Strike at Lufthansa Causes Flight Cancellations

On Friday, about 1000 flight attendants went on strike, causing the cancellation of over 200 flights for Germany’s largest airline at Germany’s busiest airport.  The flight attendants say that there will be more work stoppages if the airline does not agree to their demands.  The two sides have been in negotiations for 13 months regarding a pay raise and receiving a guarantee that certain conditions be met.  UFO union head Nicoley Baublies said they have to wait to see how Lufthansa responds.


The strike left thousands of passengers stranded in Frankfurt airport.  About 200 short- and medium-haul flights were cancelled and a few long-haul flights were also cancelled, such as those bound for New York, Seattle, and Boston.  They planned the strike to last for eight hours, which would be long enough to throw flights off for the rest of the day.  The union will decide on future strikes, depending on how the airline reponds.
