Long lines of frustrated passengers form at Frankfurt Airport, as a cabin crew strike enters its 2nd day. Lufthansa says 58,000 passengers are affected.
For years, Lufthansa has been wrangling with its pilots as the airline attempted to reduce costs. A deal struck with its main pilots union on Tuesday should ensure significantly less labor turbulence in the years ahead.
Different bosses, different rights: whether Germans are allowed to strike for better working conditions depends on if they work for a private employer, the church or the state. And that's just one of the rules.
Germany's flagship carrier Lufthansa has announced hundreds more flight cancellations Friday and Saturday, as a pilots' strike over a pay dispute continues unabated. Already, the costs of the industrial action are huge.
A German trade union has called for a strike at airports across the country on Wednesday. All intercontinental flights to and from Munich will be canceled; Düsseldorf, Cologne, and Frankfurt airports will also be hit.
