Lufthansa is Germany’s flag carrier and also the largest airline in Europe, both in terms of overall passengers carried and fleet size.
Deutsche Lufthansa AG is also the parent company for several other airlines and further aviation-related branches, among the most well-known are Swiss International Air Lines, Germanwings and Lufthansa Technik. Lufthansa's registered office and corporate headquarters are in Cologne. DW content related to the airline and its subsidiaries is collated below.
Lufthansa's pilots keep striking, hurting the companies' finances. But what happens if other employees lose their jobs because of it? Lufthansa ground personnel jumped into the fray in Frankfurt on Wednesday but instead of striking with their cockpit colleagues, they demonstrated against the airline's striking pilots.
The pilots' union Cockpit has announced a new round of strikes for Tuesday and Wednesday on short and long-haul flights. The union declared the strikes after the latest round of talks with Lufthansa yielded "no results."
