When it rains, it pours.
The union (would love to use another term here…) representing Lufthansa’s pilots has called for them to walk off the job on Thursday, March 19. This comes in addition to the strike called for March 18 that targeted short-haul routes for LH and Germanwings.
The March 19 strike is set to target Long-Haul and Cargo flights. I haven’t seen the exact hours of the strike but I expect it to be a 24-hour walk out starting at 12:01a on March 19. I suspect LH will follow up with a list of affected flight once they sort out the details of the strike threat.
The short-haul strike for tomorrow has already caused LH to cancel 750 flights, impacting 80,000 passengers.
More details as they become available.
