Lufthansa Cuts 140 Flights Due to Strike

Lufthansa, Germany’s largest airline, has canceled 140 European and domestic round-trip flights due to the renewed strike of 190 workers at Frankfurt Airport.  The airline said that their long-haul international flights have not been affected as the GdF unions employees go on a three day strike.  The workers are in their third week of strikes over a pay dispute in which they are demanding increased wages and shorter hours.

Fraport, the operator of the airport, has said that the union’s demands are unreasonable, but the union says they are just asking that their pay be brought to the same level as that of ground workers at other airports.  Juergen Harrer, a spokesperson for Fraport, said another 60 flights have been canceled for Monday, but that most of the airport’s 1300 flights are still operational.
