Numerous flights planned by Easyjet Europe had to be carried out at Berlin-Brandenburg Airport on Friday morning. The reason for this is that the Verdi union hires flight attendants from 5:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m called for a warning strike.
During this time, only flights EJU4579 (Pristina) and EJU5831 (Tel Aviv) were operated from the Berlin base, but each with a significant delay. The last-mentioned flight was scheduled for 8:00 a.m., but boarding only began after the warning strike had ended, so that Easyjet obviously decided not to cancel this flight but to delay it.
It is to be expected that there may still be cancellations and delays throughout the day due to the after-effects of the industrial action. This applies both to Berlin and to the “other ends” of the flight routes. Passengers should inform themselves regularly about the current state of affairs.
On the Pentecost weekend, Easyjet had to depart from Berlin both on Saturday as well as on Sunday cancel numerous flights. This was particularly annoying for the passengers, as many wanted to fly on vacation or were on their way back. In most cases, the reason for the absences last weekend was an acute shortage of staff. Meanwhile, Easyjet has decided that the frequencies from Berlin-Brandenburg will be reduced.
