Strike at Lufthansa to Reach Munich on Monday – Over 500 Flights Cancelled

By  Sunday, 8.11.2015, 18:27    General News

The Lufthansa cabin crew union has been on strike since this Friday (November 6). The airports and flight from Dusseldorf and Frankfurt have been hit the hardest so far. The Union (UFO) have not yet expanded the strike to the airport in Munich because school was off, and many families are returning from holidays over the weekend. From tomorrow on, this will change according to a statement made by the Union’s president Nicoley Baublies.

The union calls its member to begin the strike at the airport in Munich from 4:30am on Monday, November 9. If the strike should last until Friday, November 13, as announced, that would be the longest lasting strike in the history of Germany’s biggest airline.

The most recent Lufthansa announcement about the strike is below:

The Independent Flight Attendant’s Organization (UFO) has announced strike action for all Lufthansa flights from/ to Frankfurt and Dusseldorf on Monday, 9.11.2015 between 4.30 and 23.00 and flights from/to Munich between 4.30 and 00.00.

Flights operated by Lufthansa CityLine, Germanwings, Eurowings, Air Dolomiti, Austrian Airlines, SWISS and Brussels Airlines are not affected by potential strike actions and will therefore run as planned.

Lufthansa will do its utmost to keep the effects of a strike to a minimum and to inform passengers as soon as possible. For that reason, Lufthansa requests all passengers early on to stay up-to-date by checking the flight status on

Tomorrow, out of the approximately 3.000 planned connections circa 520 continental flights will be cancelled. Affected by these cancellations are in total approximately 58.00 passengers.”
