa German Airlines is offering a newly designed fitness program, dubbed "Flyrobics," on its long-haul intercontinental flights (those of more than nine hours). The 12-minute video to help passengers keep fit is shown on most flights from Germany to the U.S. and on other intercontinental routes worldwide.
 The fitness program concentrates on improving circulation in the lower legs to prevent the swelling of legs and feet that often occur on long flights. Lufthansa's Medical Service developed and tested the program in cooperation with the School for Physiotherapy at the Orthopedic University Clinic in Frankfurt.
 All of the "Flyrobic" exercises can be performed by passengers while seated, with slightly loosened seat belts. The exercises help relax neck, back and shoulder muscles as well as legs and feet.
 U.S.-bound passengers will find the "Flyrobics" video on Lufthansa's flights from Munich to New York and Miami as well as from Frankfurt to Miami, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Houston, Chicago, Los Angeles and San Francisco.
 Passengers on flights from Hamburg and Dusseldorf to Miami can also perform the exercises along with the moderators of the program, sports journalists Dieter Kuerten and Michaels Chapman. The fitness video is shown on all long-haul flights between Germany and Far East destinations, Australia, Africa and South America.
 Lufthansa pioneered the first inflight fitness audio program in 1976 with its "Fitness in the Air" program that was included on an audio channel. The airline then published the first "Fitness in the (Ch)air" booklet a year later that is now in its sixth edition and is available to its U.S. passengers on request.
