Lufthansa strike to continue till Wednesday

  • Pilots at German airline Lufthansa said they will continue until Wednesday their strike over a long-running dispute with the management over early retirement provisions, the media reported.

    The airline also expected cancellations to its short-haul flights on Wednesday as the union called for the extension. The strike, the 13th in 18 months, will affect passenger and cargo flights out of Germany. Lufthansa said it would still operate 90 out of 170 planned long-haul flights. (Source: IANS)
