Those flights not canceled will be flown by Lufthansa's other airlines, such as Swiss International Air Lines, Austrian Airlines, Eurowings, Lufthansa CityLine and Air Dolomiti, whose pilots are not participating in the strike.
Airlines no longer a laughingstock
The company estimates it will lose tens of millions of euros due to the cancellations. It is contacting affected customers via text message and email and allowing them to rebook or cancel flights at no cost. It is also exchanging tickets for domestic flights with train tickets.
Neither Lufthansa nor Vereinigung Cockpit could be reached immediately for comment.
