A German union on Monday said it had called on Lufthansa cabin crew to stage a strike on Thursday and Friday in an escalating battle for better pay and conditions.

The walkout, scheduled to start at 11 pm GMT on Wednesday and end on Friday at 11 pm GMT, “will affect all Lufthansa flights” scheduled to leave from German airports, said Daniel Flohr, deputy chairman of the UFO cabin crew union.

He said Lufthansa’s “ongoing refusal” to negotiate with the union was to blame for the deepening row.
