Flights operated by Eurowings Europe and the airline Eurowings Discover are not affected by the strike. The Eurowings pilots had already gone on strike for a day on October 6th. Around half of the 500 planned flights were canceled and up to 30,000 passengers were affected.
At the beginning of September, a pilots' strike at the parent company almost completely paralyzed Lufthansa's flight operations. It was about wage demands of the VC.
