Lufthansa Stike Results in Cancellation of 1200 Flights

The flight attendants of Lufthansa Airlines have begun their 24-hour strike at the six primary airports in Germany, including Frankfurt, Munich, Berlin, and Hamburg airports.  This has resulted in the cancellation of 1200 flights, which is two thirds of the daily flights operated by the airline.  The cancellations will affect about 48,000 passengers, 1500 of whom slept on cots at the airport last night.  The airline has been trying to communicate with customers regarding the strike and has sent out 18,000 text messages.


The strike is over a wage dispute between the airline and the flight attendant union UFO.  The union, which represents two thirds of the airline’s flight attendants, is demanding a 5% increase in their pay, while the airline has offered 3.5%.  The union also wants assurances that the flight attendants will not lose their jobs.  In the meantime, the strike will seriously affect the airline, which serves about 170,000 passengers every Friday.
