Lufthansa Pilot Strike 2014 Almost Over

Frankfurt airport is quite not so busy since the Lufthansa’s pilots’  strike   started last April 2. I heard this news over the  radio a lot of  times and also read it on  German local newspapers. I also watched some news about  the  3-day strike of  Lufthansa’s pilots in the television. It started last April 2 and will end April 4, 2014   at  midnight.  The said strike is said to be over  early retirement of the pilots.

According to the news I  read on the newspaper, this strike affected almost half a million pf passengers  around the globe since  Lufthansa has cancelled 3,800 flights during the duration of the strike. The pilots’ walkout is the largest ever to hit the airline and the third strike at Frankfurt airport.

This strike affected a lot of passengers and businesses not only in Germany but also around the globe.This stoppage is  said to cost tens of millions of Euros lost.

It is also mentioned that Lufthansa’s flight schedules will return to normal before Saturday. The news I watched in  the  television  almost an hour ago,  also showed some  images of the passengers who are already getting  ready for their  flight starting  this midnight.

Analysts estimate the strike could cost the airline as much as 50 million euros ($69 million) in lost profit.

Good luck to the negotiation between the pilots and the  Lufthansa, Germany’s biggest airline. To all passengers who will fly and will be resuming their cancelled flights during the strike, have a safe fly to you all!

I am glad that my flight will commence in the third week of April 2014. Frankfurt airport, I am coming soon too! Hoping that everything will be fine that week.

    It’s important that airline management should listen to whatever grievances of the personnel that make up the entire airline operation to avoid future strike and lost millions of profit.
