Lufthansa flight attendants held an eight-hour strike last Friday and their union says that they plan to hold another strike on Tuesday. The strike last Friday caused the cancellation of 190 domestic flights and the cancellation of a number of international flights. The backlog of aircraft on the apron got so bad that, at one point, they had to shut it down. A spokesperson for the union would supply details of Tuesday's strike, but he did say that details would be provided six hours prior to the start of the strike.
This time the strike will hit more locations and for a longer period of time than Friday's strike action. Aside from Frankfurt, which was hit on Friday, it is predicted that airports in Düsseldorf, Berlin, and Munich will be hit. Lufthansa has expressed regret that the union has decided to strike again and a spokesperson for the airline said that they are convinced the offer they have made the flight attendants is attractive. The offer includes a 3.5% pay increase, although the union is looking for 5%.
