German airline federal court decision  

28 August 2012 Talks have failed between cabin crew UFO labour union and Deutsche Lufthansa AG. Carrier will not give in on it's restructuring programme. 120,000 jobs are to go and 3,500 will be flight attendants. Bodensee Friedrichshafen Airport flights will be delayed or cancelled.

18,000 Lufthansa flight attendants can strike legally anytime. You will be lucky today to get by with your travel plans. Lufthansa will not make contingency plans public till union gives strike times and dates. We do know that long-hauls will take priority. Company will want expensive airlines back in home bases. Cabin crews do not want to be abandoned in a hotel abroad incurring hotel fees. Union will only pay for X number of days of accommodation. Cabin crews will be informed of details via text and emails. 

Lufthansa will be knocking on judges doors to get the open ended strike deemed illegal today.

Other airlines in for a bonanza of business. Christmas comes early and will jump for joy at the extra business.  Are probably planning to put on extra flights right now. Airline ticket prices may go up. German government will put on extra trains, rental cars will be hard to find. Hoteliers ewill be overwhelmed.  Book your hotel room at both ends of your trip now, you can always cancel. Lufthansa will be buying up every hotel in a 100 mile radius!
