Lufthansa Cancels Hundreds of Flights Due to Strikes

On Tuesday, flight attendants with Lufthansa went on strike for the day, causing the cancellation of 300 flights.  The flight attendants had gone on strike for eight hours last Friday as well.  The latest strike action took place in airports in Berlin, Frankfurt, and Munich and has resulted in 26,000 passengers being stranded.  The strike lasted for eight hours in Berlin and Frankfurt and 11 hours in Munich.


Klaus Walther, a spokesperson for the airline, said that they cannot just replace the flight attendants, so it is hard to cushion the impact of the strikes.  The strike action is over the pay conditions of the union members and talks between the airline and the union broke down last week.  The strikes could go on for weeks.  However, the airline’s Austrian unit, Austrian Airlines, is unaffected as their flight attendants are on a different contract.  They have been helping out their parent company, by using larger aircraft on their routes to Germany.
