Strike Cancels All But 32 Lufthansa Flights Today

Due to a strike by the ver.di trade union, nearly all Lufthansa flights within Germany and Europe have been cancelled today. Only a select few short-haul flights are operating, such as in Berlin, where strike actions should end by 2.30pm CET. In all, only 20 of the 1,650 planned Lufthansa short-haul flights on Monday will operate due to the limited flight schedule. The airline is offering free alternative bookings. Lufthansa Strike

In addition to the cancellations in Germany and Europe, there are massive flight cancellations and delays for long-haul flights. Of the 50 planned flights in Frankfurt, only six will operate; in Munich, of the 17 planned flights, only three will operate; whereas, in Dusseldorf all three long-haul flights are scheduled to operate as planned. Flights operated by Germanwings will not be affected.

The airline’s website says: “Lufthansa regrets any inconvenience to Lufthansa passengers caused by the threatened strike measures by ver.di and will do its utmost to minimise impacts on passengers. Passenger support and service has paramount priority. 

Passengers are kindly asked to please check the status of their flight before leaving for the airport. Passengers for flights that will take place please calculate extra time at the airport.”
