The German Carrier Lufthansa has made the bold prediction that in 2017, there will be no Flugverspätung Entschädigung, which in German means flight delays.
The Lufthansa CEO, Carsten Spohr told members of the Press that in 2017 there would be more more flight delays or cancellations due to industrial action bough about by the Airlines staff. Throughout 2016, the airline suffered many instances of flight delays and cancellations due to strikes by Lufthansa staff.
In order to mitigate the affects of any potential flare-ups between Unions and Lufthansa management, Mr. Spohr said that the company would use the services of independent mediators to iron-out and discuss any problems which could occur in the future.
During November 2016 it is estimated that Lufthansa lost over 100 million in Euros because of flight delays. The airline also encountered warring between staff and management over working conditions and payments, with Lufthansa pilots especially calling for higher wages – even though Lufthansa pilots are some of the highest paid pilots currently working within Europe.
