Germany: Over 600 flights cancelled

A number of airports in Germany have cancelled over 600 flights following a strike be security staff.

It appears that security staff have gone out on strike in protest against lack of agreement on salaries, and as a result the airports at Dusseldorf, Cologne-Bonn and Stuttgart have been crippled.

In Dusseldorf alone, some 60,000 passengers ended up being effected by the strike.

According to ARD, travellers had enough chance to make alternative arrangements, as the strike had been notified well in advance. Security staff are upset and angry at their conditions of work.

Another 50 flights wee cancelled on Monday, following a strike at Tegel and Schönefeld airports in Berlin.
