 LUFTHANSA RESTORES TRANSATLANTIC SCHEDULE
 AS FRANKFURT AIRPORT RESUMES OPERATIONS
 NEW YORK, May 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Lufthansa, the national flag carrier of Germany, resumed its regular schedule of transatlantic flights at midnight, Tuesday, May 5, as operations at Frankfurt Airport, Europe's largest and busiest airport and the airline's main hub, restored full services after a 24-hour strike by some segments of the German Public Service and Transport Workers Union.
 The disruptions, part of a general services strike action begun April 27 within Germany, caused flight delays, cancellations and aircraft diversions to other airports. The carrier, whose personnel are not on strike, accommodated the vast majority of affected passengers on its own flights.
 The airline immediately instituted a frequently updated strike information "hot line" at its newly renovated and modernized reservations center located in East Meadow, Long Island. Offered as an accommodation to concerned Lufthansa passengers, the "hot line" remains operational throughout the current strike and may be accessed nationwide by dialing 1-800-645-3880.
 In an effort to minimize passenger concern and undue inconvenience, Lufthansa has adopted a flexible policy waiving penalties and fees normally imposed when re-booking restricted fare tickets. Full fare tickets, as usual, remain valid for one-year from date to issue and may be changed without limitations.
 Although the strike continues to affect public sector services in Germany, Lufthansa is making every effort to maintain its schedule of 16 daily flights operating from 13 USA gateways to Germany and destinations within its global route network of 190 cities in 82 countries.
