Lufthansa on strike today

4/21/2013

Today there is a strike within the airline Lufthansa. Affected passengers have the same protection in a strike as usually, regarding delayed and cancelled flights. 

Sometimes a strike counts as an extraordinary circumstance, which might limit your rights to financial compensation as a traveller. The company's own employees being on strike are usually not seen as an extraordinary circumstance, but it is important to remember that compensation claims will be assessed case by case.
