Lufthansa pilots may have reported back to work at midnight, but labor unrest continues to roll across Europe Tuesday as French air traffic controllers are expected to go on strike.
Half of Tuesday's flights at Orly Airport in Paris, France, were expected to be canceled, along with 25 percent of flights at Charles de Gaulle Airport, as a result of a planned strike by four civil aircraft staff, including air traffic controllers, for Tuesday through Saturday.
The action comes a day after German-based Lufthansa and its pilot's union agreed to suspend its standoff and return to the bargaining table. The suspension will expire on March 8, barring an agreement before then, both sides said in a Frankfurt labor court.
The industrial action has plunged much of the continent into chaos and it doesn't look like it will end soon.

Do you think that Europeans have an outdated work ethic that makes them less competitive?
