In a meeting between Lufthansa and representatives of Vereinigung Cockpit (VC) held on Thursday, both sides agreed to a series of meetings to continue discussing the gamut of issues that exists between them.

Though dates have been scheduled for these sessions, I do not know what they are at this point. The good news in all of this is that both sides see enough reasons to return to the ‘table’.

Translation? For now, the threat of strikes has diminished. However if these meetings do not go well, expect the Union to announce further strikes even though they are losing support in the court of public opinion in Germany and with non-Pilot Lufthansa employees.
