(WHAS11) -- On a trip overseas, a member of the WHAS11 news team became part of an international story. 

On his way to Israel, Bryan Baker's scheduled flight was among the first round of flights delayed during a strike at Germany's busiest airport.

Baker was delayed 14 hours. He had to change from Lufthansa airlines to Air Berlin. He says the staff was friendly and helpful considering the circumstances.

As soon as he is settled he will be blogging about his experiences overseas on WHAS11.com.

Full story details from the Associated Press: Lufthansa cabin crews go on strike

BERLIN (AP) -- Lufthansa flight attendants are on strike at Germany's busiest airport, causing the cancellation of dozens of flights.

The cabin crews walked off the job early Friday morning at Frankfurt airport in an eight-hour strike that is to last until early afternoon.

The UFO union says it will continue staging short-term strikes until its demands for better pay and conditions for some 18,000 cabin crew at the airline, Germany's largest, are met.

Lufthansa says it has canceled about a quarter of the 360 flights at the airport that were scheduled during the strike hours, all short and middle-distance routes.
