With a crippling pilot strike averted (for now), Lufthansa says operations should be back to normal by Friday. The pilots union has agreed to put off its strike until March 8 so the two sides can return to negotiations.
Lufthansa spokesman Klaus Walther told Reuters, “Of course it takes some time until the planes are back at all 200 locations that the Lufthansa network comprises around the world, and the crews need to be positioned again, too.”
As for the strike, Walther told CNN that he thinks the two sides will reach an agreement “pretty fast,” though he did not elaborate.
