The UFO union called on Berlin-based members to walk out for eight hours starting at 5am (4am Irish time), and urged their counterparts at Frankfurt, Germany's busiest airport, to follow suit at 6am (5am Irish time).
UFO also plans to hit Germany's second-biggest airport, Munich, on Tuesday. An 11-hour walkout there was set to start at 1pm (noon Irish time).
The union opened its strike campaign with an eight-hour walkout in Frankfurt last Friday and warned of more to come if Lufthansa did not give ground.
Lufthansa said the walkouts would force it to cancel "a majority of flights".
