Ver.di Strike Leaves 7,500 Lufthansa Passengers Stranded

The strike action announced by the German trade union ver.di due to begin on Wednesday, 27 July, 2022 has already ruined travel plans of almost 7,500 Lufthansa passengers.

On Tuesday 26 July 2022, a day before the actual strike, Lufthansa had to cancel a total of around 45 flights in Munich and Frankfurt.

For example, Lufthansa passengers could not fly to Munich today as from Bangkok, Singapore, Boston, Denver, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seoul and many others.

A lot of passengers could also not board their flights to Frankfurt. Connections from Buenos Aires, Johannesburg, Miami, New-Delhi and others were also cancelled.

The long-haul flights were all almost fully booked. This means that the strike is already affecting guests who would have normally landed in Munich or Frankfurt tomorrow.

Lufthansa is currently working flat out to restore flight operations to normal in view of the upcoming holidays in Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg.
