Lufthansa has cancelled 895 flights today because of the airport strike by the union Verdi. It expects to operate 40% of its 1,500 flights to and from German airports during the day.
As reported, the strikes are aimed at airports in Frankfurt, Munich, Dusseldorf, Cologne, Dortmund and Hannover. More than 87,000 passengers are affected.
