Lufthansa’s low cost carrier (LCC) unit ‘germanwings’ will have its pilots walk off the job tomorrow, October 16, for 12 hours between noon and midnight CEST. This is just another installment in whats become an all to familiar scheme to get Lufthansa to buckle to the Union’s demands of letting pilots retire early, with substantial and perhaps unrealistic benefits.
Flights to and from Berlin, Stuttgart, Cologne, Hamburg, Dortmund, Düsseldorf and Hannover are in the crosshairs for this strike.
Germanwings has not yet published much information regarding options that will be available to passengers, etc. If your travels include ‘4U’ tomorrow, please check on Germanwings.com throughout the day today.
