A strike by Lufthansa pilots represented by the Vereinigung Cockpit (VC) union, which canceled over 1,800 flights in Europe last week, has been extended through Wednesday, November 30, according to a statement from Lufthansa Group (LHG).
LHG has put into place a special strike schedule for Tuesday, November 29, and Wednesday, November 30, and is encouraging travelers to check the status of their flight before leaving for the airport on LH.com. The strike will affect all short-haul services from Germany on Tuesday and short-, medium- and long-haul services from Germany on Wednesday, LHG said.
On Tuesday, LHG plans to operate 2,184 of its 3,000 scheduled flights, and 2,110 flights on Wednesday. The extended strike will cancel 816 short-haul flights Tuesday and 890 flights Wednesday.
In total, over 525,000 passengers will be affected by the last six days of strike action since last Wednesday through a total of 4,461 flight cancellations, LHG said.
Other LHG airlines, including Eurowings, Germanwings, SWISS, Austrian Airlines, Air Dolomiti and Brussels Airlines, are not affected by the strike, and flights to and from Germany provided by other LHG airlines will operate as scheduled.
Customers whose flight is cancelled through the strike action may rebook (once) or cancel their flight free of charge, LHG said. Customers also have the one-time option of rebooking free of charge if they hold a ticket for a flight with Lufthansa, Austrian Airlines, SWISS or Brussels Airlines from, to or via Germany on one of the days affected by the strike. For routes within Germany, flight tickets may also be exchanged for Deutsche Bahn rail travel vouchers. Customers can find additional information under “Current Travel Information” on LH.com.
