Morning

The Pilot Union "Cockpit" announced an hour ago, that the crews of Lufthansa Cityline and Eurowings are going on strike, starting today (22/07) at noon. The strike will last until wednesday midnight.

An earlier walkout two weeks ago forced Lufhansa to cancel nearly 600 Flights.

I just saw a CR9 from LH Cityline taxiing at AMS, so not all flights are subject to this.
This is again very bad news for the LH Group, another costly day for the books...

Lufthansa has cancelled a total of 990 flights until the strike ends.
That is 1/3 of the intra-european traffic of Lufthansa. It is not clear how many passenger are affected so far.

While Eurowings and Lufthansa Cityline are on strike, operations are running normal at the Lufthansa partners Augsburg Airways and Contact Air.

Pretty bad for LH!

Well it won´t be so bad. However a strike is always the last and worst measurement in order to get something though.
