The union representing LH’s cabin crew came out with an announcement today stating that their members will walk off their jobs beginning November 6 and lasting UNTIL November 13. This is not a typo or an autocorrect blunder.

Further details were not forthcoming so it is not known whether it is an absolute strike by all crew for the whole week which would paralyze the airline, or if there will be targeted strikes during the week. I suspect the latter.

In the past, the union would target specific service such as short haul or long haul service but typically not both at the same time. These rolling strikes would last 2-3 days.

The squirrelly union left itself an out saying should Lufthansa approach them with another offer, they would consider calling off the strike.   How very benevolent of them……
