LUFTHANSA:  Strike Spreads To Long Haul Flights

LUFTHANSA: Strike Spreads To Long Haul Flights

In what was orginally designed to impact flights flown by medium and short-haul aircraft, the strike called by Lufthansa’s Pilot Union has now spread to the long haul fleet.

In an updated timetable from LH, most if not all of their long haul flights departing Frankfurt and a few from Munich are cancelled for Tuesday,October 21, 2014.   You can find the most updated timetable reflecting the cancellations here.

Most flights scheduled to depart LH’s long-haul gateways (North America, Asia, etc) on October 21 are scheduled to operate their flights to Frankfurt, Munich and Dusseldorf.   Most of the aircraft will be spending the night at their gateway cities tonight due to cancellations today making them available to fly back tomorrow.

However there are a few cancellations in that group including Johannesburg-FRA, Hong Kong – FRA,  Sao Paulo – FRA, Shanghai – FRA and Seoul – MUC.   There may be others so PLEASE check the link provided above or to check a specific flight, please use Lufthansa’s Flight Status Tool.
