A spokeswoman for Lufthansa said the strike
would end on Saturday morning at 4.45 am (0345 GMT). She said
the stoppage on Friday had not affected any of Lufthansa's 17
daily flights to and from Paris.
Lufthansa, like other airlines hit by the economic downturn in
Europe and increasing competition from low-cost carriers and
Gulf airlines, is cutting costs to improve annual operating
profit by 1.5 billion euros ($2.1 billion).
The carrier operates between 1,700 and 1,800 flights around the
world per day.
