Lufthansa strike axes another 933 flights

Around 107,000 Lufthansa passengers scramble for other transport
Another 933 Lufthansa flights are cancelled on Thursday as cabin crew enter their sixth strike day out of seven. Around 107,000 passengers will be scrambling to find other means of transport.
There is now little hope of ending the strike before the week is over, either through negotiation or via the courts.
Labour courts in Düsseldorf and Darmstadt ruled that the union UFO was within its rights to stage the walkout, which Lufthansa has appealed against – but the appeal will not be heard until 15.30 on Thursday.
The airline insists that the strikers, who are protesting over pay and early retirement, must return to work before negotiations can resume.
