To mark the first airberlin Gatwick flights on 7 February, a traditional German band - "The Bavarian Strollers" - will be playing personalised requests, sent in via Twitter, with dedications being filmed and uploaded onto YouTube.
Anyone requesting a song will also be entered into a draw to win four pairs of tickets, courtesy of airberlin (http://www.airberlin.com), to medieval Nuremberg (http://www.nuernberg.de) - Bavaria's second city after Munich – or Hanover.
