Lufthansa Pilots Striking Again
As detailed in this Skift post and this BBC News post, Lufthansa pilots are striking again—for 35 hours starting today and ending tomorrow local time at midnight.

What we do know is this: Lufthansa has already cancelled 1,450 flights. Here’s the list of canceled flights, and here’s Lufthansa’s page on how to rebook, travel options and how to get a refund. And for an easily digestible breakdown of what your rights are as an airline passenger in Europe in this situation, check out this piece from contributor Maryann Simson here.
