BERLIN--Lufthansa services were mainly back to normal Saturday after a 24-hour staff walkout that grounded half the airline's flights in Germany ended with agreement to call in a mediator.
In a key concession in talks with unions Friday as cabin crew struck, Europe's biggest airline also agreed not to employ cheap contract workers in Berlin.
Until the mediator has reached a decision, expected before the signing of new wage agreements Wednesday, there will be no more walkouts from Saturday, Lufthansa said late Friday.
