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?
