Lufthansa pilots to strike in Frankfurt on Tuesday

Staff writer |
After announcement from the Vereinigung Cockpit pilots' union that they will boycott the long-haul flights from Frankfurt tomorrow, September 16, Lufthansa published a special flight plan this afternoon.

The plan is for all 40 long-haul flights scheduled to depart tomorrow during the strike to take place. It is thus expected that the strike will not lead to any flight cancellations tomorrow, rather just to a change in the departure times of 24 long-haul flights from Frankfurt. The amended flight times will be published on at present.

Passengers booked on to a long-haul flight from Frankfurt tomorrow are requested to inform themselves of the changed flight times as early as possible. Lufthansa is sending text messages and emails to those passengers who registered their preferred method of contact as such.
