Lufthansa Strike Starts Monday 22nd February

Feb 21st, 2010 | By

For any of you flying on Lufthansa this week you should check with the airline about your flight. The pilots union is striking for 4 days and something like 1,200 flights out of 1,800 will be cancelled each day so not every flight is affected. A number of flights from Birmingham, Dublin, London City, Heathrow, Manchester and Newcastle to German destinations will be flying but you need to check the Lufthansa website,, to see if they are still scheduled to fly. This also affects their Germanwings subsidiary,
Lufthansa has issued a special flight schedule during this week and you will find a link to this on the home page on their website. As we all know with strikes, things can change at the last minute so check as well just before you leave for the airport.
If your flight is cancelled, Lufthansa will refund your money or rebook you, free of charge, to another date.
