Lufthansa airline cabin crew strike to cause pain for passengers


No fewer than 200,000 passengers will face travel misery in the coming days as Lufthansa airline cabin crews  strike begins on Wednesday.


The flight will affect all Lufthansa flights scheduled to leave from German airports, said Daniel Flohr, deputy chairman of the UFO cabin crew union.


The 48-hour walkout by the crew members could cause chaos at airports as hundreds of flight will be cancelled.


Nigerian passengers leaving the country through the airline Wednesday and Thursday might not be able to proceed with their connecting flights.


Lufthansa said it strongly condemned the proposed strike and said it was considering its legal options.


The crew said Lufthansa’s “ongoing refusal” to negotiate with the union was to blame for the deepening row.
