After the latest in a series of Lufthansa cabin crew strikes led by the flight attendants' union UFO, actions demanding guarantees for job security as well as a five percent salary increase, resulting in nearly 1,800 flight cancellations after 13 months of contract negotiations, the strikers and the airline have agreed upon a former economic adviser to the German government, Bert Ruerup, as an arbitrator, who has stated that he expects a solution by the end of October. The cabin crew union has agreed not to strike over the estimated six weeks of discussions. (Photo by Adam Berry/Getty Images)
