Lufthansa cancels 1,300 flights due to staff strike

Lufthansa Airlines, Germany, will cancel about 1,300 flights due to a strike by its pilots and cabin crew. It is expected that this will affect 180 thousand passengers. The strike will last two days – November 7 and 8.

On Friday, a massive demonstration of flight attendants is scheduled at the Lufthansa headquarters near the Frankfurt International Airport. Crew members demand higher salaries and better working conditions.

The management of Lufthansa tried to obtain a legal ban on employee protests. However, a labour court dismissed the airline’s lawsuit on Wednesday. Lufthansa intends to appeal the decision.

In October 2019, strikes were conducted by employees of four Lufthansa-related airlines, including Eurowings and Germanwings. Then the flights at the airports of Berlin, Munich, Frankfurt and Dusseldorf were canceled.
