No Lufthansa flights in and out of Athens due to strike


There will be no Lufthansa flights in and out of Athens on Monday due to a strike by the airline’s cabin crew.

Lufthansa said on Sunday it would cancel 929 flights affecting 113,000 passengers because of a cabin crew strike on Monday, after a union announced a walk-out at three of the German airline's major airports for almost the entire day.

The strike is part of a week of action organised by cabin crew union UFO to push demands in a long-running row over early retirement benefits and pensions.
