    You just have to love over-paid union workers no?

    Anyway due to a strike happening on the 22th of April 2013 Lufthansa has decided to cancel most of its flights.
    "Deutsche Lufthansa AG (LHA), Europe’s second-largest airline, faces further disruption to services next week after unions called for a day-long strike to add pressure to demands for more pay.
    Lufthansa’s main Frankfurt and Munich airports will be hit by strikes on Monday, as will sites in Berlin and Dusseldorf and the Cologne hub for its Germanwings low-cost operations, the Ver.di union said in a statement today. Most locations will see participating workers walk out for the full day, a step up from the March 21 action that had been limited to half a day.
    The protests come as Lufthansa tries to lower costs and increase revenue to lift operating profit to a record 2.3 billion euros ($3 billion) by 2015. That includes cutting about 3,500 jobs."
