Hundreds more flights grounded as Lufthansa strike lingers

Hundreds more flights were grounded on Thursday when a strike by Lufthansa’s main cabin crew union entered its sixth day, with no sign of compromise to resolve the longest walkout in the history of the German airline. Cabin crew staff started a series of strikes at the airline’s core Lufthansa brand last Friday to fight for an improved pension offer for employees. Lufthansa cancelled 933 flights on Thursday, affecting 107,000 passengers, an equivalent to around one-third of the daily flights usually operated by the airline company. Lufthansa said that the strike is costing them at least 10 million euros ($10.7 million) a day.
