Special flight schedule published www.lufthansa.com due to expected pilots' strike
- United Arab Emirates: Sunday, February 21 - 2010 at 16:14
- PRESS RELEASE
As a consequence of the strike measures which have been initiated by the 'Vereinigung Cockpit' trade union, Lufthansa is making corresponding adjustments to its flight schedule from Monday to Thursday, February 22- 25. About two thirds of the affected Lufthansa-operated flights will have to be cancelled; however Lufthansa regional partners such as Lufthansa CityLine will operate their flights according to schedule.
Customers who have purchased a Lufthansa ticket for a flight which is operated by a partner airline (codeshare) will not find the LH flight number known to them in the special flight schedule. Since the partner airlines of Lufthansa are not affected by the strike, their flights will operate as planned.
Lufthansa is doing everything in its power to inform its customers as soon as possible and offer them alternative travel options. Passengers already booked on a Lufthansa flight during the period from February 22 to 25 can rebook once free of charge on another Lufthansa flight, if they wish to change their travel plans - provided their ticket was issued before February 18, the new travel date is before May 31, 2010 and their arrival and departure destinations remain the same.
Should a flight be cancelled, and the purpose of the journey no longer applies, passengers can cancel their booking free of charge. Travelers have the opportunity to regularly check the status of their flight at www.lufthansa.com under the heading 'My bookings'. A cancellation of the flight and the booking will be shown there. If a rebooking has been made, the travel alternatives will be shown there as well.
Passengers on domestic German flights, whose flights have been cancelled, can independently purchase a rail ticket for the identical route in the same travel class and later, together with proof of the flight ticket purchased from Lufthansa, claim a refund.
