Lufthansa Flight attendants may go on week-long strike from Friday

  • Published by Ozgur Tore

lufthansa crewLufthansa is struggling to come to agreements with air crew on how to compete with low-cost carriers on short-haul flights and more efficient Gulf carriers on intercontinental routes. Lufthansa cabin crews are to call a week-long strike from Friday if management doesn’t meet a fresh set of demands from its union on retirement and pension benefits.

Flight attendants' union UFO would call for a strike from Nov. 6-13 if the German airline did not respond until Thursday.

The move follows a breakdown in two-year talks as the company tries to implement a cost cutting programme.

"All passengers are advised to assume that their flights will not take off," the union head said.
