News just announced that Lufthansa cabin staff are threatening to strike for one week starting on November 6.

The strike is over retirement and pension benefits.

Of course, the situation may be resolved beforehnd (reports talk of a meeting on Thursday) but I am providing these details in case you have any plans to travel to, from or through Germany during this time.

Reports are saying that Eurowings flights will not be affected.

Another more detailed report in German language.
