Lufthansa Cargo responds to strike threat

A statement from Lufthansa Cargo has said that while the strike action to be undertaken by members of the German pilots’ union, Vereinigung Cockpit (VC), tomorrow (23 November) will hit its short-haul, medium-haul and long-haul passenger flights, Lufthansa Cargo freighter flights will operate as scheduled.
Austrian Airlines and Eurowings flights will also not be affected and the German flag-carrier expects a total of 2,124 of approximately 3,000 daily flights operated by the Lufthansa Group will take place as usual.
A statement from the logistics arm of the Frankfurt-based airline remarked: “We deeply regret any inconvenience the pilots’ union strike may cause. Lufthansa Cargo staff worldwide will do their utmost to keep the potential inconvenience to customers at a minimum.”
