Eurowings condemns three-day strike by crew

Eurowings has condemned a union in Germany for calling a three-day strike by Germanwings cabin crew.

It said the strike, which ends at midnight on January 1, is 'disproportionate' and 'incomprehensible'.

The airline claims the UFO refused to meet for talks just before Christmas and said additional dates to continue negotiations have already been scheduled for January 16 and 17.

In a statement, Eurowings said: "The fact that UFO is calling for a strike again despite the ongoing negotiations shows how it is ruthlessly carrying out its power politics on the backs of customers and employees. A strike at this time is misguided and disproportionate, and based on reasons that are only a pretext.

"Eurowings wants to keep the impact of the strike on its passengers as minimal as possible and is working on a special flight schedule for the strike period."

Cologne-based Germanwings is owned by Lufthansa and operates under the Eurowings brand. It operates 30 of Eurowings' 140 aircraft.
