FRANKFURT--German flag-carrier Lufthansa said it would cancel two-thirds of its Friday flights after a cabin crew union announced a 24-hour stoppage at six major airports.
The Independent Flight Attendants' Organization announced the strike late Wednesday, a day after its members staged eight-hour walkouts at three key German airports in a dispute over pay and conditions.
The strike Friday will hit Frankfurt, Berlin, Hamburg, Munich, Dusseldorf and Stuttgart, said a statement on the union's website.
