Lufthansa crew strikes have led to the cancellation of several flights to and from Dublin Airport today.
The following flights are currently listed as cancelled:
LH979 from Dublin Airport to Frankfurt (12.45pm); LH2515 to Munich (5.30pm) and LH981 to Frankfurt (5.50pm).
Cancelled arrivals are:
LH978 from Frankfurt (11.40am); LH2514 from Munich (4.40pm); LH980 from Frankfurt (5.10pm) and LH982 from Frankfurt (10.50pm).
The strikes follow a dispute between the airline and Germany's Independent Flight Attendant’s Organization (UFO) over pay and pensions.
The action affects all Lufthansa flights from/to Frankfurt and Dusseldorf between 4.30am and 11pm, and flights from/to Munich between 4.30 and midnight today.
Some 113,000 passengers will be affected, according to Lufthansa, with 929 flights cancelled throughout the day.
Flights operated by Germanwings, Eurowings, Austrian Airlines, SWISS and Brussels Airlines are not affected by potential strike actions, the airline says.
Passengers should check Lufthansa's website (lh.com) before travel.
