Strike to causes Lufthansa to cancel 3,800 flights

Lufthansa has been forced to cancel 3,800 flights due to a strike by pilots over pay and working conditions on Wednesday,Thursday and Friday this week. Some 425,000 passengers will be affected. Lufthansa Cargo flights will also be affected.

“The announcement alone has already caused significant damages since passengers have already rebooked flights and logistic customers have made arrangements with other cargo airlines to secure the transport of their goods,” Lufthansa said in a statement.

“During the three-day walkout by Cockpit teams, there will only be around 500 short- and long-haul flights by Lufthansa and Germanwings.”

Lufthansa is planning to use larger aircraft on routes from and to Germany “in order to bring as many rebooked Lufthansa passengers as possible to their destinations”.
