Pilots of the German airline Lufthansa, the parent company of Brussels Airlines, will stop working on Friday. This was confirmed by the German trade union Vereinigung Cockpit in the night from Wednesday to Thursday. The airline has now canceled 800 flights.

This concerns “almost all flights to and from Frankfurt and Munich”. Some 130,000 travelers have been affected, Lufthansa said. They can rebook their flight.

The pilots of Lufthansa and Lufthansa Cargo will stop working on Friday after their union Vereinigung Cockpit rejected a new salary proposal from the management. New wage negotiations have failed, despite an improved proposal from the company last week and final talks Wednesday.

The union wants to see wages increased by 5.5 percent this year and automatically indexed from next year. In addition, there are also tensions about the future strategy of the Lufthansa group, of which Brussels Airlines is also a part. New wage negotiations have failed, despite an improved proposal from the company last week and final talks Wednesday.

Lufthansa also criticized the strike action. “Employers have made a very good socially balanced offer, despite the lingering burden of the corona crisis and uncertain prospects for the global economy,” said personnel director Michael Niggemann. “This escalation is at the expense of many thousands of customers.”
