Strikes at Lufthansa subsidiary airlines cause cancellations | News | DW



Collective action by a German cabin crew union disrupted Eurowings, Germanwings, Lufthansa CityLine and SunExpress flights on Sunday. The strike was initially set to last between 5 and 11 a.m. but is now expected to last until midnight German time (22:00 UTC), as the UFO union cabin crew decides to extend it on short notice.

The walkout affects flights operated by subsidiaries of Germany's flagship carrier Lufthansa, but not Lufthansa

Airports across Germany have reported cancelations. However, while UFO representatives described the walkout as "very successful" and said that more than 100 flights were canceled, Lufthansa's daughter companies said only individual flights were canceled or delayed by the strike.

A strike by UFO union members has caused widespread delays and cancellations at airports in western Germany

At least 15 flights from the German carrier Eurowings have been canceled at Berlin's airports, according to a spokeswoman.

Munich Airport reported 10 cancellations on Sunday morning.

"The affected airlines are making up with all personnel who are not organized [in the union]; we will have to wait and see what the day brings," a spokesman for Munich Airport cautioned.

A spokesman for Dusseldorf Airport, where four connections were canceled, also predicted more cancellations throughout the day. The airport is reporting that 60 flights are at risk.

Ongoing dispute [19659002] Lufthansa has called the strike illegal. The company also maintains that the union's new leaders, who took office earlier this year, were not properly elected and thus not in a position to legally represent staff.

UFO organized a walkout over worker's wages, company pensions and part-time work provisions. It is looking for a 2% pay rise for its cabin crew, after it won a 2% pay rise for a cabin crew at Lufthansa.
