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.┬áSomething 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. ­čśë
