A warning strike by Lufthansa ground staff has paralyzed large parts of air traffic since Monday evening, and hundreds of flights were canceled on Tuesday. More than 100,000 customers could be affected. Passengers should not come to the airport.

Lufthansa passengers also have to improvise on Tuesday. Another warning strike at the company has led to numerous flight cancellations since Monday evening. According to Lufthansa, more than 100,000 customers could be affected. The strike is scheduled to last until 7:10 a.m. on Wednesday in individual parts of the company, but will generally end on Wednesday night.

According to Verdi, Lufthansa employees in technology, logistics, freight and IT went on warning strike on Monday evening. The union also called on ground staff in Frankfurt, Munich, Hamburg, Berlin, Düsseldorf, Cologne/Bonn and Stuttgart to stop work on Tuesday.

The company expects hundreds of flight cancellations. On Monday evening, the company canceled more than 50 connections at its most important hub in Frankfurt. Only a few intercontinental flights should still take place.

According to the operators, all 23 Lufthansa flights are canceled in Hamburg and Düsseldorf, and almost all in Cologne/Bonn.

Advertorial Simply invest

During the first wave of warning strikes almost two weeks ago, around 900 flights were canceled and more than 100,000 passengers had to reschedule. Lufthansa warned passengers on canceled flights: They should not come to the airport because the rebooking counters there were not staffed. The other airlines in the group – Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines, Eurowings, Swiss and the regional airline Lufthansa Cityline – can largely fly regularly, as the airline announced. Since the rebooking counters are not staffed due to the warning strike, Lufthansa advises passengers with canceled flights not to come to the airport. Rebookings are possible via the Lufthansa app or service center.

The background to the warning strike is the group-wide collective wage negotiations for, according to Verdi, around 25,000 employees on the ground – including at Deutsche Lufthansa, Lufthansa Technik, Lufthansa Cargo, Lufthansa Technik Logistik Services and Lufthansa Engineering and Operational Services (Leos). Lufthansa speaks of around 20,000 employees.
