Around 113,000 passengers are hit as strike continues
Around 113,000 passengers will be hit as a strike continues at Germany’s biggest airline. Hundreds of domestic and European flights are grounded today as cabin crew walk out in a fight over cost cuts.
The strike is part of rolling industrial action threatened to continue until Friday. On Monday it hits Frankfurt (until 22:00), Dusseldorf (until 22:00) and Munich (until 23:00) airports, the UFO union says, forcing Lufthansa to cancel 929 of the day’s 3,000 scheduled flights to or from the three cities.
The airline is due to issue a statement to employees and the public at around 18:00 on Monday local time. It has already reaffirmed it is ready to resume talks. Passengers are urged to check Lufthansa’s website for information about which flights are cancelled.
Lufthansa group flights by Germanwings, Eurowings, Lufthansa CityLine, SWISS, Austrian Airlines, Air Dolomiti and Brussels Airlines are unaffected.
On Saturday, the strike forced Lufthansa to axe 520 flights, hitting 58,000 passengers. There were no cancellations on Sunday, “because on that day, most flights are private”, UFO said.
