Lufthansa cancels hundreds of flights due to strike


Lufthansa canceled hundreds of flights out of Frankfurt, Berlin and Munich on Tuesday when its cabin crew went on strike for the second time in five days. Cabin crew walked out Friday, stranding 26,000 passengers.

Lufthansa posted a notice on its website that the strike would end at Berlin's Tegel Airport at 1 p.m. and at Frankfurt at 2 p.m., but that flight operations would still be affected afterward.

The airline said the strike was forcing it to cancel flights and that travelers should expect unscheduled cancellations and delays. It said that flights of Lufthansa Regional (CityLine, Eurowings) and Germanwings will not be affected.

Lufthansa on Wednesday morning expects to cancel only a handful of flights.
