Reply To: Lufthansa cabin staff threaten strike action for one week effective Nov 6Back to Forum
But also note that Deutsche Bahn was damaged by a series of strikes (nine in the 11 months up to May 2015) by workers. Am not sure what the latest situation is but, as with Lufthansa, they affected rail passenger confidence.
Just as Lufthansa is losing previously loyal passengers to foreign airlines and foreign airports (AMS/BRU/ZRH are convenient for certain regions of Germany) Deutsche Bahn has seen some passengers defect to the newly deregulated long distance bus operators.
Indeed as reported previously on our News pages, Deutsche Bahn has established its own bus firm and now finds it more economical to replace some of its train services by buses !
