Lufthansa provided an update at 2p CEST that includes information on affected flights as part of the strike that is schedule for tomorrow. According to LH, up to a third of all flights scheduled for tomorrow may be impacted.
If you missed the headlines, the Pilot’s union called for a 24 hour strike beginning at 12:01a CEST on March 18 at Lufthansa and Germanwings focusing primarily on regional and short-haul routes.
For passengers whose flights are involved, LH has made it relatively easy to rebook your flights. You can look up your flights under MY BOOKINGS on Lufthansa.com where you can see if you’ve been rebooked on another flight. You’ll also have the option to request a full refund of your ticket as well. If you were ticketed by a travel agent, it may be easier to deal with them directly.
If your flights were within Germany, you’ll also have the option of transferring your ticket to Deutsche Bahn and take a train to your destination. This can be done online at LH.com or at any ticketing kiosk at the airport.
