lufthansa-airlinesLufthansa airline has opted to apply for a temporary injunction at a court in Munich to prevent the strikes on 29th November and 30th November, planned by the pilots of the airline.



According to Vereinigung Cockpit, the pilot’s union, the strikes would affect the short-haul planes on 29th November and it would affect the short-haul as well as long-haul planes on 30th November, Wednesday.



After facing the 15th strike by the pilots since the month of April, the authorities of Lufthansa has decided to ask for an injunction from the court. It has been found that the latest four-day-long strike has forced 2,800 flights of the airline to be cancelled.



The spokeswoman for Lufthansa, Bettina Volkens has informed that the airline hopes that Vereinigung Cockpit finally changes its uncompromising stance, which cannot be forced via strikes.



According to the board member at Vereinigung Cockpit, Joerg Handwerg, it is completely incomprehensible that Lufthansa has refused to put forward an offer that can at least form the basis of a negotiation.



Handwerg has also informed that the high-level talks at short notice failed to lead to an agreement on the wage contract.



It has been found that the latest strike has affected over 350,000 air passengers and as per the airline, the strike is costing them around 10m Euros per day.
