German Court Orders Lufthansa Pilots Back to Work
The strike, which began Tuesday, impacted over 140,000 travelers after the strike caused the cancellation of multiple long-haul flights on Tuesday. The strike was extended to cover medium- and short-haul flights on Wednesday.
“The strike of the pilots’ union Vereinigung Cockpit has ended,” the airline said in a statement on its website. “Lufthansa will return, to the greatest possible extent, to our regular flight plan and with it our usual reliable service,” it added.
The union, Vereinigung Cockpit, is in a long battle with the airline over pay and retirement benefits.
This week’s strike, which impacted roughly 1,000 flights, was the 13th in 18 months.
