The union representing Lufthansa’s Pilots has sabotaged the airline once again by announcing a strike that is set to take up the better part of 2 days.
The walk out is set to occur from 1 PM on Monday October 20 and last until Midnight Tuesday, October 21 (Central European Time). The strike covers Lufthansa’s entire network and is not limited to just certain airports, etc.
The strike will affect a large part of the fleet, specifically targeting Airbus A320, Boeing 737 and Embraer regional aircraft. Lufthansa in their information is stating that 747 flights are affected, but that may be a typo. The Union’s own webpage only made mention of 3 types that I listed above and made no reference to the 747.
If your flights are potentially affected by this latest strike, please visit Lufthansa’s flight status page to look up your specific flight and for re- accommodation options.
In past strikes, the Union’s bark has been far worse than its bite thanks to Lufthansa Pilots putting their priorities in order and still flying their routes instead of listening to their own union. Lufthansa will begin listing which flights are canceled later today. You can check your flight’s status here.
