Cabin crew union UFO said on Wednesday that the strike will last all of Thursday. The union had previously said that Eurowings could avoid the strike if company leaders signed onto an arbitration agreement over pay and other contract conditions.
Lufthansa has been putting Eurowings through major transformation in recent years, merging its operations with that of the company’s other low-cost subsidiary, Germanwings.
UFO’s rival union, Verdi, caused a stir in September when its members organized a ‘warning strike’ against the low-cost airline, resulting in eight flights being cancelled.
