German airline Lufthansa’s crews on strike for 2nd day

BERLIN — Germany’s flagship airline, Lufthansa, has cancelled hundreds of flights as a strike by cabin crews enters its second day.

Some 600 flights, primarily from the Frankfurt and Munich hubs, were cancelled Friday, the dpa news agency reported. On the first day of the 48-hour strike, 700 flights were cancelled.

Lufthansa says some 180,000 passengers have been affected.

The UFO union called the strike as part of a bitter dispute with Lufthansa over pay and the union’s legal status.

Even though the strike is set to end Friday the airline says some Saturday flights will be affected because aircraft and crews need to be returned to their correct locations.

UFO represents some 21,000 Lufthansa crews.
