  • Lufthansa's Pilots overwhelmingly vote to strike!
    The carrier is in the middle of a restructuring program, dubbed SCORE, which aims to improve operating profit by 1.5 billion euros compared with 2011. It has already agreed pay deals with ground staff and cabin crew, leaving the pilots as the final major front line staff group with which it has to reach agreement.
    And here I was, thinking that things were peachy over at LH. Guess not.

    Analysts at Barclays estimate Lufthansa's staff costs are 15 percent lower than at Air France, but still around 10-15 percent higher than at British Airways.
    Now that's interesting.
    Whatever is necessary, is never unwise.
