LUFTHANSA’S PILOTS FOR JOB WALKOUT AS SHOWCASING STRIKE
A well known brand in the realm of airlines, Lufthansa is going under a pressure phase as all its pilots, who are running flights through Munich, have announced a strike on 10th September ’14. To make pace under this situation Lufthansa has made a provision for the customer tickets as pilots will be on a job walk off from 10:00 Am to 06:00 Pm, according to local time.
This airlines company showcased a ‘Special Flight Schedule’, which was posted on the late evening of 9th September ’14. This attempt was made to ease the journey of fliers who were to fly through Munich the next day. The airlines still managed to save a few pilots as they themselves volunteered to fly the flights even though the strike is still persistent.
All through this, the airlines has still warned delays in long-haul flights and announced to cancel approximately 110 intra-Europe flights having their route through Munich and it is doomed to affect more than 13,500 passengers.
This strike was initiated by the Vereinigung Cockpit Union, which represents the pilots from Lufthansa group. Earlier this year, in April a 3 day strike by pilots from Lufthansa ended up losing 60 million Euros. Reason behind this unconventional strike is believed to be based on the unattended plea of pilots who wish to retire early.
This strike has caused severe inconveniences to many passengers, as it is a final holiday season in Bavaria.
