Frankfurt Airport Continues Flight Cancelations Due to Continuing Strike

A continuing strike by ground crew workers at the Frankfurt Airport has caused the continuing cancelations of flights.  The strike began last Thursday.  A total of 231 flights were canceled on Monday and the strike is expected to continue through to Wednesday morning.  The majority of these cancelations were for the airline Lufthansa, which has been canceling flights ahead of time in anticipation of the strike, giving passengers plenty of notice on their website.

The GdF union has about 200 workers on strike as they demand better pay.  Mike Peter Schweitzer, a spokesperson for Fraport AG, the company that operates the airport, said that a total of 1250 flights have been scheduled to operate and the cancelations have come out of those.  He also said that Fraport is ready to negotiate with GdF, but the are waiting for GdF to step up to the negotiating table and to be willing to compromise.  No talks are scheduled as of now.
