Lufthansa said on its website that the UFO union had called on Lufthansa cabin crew to strike on March 12 in Frankfurt and March 13 in Munich.

As a result, the airline will have to adjust its flight programme on both days, Lufthansa said.

“Guests whose flights are affected by the UFO strike are currently being rebooked. This process has the highest priority for us and is still ongoing. We therefore ask for your patience,” the airline said.

“Guests whose booking has already been processed will receive information about the cancellation of their flight and, of course, rebooking options individually by email or in the Lufthansa app,” it said.

Frankfurt Airport asked all Lufthansa passengers to check the status of their flight on the airline’s website at before travelling to the airport. Passengers of all other airlines are also advised to check their flight status, the airport said.
