Lufthansa: German airports in chaos after pilots' strike
And the carrier must decide for Alitalia
German airports in chaos following the Sunday strike by flight attendants of 4 Lufthansa subsidiaries. The protest was to last from 5am to 11am but continued until midnight, impacting the airports of Frankfurt, Duesseldorf, Hamburg, Stuttgart, Berlin, Hamburg and Munich and causing discomfort for over 600,000 passengers. The Lufthansa subsidiaries, according to the German agency "DPA", are Eurowings, Germanwings, SunExpress and CityLine.
The "UFO" (Unabhängige Flugbegleiter Organization) union called for an increase of 1.8% for the 22,000 flight attendants.
Meanwhile, the top of the carrier is evaluating the next moves on Alitalia. After the letter sent to Fs (Ferrovie dello Stato) and to Mise (Ministry of Economic Development) with which the group proposed for a "commercial partnership" with Nuova Alitalia as an alternative to Delta and the subsequent meetings that took place last Monday on October 14 in Rome, now Lufthansa has to make a decision.
