Strike at Berlin Airports by staff forces flight cancellations and delays

German ground staff went on strike at Berlin’s two airports on Wednesday, forcing the cancellation of 137 flights and delaying many more.
Ground crew, represented by union Verdi, went on strike at Tegel and Schoenefeld airports at 04:00 GMT and were due to resume work at 10:00 GMT. They want a pay rise of roughly 10 percent to €12 an hour. About 500 take-offs and landings were planned for Wednesday at Berlin’s airports, an airports spokesman said.
Airlines that serve the German capital, including Lufthansa, easyJet, Air Berlin and Ryanair, had to cancel or delay flights. Reuters
