Hundreds of flights were cancelled today after security personnel walked off the job at two German airports in a dispute over wages.
Workers at Duesseldorf and Hamburg airports started the one-day warning strike at 4am after pay talks went nowhere.
Duesseldorf cancelled 189 flights and Hamburg about 90.
The Verdi union called the strike after the latest talks ended without employers making an acceptable offer.
The works councils at the two airports said seven in 10 security guards are paid just £7.08 an hour.
The Duesseldorf workers have demanded an extra £2.15 an hour but bosses have offered just 34p.
And in Hamburg they want £2.32, while management has put 77p on the table.
