Germany -Lufthansa strike grounds 1,000+ flights in spite of court injunction -September 09, 2015

The 13th Lufthansa pilots’ strike in the last 18 months has grounded over a 1,000 flights. The strike, which was called in a bitter dispute over pilots’ retirement age reported at length in this newsletter, hit both short, medium and long haul flights. Lufthansa management sought and was granted a court injunction, arguing the strikes are hurting the entire German economy. However, when the court forbade the second day of strikes, the air carrier argued it was too late to reinstate the cancelled flights.
