Lufthansa pilots on strike again, 816 flights canceled

AP  |  Berlin 

Pilots at German airline Lufthansa are on strike again after a two-day break in their campaign of walkouts.

The company has canceled 816 short-haul flights scheduled for today. The walkout by the Cockpit union is to be followed tomorrow by a strike hitting both short-haul and long-haul services.



Lufthansa has canceled 890 flights scheduled Wednesday. The strikes follow four consecutive days of walkouts last week. Lufthansa and Cockpit are far apart in a pay dispute that has dragged on for more than two years.

Lufthansa yesterday failed to persuade a Munich to issue an injunction blocking the latest strike. The company says that around 82,000 passengers will be affected by Tuesday's walkout and 98,000 by Wednesday's.
