German strike plunges Ryanair into fresh turmoil

German pilots and cabin crew for budget Irish carrier Ryanair walk off the job, disrupting travel for thousands of passengers in the latest flare-up of a bitter Europe-wide battle for better pay and conditions. The Irish budget carrier said it was cancelling 150 out of 400 scheduled flights to and from Germany because of the walkout, which it slammed as "unacceptable" and "unnecessary".
