Week of Lufthansa strikes starts today

Walkouts to initially hit Frankfurt and Düsseldorf
Lufthansa cabin staff say they will start their strike today at 14:00 until 23:00, at first in Frankfurt and Düsseldorf. More walkouts are planned over the next seven days.
On Saturday, a repeat of the stoppages in Frankfurt and Düsseldorf will take place. But the union UFO, which is organising the strike, says Munich will not be affected this weekend as there are still school holidays in Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg.
The exception for the strike action is Sunday, “since most people travelling that day will be doing so in a private capacity,” the union explains. Also only Lufthansa passenger flights are being hit during the strike; its subsidiaries are not affected.
UFO is protesting against the airline’s management not coming up with an improved offer for pay and early retirement. However, Lufthansa insists it has conceded to all of the union’s demands.
