During the main holiday season, the number of sick days at Lufthansa rose sharply due to Corona. The sick leave is currently up to 30 percent – “due to corona infections, but also due to overloading,” said a company spokesman for “Bild am Sonntag”. The number of sick days has risen sharply, especially among ground staff. “For flying personnel in the cockpit and cabin, the rate is significantly lower in the single digits.”
According to information from the newspaper, 5,000 suitcases belonging to Lufthansa passengers are left behind on the ground at Frankfurt Airport alone every day.
Unowned suitcases are now even being transported by truck to Munich from various German airports. According to the Bavarian Ministry of Transport, around 5,000 suitcases from various airlines are currently stored at Munich Airport, which still have to be delivered to their owners.
Bavaria’s Transport Minister Christian Bernreiter (CSU) confirmed the “BamS”: “Bavaria relieves other airports.” The airport provides the storage space for this, and the respective airline has to take care of the delivery.
