1,300 Lufthansa flights cancelled as courts approve strike

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Lufthansa cancelled 1,300 out of 6,000 flights scheduled — 700 on Thursday and 600 on Friday after German airline failed Wednesday with its injunction application and subsequent appeal against strike action by the cabin crew trade union UFO. Frankfurt’s labour court and the Hesse region’s labour court — acting as an appeal court — ruled that the union had legally called on its members to stage the stoppage.

Passengers who had booked flights between German airports could turn their tickets into rail tickets in an online procedure, Lufthansa announced after the rulings.

UFO planned the warning strike to press Lufthansa for additional allowances at wage negotiations, citing what it claimed was management’s “ongoing refusal” to negotiate.

Disruptions could also impact Lufthansa’s affiliate airlines, including Eurowings and SunExpress.
