Lufthansa To Cancel 929 Flights On Monday

Lufthansa Airlines

Lufthansa said on Sunday it would cancel 929 flights affecting 113,000 passengers on Monday. The cancellations arrive as cabin crew members continue to strike following a walk-out at three of the German airline’s major airports.

The strike is part of a week of action organized by cabin crew union UFO. The union is pushing for better early retirement benefits and pensions for thousands of workers.

The strike will affect both short- and long-haul flights under the Lufthansa brand. The flights are located at Frankfurt, Munich and Dusseldorf airports.

Union officials began engaging in talks with Lufthansa officials on Friday.

Lufthansa is trying to negotiate with various staff groups to bring down costs to compete better with low-cost rivals and wealthy Gulf carriers.

The airline said its top officials will meet on Monday to discuss the union’s demands.

The company’s subsidiaries, including Austrian Airlines, Germanwings, Eurowings, and Swiss are not affected by the strike.
