German Airlines Strike – level 1

02-01-2020 07:00

Lufthansa has a cheap airlines called Eurowings. Eurowings has to cancel more than 170 flights. There is a 3-day long flight attendant strike.

The flight attendants have a union. It tells them to strike. This is because the people in the union and Lufthansa do not agree. The union wants to make different rules for the workers for part-time work.

The canceled flights happen this week from Monday to Wednesday. Eurowings is not happy. It wants to give people flights from Christmas to the New Year.

Difficult words: flight attendant (the worker on a plane who helps people be comfortable and safe), strike (when workers do not work so that their business can help them with something), union (a group of people who help workers).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
