The Lufthansa Airlines affected passengers will be entitled to fixed compensation to account for cancellation caused by internal strike

European Regulation (EC) n° 261/2004 stipulates that in the event of cancellation of a flight passengers are entitled to compensation of 250, 400 or 600 euros, depending on the distance of the flight. The Court of Justice of the European Union has ruled on several occasions that an internal strike does not constitute an extraordinary circumstance and therefore does not exempt the airline from liability.
