Germany: Flight delays, cancellations reported at Hamburg Airport after unexpected strike by ground staff workers
The union representing Lufthansa’s flight attendants has intensified its strike action. Tomorrow’s walkout has now affected a majority of the airline’s flight schedule.
The eight hour walkout will affect Lufthansa’s operations in Berlin, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Munich & Stuttgart. The union represents over two thirds of Lufthansa’s 18,000 cabin crew, and is seeking a five percent pay increase backdated to January, after three years of wage freezes.
We (GTM) are actively managing every Lufthansa booking for tomorrow and will be in contact, if we haven’t already, to assist with re-scheduling your travel arrangements. However, should you have any concerns please do contact us at your earliest convenience.
Finally, as this strike action continues to affect more of the airline’s operations, and with no forseeable end in sight to the dispute, please ensure (if you are booked to fly with Lufthansa in the near future) that you do check in online for your flight.
