It has taken 50 yrs to build up LH. This management is using legal theft to destroy the work of honest hard working people. They are despicable scum. They have no concept whatsoever of the social contract made after WW2.
The Lufthansa folks played this strike game a couple years ago, but I believe it was the pilots then. Passed thru FRA enroute Warsaw in February about two days before they were to strike. The airport authority had already (and wisely) lined the corridors with literally hundreds upon hundreds of folding cots to accommodate the tsunami of about-to-be-held-hostage passengers. Thankfully it was all over by the time I came back thru a week later. Hope FRA kept those cots handy.

LH is "running with the devil" at the moment. Management is seeking to save a Euro here and a Euro there. The staff know this and the passengers are starting to drif away. The freight service is too expensive for most shippers. As Phil Rudd notes the top management are on a mission to screw every penny they can out of the airline. They don't give a damn about the business which to them is a profit vehicle...they are "running with the devil"
