Traveler's Update: Frankfurt Strike Now Extended Until 2/24

My postings on the continuing extension of the strike at Frankfurt Airport are beginning to seem like a number of scenes from the US movie, "Groundhog Day," yet the union representing apron staff, GdF, announced in recent hours that the strike that began late last week will again be extended until Friday evening, February 24.

COMMENT: Given the continuing impact of this strike on transit passengers traveling through FRA, passengers are urged to contact their airline and rebook on flights less likely to be canceled. Fortunately, despite the strike, airport management has been able to keep nearly 80% of its flights in the air.
