|Quoting Alitalia777 (Thread starter):|
I am scheduled to fly from STR-CDG with Lufthansa Cityline on August 7th, and I am wondering if anyone has any idea how long these strikes might last. Should I worry about making my flight? Is there anything I can do now, such as trying to get it rescheduled? The remainder of my flights are on other Star Alliance carriers, but since that is my first flight, if I don't make it, I don't make the others
It can be suspected, that LH
will not touch your reservation right now before the first day of strike has been there and the real effects have become clear.
I can only be speculated how severe the disruptions will be.
There still are a number of days left in which the situation can be followed and analyzed.
If the strike becomes a solid one, I would try to get into contact with LH
(if they have issued the ticket) about one week in advance and see if there are options to reschedule/reroute you or even to rebook you on another carrier (either for the first flight to CDG
only or all the way to your final destination).
BTW, I am in a similar situation being booked on LH
on Friday, 08-AUG. This is the first flight (on a LH
CRJ200) within a series of 4 flights on that day on 3 different PNRs, with ZRH
the ultimate destination. Going to attend the ZRH
-A.net-Meeting the day after I am flying HAJ
and returning ZRH
While I still could book a nonstop to ZRH
, I would have to let go the other 2 tickets I currently hold on AF
in case I cannot make it to MUC
At present; I am considering to play absolutely safe and book a fullyrefundable ticket on AB
the evening before followed by a night in a hotel near MUC
(both are objects that can be cancelled without fees resp. for 10€ fee only). I will wait until Tuesday/Wednesday coming week and see what effects the strike has and then I will take the first steps for a backup-plan for my travelling to MUC
Carpe diem ! Life is too short to waste your time ! Keep in mind, that today is the first day of the rest of your life !
