Reuters reports:

Lufthansa cabin crew may strike over pay from Tuesday 28th August in a move that could cause widespread flight disruption at Germany's leading airline.

The move comes as Lufthansa cuts 3,500 jobs - about 3 percent of its global workforce of 117,000 - and freezes investment to boost profit squeezed by soaring fuel prices and fierce competition from low-cost and Middle East carriers.

Lufthansa has also shifted contracts of pilots and flight attendants at carrier Austrian Airlines to a lower-cost subsidiary and boosted cooperation between its main Lufthansa brand and low-cost carrier Germanwings.

Any idea how long they will go on strike for normally in Germany? Just a day or longer?

Wow, I hope you will be ok. It doesnt say what percentage of flights will be cancelled though, and often international flights have priority and will fly.

The union for the FAs already mentioned that it won't be a widespread strike but more of many small actions.
Nevertheless they agreed to more negotiations so there is nothing confirmed right now.

I hope a flight from NAP to MUC will be "international" then!!
