Union throws double-strike at airline in ongoing dispute
As reported, Lufthansa pilots are already on strike on the airline’s short-haul and mid-length routes from 13:00 on October 20 to 23:59 on October 21.
Now, in a statement issued this morning, the German pilots’ union VC is also calling for a strike to hit Lufthansa’s long-haul routes on October 21, from 06:00 to 23:59 local time.
The pilots are in dispute with the airline’s management over retirement benefits.
