German budget carrier Eurowings announced last week that part of their cabin crew would be going on strike as early as coming Monday which has now been postponed until further notice.
The company and union negotiators will try for a last ditch effort to find common ground on terms for a group of flight attendants employed with Eurowings.
Eurowings announced that the strike planned for Monday is off for now but it could begin as early as Wednesday depending on the results of the negotiations in the next couple of days.

The UFO trade union has announced a strike of its members among the Eurowings cabin crew in Düsseldorf and Hamburg.
We have no information at present as to when the strike is expected to start.
The walkout may begin as early as Wednesday. Disruptions to flights are expected to occur throughout the Eurowings route network.
Long-haul flights and flights operated by Germanwings (with a 4U flight number), SunExpress, Condor or other partner airlines are not affected by the strike action.
As soon as the strike period is known, we will notify you immediately about any delays and possible flight cancellations.
Passengers who have provided relevant contact details will be informed about any changes via text message or e-mail. Passengers who have booked flights via eurowings.com, can also add and store their personal contact data subsequently in the “My Eurowings” section.
Customers whose flights are affected by the strike action can cancel or rebook their flights free of charge. In this case, Eurowings will also provide vouchers enabling customers travel by rail instead. As soon as the strike period is known, passengers will be able to check the ongoing status of their flights.
If you have a flight coming up with Eurowings you should watch your flight number and also monitor the flight status on Eurowings website.
To be honest I wouldn’t want to exchange my flight coupon against train tickets unless it’s a better deal compared to purchasing tickets directly from the railway company. Always check the prices beforehand including last minute train tickets from Ltur Germany.
Eurowings has been plagued by operational issues that we covered here on LoyaltyLobby many times already. Now this unfortunate strike situation puts a further strain on the carrier. Such a carousel of plans isn’t good for the customers and certainly leads to much frustration on everyones part.
Keep in mind that Eurowings uses different designators for their flight numbers, and as indicated by the company notice not all flights are affected by this measure.
