Another disturbing news for both German and European tourists in general was presented by Lufthansa: in addition to the cancellations of summer flights, and there have already been about 4,000 such cancellations, the carrier began to cancel flights for the upcoming winter season as well. We are talking about the period from October 2022 to March 2023. The new Lufthansa cancellations will further increase the workload of travel agencies and the panic of tourists – in fact, now there is no season left when you can comfortably relax without wild queues at airports. Now thousands of European tourists have fallen into despair…
At the same time, as noted by local media, while Lufthansa does not disclose how many scheduled flights will be available in the winter. For the summer season, meanwhile, figures have been announced: Lufthansa has so far canceled 3,700 flights between June and October due to staff shortages. At the same time, the carrier said that it could make further cuts in August, when the flow of those wishing to relax will grow even more. However, the vast majority of canceled flights are domestic flights.
The number of flight cancellations across Europe continues to rise due to strikes and staff shortages at airlines and airports. Lufthansa also has the problem that many employees are on sick leave – roughly 40% of the check-in staff in Frankfurt and 25% of the check-in staff in Munich are currently on sick leave.
Meanwhile, aviation chaos continues to grow. Due to a shortage of staff, tourists are already being advised to fly exclusively with hand luggage – or there is a risk that you will have to wait for your luggage for several days. And get it literally with a fight. Read the details at the link.
