Lufthansa pilots to strike next week

93% of Lufthansa pilots have voted in favor of a strike which would start at midnight on Monday, February 22 and last for four days. The 4,500 unionized pilots seem to want a 6.4% pay increase and job security by Lufthansa avoiding outsourcing pilot jobs to lower paid pilots at regional airlines.

I’m betting the strike won’t happen. If it did, no one wins. Something tells me they’ll find a way to negotiate last minute. Lucky for me I’m only flying Lufthansa in about two weeks.

For once their slogan, “there’s no better way to fly,” may not hold true. 😉
