Lufthansa cabin crew threaten one-week strike

Flight attendants declare strike for November 6 to 13
The German cabin crew union UFO has threatened to launch a strike for a full week starting on Friday, but says it can still be called off if Lufthansa gives it a better offer over benefit cuts by Thursday afternoon.
The 19,000-member union said the strike would be held on November 6 to 13, but was not specific about which flights would be targeted.
UFO and Lufthansa have been in talks about cuts the airline is proposing to cabin crew employee benefits and pensions. The talks have stalled since a November 1 deadline for an agreement passed.
The union says Lufthansa’s most recent proposal is “completely unacceptable”. But Lufthansa calls UFO’s decision to go on strike “unreasonable”.
