In general I’m a supporter of LH and I probably fly with them more than any other airline but I have been looking at alternatives of late precisely because of this long running strike issue.

Having looked into the reasons for the strike I must say the union has no support from me whatsoever, they are trying to protect a series of working practices and benefits that are not sustainable in the current airline world and they increasingly remind me of the last days of the Fleet Street print unions who were still trying to defend their outdated world while the newspapers were simply walking away from them. I remember union leader Brenda Dean telling the media her response to Murdoch refusing to employ her members was to call a strike !
