Hundreds of flights were cancelled on Thursday as a strike by baggage handlers and other ground staff brought disruption to German airports

Lufthansa, Germany’s biggest airline, cancelled a third of its daily flights.

That included almost all domestic and European short-haul flights during the strike period until 1300 GMT.

Frankfurt, Europe’s third-largest hub, was among the worst affected. There, alone, trade union Verdi said some 1,500 workers took part.

The walkout was part of wider industrial action over pay by public sector workers.
