Finnair cabin crew strike — what is happening?

Finnair cabin crew is striking over better working conditions and better wages. According to the airline, Finnair operations have been highly impacted by COVID-19 at first and then by the war in Ukraine which led to fewer Finnair flights being operated (to and from Russia but also flights to Asia flying above Russia).

Finnair’s management and cabin crew have been trying to agree on the crew’s wages but have not come to an understanding. Finnair management threatened to hire external staff if an agreement wasn’t reached, which would lead to around 450 Finnair cabin crew members being fired.

As a result, the Finnair cabin crew announced a strike on November 20th and November 21st, resulting in hundreds of cancelled Finnair flights.

Finnair strike — will my flight be cancelled?

The Finnair cabin crew strike will lead to hundreds of Finnair flights being cancelled between November 20th and November 21st. If you were planning on going on a Finnair flight on those days, high are the chances that Finnair contacted you already regarding this matter.

If this is not the case, you can easily check your flight status before going to the airport.

Can I get flight compensation for my cancelled Finnair flight because of the strike?

Yes, you can!

Because of the strike, your flight was cancelled at the last minute, and therefore, you are entitled to flight compensation of up to £520 per passenger. On top of that, if you did not take any alternative flight, you could also ask for a full refund of your flight ticket!
