Lufthansa Ground Staff goes on Strike; cancels more than 1000 flights

Well, Frankfurt and Munich airport are living their worst days now. The german sindicate for Lufthansa has launched a Strike, effective tomorrow, that will affect basically almost every flight. This will actually kill like 140,000 passengers (including myself). The reason: salary things.

This will also be a new episode of the chaos taking place in Frankfurt Airport, and in the european airports.

So, I’m terribly sorry for the members here who were affected by this. But yeah, workers being workers :/

Indeed, they cant even find alternatives or answer a phone. The only options are “cancelling trip” or “cancel with reefund”

Hopefully I can fly with United once I arrive to MEX (connection to FRA)

I’m just staying away from Europe for now

Man, I am absolutely thankful that my family and I flew on Lufthansa before the strike! Feel bad for those passengers who are stranded.

Can’t tell if you’re very young or very right-wing, but industrial action is more than that. If we’re going to love aviation, we need to appreciate those that make it happen and—sometimes annoyingly to us—their sub-par working conditions.

I’m booked on two Lufthansa flights on Friday. I’m curious whether I’ll be affected by any after-effects of this. It should be fine, but as I was saying to @Moritz already, worst case is that I get an extra day of vacation in Copenhagen or Munich on Lufthansa’s expenses, so I’m really relaxed 😊

All flights lufthansa flights from LAX to Frankfurt and Munich have been canceled :(

We’re overbooked at LOT and Lufthansa is sending us more passengers. I guess it isn’t easy finding 400 seats in 3 hours
