Lufthansa A380 aircraft on runway

A cabin crew strike is grounding flights by Lufthansa November 7 – 8, forcing the airline to operate a special flight schedule. The strike is begin led by the Independent Flight Attendant Organization (UFO)

Lufthansa said that it will operate a special flight plan on both days of the strike, and that affected passengers have been transferred to other flights free of charge. Passengers should check the current status of their flight prior to departure, and enter their mobile number in their Miles & More profile or in their booking to receive automatic updates on further changes. 

The airline is also asking those affected by the strike to make use of the self-service facilities for their own rebooking, refund of their tickets or issuing rail vouchers. In the event of a cancellation, Lufthansa said that it will rebook free of charge, usually automatically, to another flight and inform the affected passenger via their mobile phone number. Rebooked flights booked by Lufthansa can also be rebooked once again free of charge.
