So much for a weekend full of negotiations……
Talks broke off between Lufthansa and their Pilots union and as a result the Union called for immediate strikes that are set to begin Tuesday, September 8 and continue through Midnight on Wednesday September 9.
Tuesday’s strike action will cover Long Haul Flights and will impact flights scheduled to take off or land between 8:00a and 12:00a Midnight. Lufthansa still expects to operate a bit more than half of their long haul flights (90+ are scheduled to take place thus far).
Wednesday’s strike is aimed at all short and medium haul flights, including those operated by Germanwings. Lufthansa currently has not published an updated timetable for the strike on Wednesday however the strike is set to run all day from 12:01a through 11:59p.
To see if your particular flight is impacted, please visit this dedicated strike webpage on Lufthansa.com. You’ll be able to look up your flights as well as choose alternative routing should your flight be affected by the strike.
I probably shouldn’t mention when I’m flying to and from Jo’berg……but lets call it November 😉
