Flight is extremely important for Lobuche Peak Climbing. While you are going to Lukla or coming to Kathmandu from Lukla, the international flight will not leave on time because of the weather, so after finishing the trekking, you will need to take a private helicopter from Kathmandu to Lukla or Lukla to Kathmandu to catch the international flight. So you'll need at least two extra days to climb Lobuche Peak.
During this entire trip, you'll use different modes of transportation. From the beginning of the trip, when you land at Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA), private vehicles will come to pick you up, and the next day again, the necessary private vehicles will help you to go around the Kathmandu valley for sightseeing. Furthermore, for Lukla, you'll use the small twin-otter aircraft to land there for trekking.

There is no prerequisite; you should be accustomed to regular exercise and enjoy walking in high-altitude conditions.
It's not necessary to spend a lot of money on extra equipment and clothing before your trip. The majority of these gears can be bought at reasonable rates in Kathmandu.
