Nearly 200,000 passengers are set to be affected by a new 2 day strike by Lufthansa groud staff on Thursday and Friday this week after failed negotiations over pay and working conditions.

To add to the travel woes in Germany, train drivers for the rail operator Deutsche Bahn will also stirke for 35 hours, begining on Thursday. The GDL union's last national rail strike came in January, and was the longest strike in the organisations 30 year history.
