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 :/
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 😊
No, LH lost a star because they got their 5th for their announced business class after all. Since they delayed its entry to 2023, they lost it. They also scaled back service during the pandemic and those are the reasons, not the strike.
