    I seem to recall that the issues had gone to arbitration and mediation.

    Looks like they haven't worked out and solutions yet. Lets hope they do in the future, it's better for both sides on the divide, plus the passengers of course.

    Thanks for posting, uggboy! These 1-day LH strikes are a pain if you're caught in the middle on a booked LH flight. Here's hoping for a quick resolution! :)

    Not likely to happen. Can you imagine the screaming if Barack did the same here? :D

    The pilots have done at least seven labour actions in 2015. Angela has not acted ....and should not.

    UPDATE:

    Lutfhansa pilots' strike set for second day

    Lufthansa pilots will extend their strike to a second day tomorrow.

    The industrial action, protesting pilots' early retirement scheme, had been scheduled to last for 24 hours (see news, March 17).

    It is currently affecting Lufthansa flights throughout Germany. Services with the airline's Eurowings and Germanwings subsidiaries are running as normal.

    Looks like they haven't found any solutions yet. That's sad for both sides [employer/employee] and the passengers too.

    More coverage seen from a Scandinavian perspective:

    Scandinavia flights hit by Lufthansa pilot strike

    UPDATED: Hot on the heels of strikes by SAS and Norwegian, flights in and out of the Nordic countries are being disrupted by a Lufthansa walkout.

    The German airline has cancelled around 750 domestic and European flights scheduled to take place on Wednesday, with long haul services expected to be affected on Thursday as staff called for a second strike.

    Just over half of the carrier's scheduled 1,400 domestic and European flights taking off or landing in Frankfurt or Munich were cancelled, affecting around 80,000 passengers, a Lufthansa spokesman said.

    Flights between the German airports and Gothenburg, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Oslo and Helsinki are among those affected by the first walkout.
