Lufthansa pilots’ union has decided to hold a three-day strike from 22:00 GMT on April 1.
Lufthansa pilots’ strike, over pay and working conditions, is likely to cause the cancellation of hundreds of flights.
The strike will affect Lufthansa passenger services at all airports in Germany, as well as Lufthansa Cargo and low-cost carrier Germanwings.
If it goes ahead, it will be the third strike to hit Frankfurt airport, Lufthansa’s home base, in six weeks.
Lufthansa’s management is urging the pilots’ union, Vereinigung Cockpit (VC), to come back to the negotiating table as soon as possible.
“With the good will of everyone involved, we should be able to avert a strike,” said Lufthansa’s head of personnel, Dr. Bettina Volkens.
In the meantime, Lufthansa says it will take whatever steps it can to minimize the effect of a strike on its customers.
