Lufthansa crew strike to result in 1300 cancelled flights

Lufthansa Cabin Crew Strike

Lufthansa Cabin Crew Strike

For cancelled flights, the airline should provide passengers with a document setting out these rights either by email or a leaflet handed to them in person, however, in reality, very few airlines actually do this, said law firm Bott and Co.

Lufthansa said Wednesday it was scrapping 1,300 flights as German cabin crew pressed ahead with a two-day strike, plunging passengers into travel chaos amid an escalating row over pay and conditions.

"Passengers can use the Deutsche Bahn in exchange for flights on domestic routes, regardless of whether or not their flight has been canceled, " it said.

The announcement of 700 flight cancellations on Thursday and roughly 600 on Friday come after a Frankfurt labour court denied Lufthansa's request for an injunction to block the strike.

"Lufthansa regrets the inconvenience for the passengers, " it said.

Chelsea started the second-half the much better of the two sides and looked as though they may edge their way back into the game. The Spaniard found it extremely hard to handle winger David Neres and the defensive side of his game has always been suspect.

Lufthansa said Wednesday it is putting together a special flight plan and passengers will be able to check their flight's status on its website. Frankfurt's labor court and the Hesse region's labor court - acting as an appeal court - ruled that the union had legally called on its members to stage the stoppage.

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. The airline has cancelled around 1,300 flights for Thursday and Friday.

Lufthansa Group airlines Eurowings, Germanwings, SunExpress, Lufthansa Cityline, SWISS, Edelweiss, Austrian Airlines, Air Dolomiti and Brussels Airlines will not be affected by the two-day strike.

As part of a dispute over pay and pensions, UFO has fought with the airline in court for months over the union's legal status.
