Lufthansa passengers in Germany are again facing delays and cancellations as pilots continue their strike. So far, the strike over pay has cost Lufthansa some 75 million euros.
Pilots at Lufthansa subsidiary Brussels Airlines have announced strikes on Monday and Wednesday as they seek higher wages. Three-quarters of all flights were expected to be canceled, the carrier said.
Several hundred flights from Germany's main airports have been canceled, affecting an estimated 90,000 passengers. Public sector workers across the country are demanding a pay rise of six percent.
The French government has raised the pressure on Air France managers and unions, saying the state won't come to the carrier’s rescue as it grapples with worker strikes and a leadership vacuum.
Lufthansa has canceled hundreds of flights on Tuesday, as Germany braces for mass public sector strikes. Germany's largest airport in Frankfurt has warned of "significant delays and cancellations."
