BERLIN -- A union is calling on cabin crew at German airline Lufthansa to walk off the job for five hours next weekend in a long-running dispute over pay and the union s status.

The UFO union said it is urging cabin crew and pursers at Frankfurt and Munich airports, Germany s busiest, to walk out between 6 and 11 a.m. (0400 and 0900 GMT) on Sunday.
