German media is reporting that the union representing Lufthansa’s pilots has called for a strike to affect Frankfurt Airport between 8:00a and 11:00p on Tuesday September 30.

Apparently this strike is targeting long haul flights operating from Frankfurt.

Lufthansa has not yet updated their website to reflect this, but here is the link that will provide the latest info as far as cancelled flights are concerned.

As a side note, Lufthansa usually gets enough pilots to volunteer to operate their long haul flights even during a strike so there is a small chance that the impact will be reduced if volunteer pilots come to the rescue.

I can sure as hell use one Tuesday to take me to FRA and then to JNB on Wednesday!
