LUFTHANSA CAN­CELS 900 FLIGHTS

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

FRANKFURT: Ger­many’s flag­ship car­rier Lufthansa said it would can­cel 900 flights today be­cause of a strike by pi­lots, caus­ing travel dis­rup­tions for tens of thou­sands of pas­sen­gers in the lat­est es­ca­la­tion of a long-sim­mer­ing pay dis­pute. The 24-hour stop­page, called by the pi­lots’ union Vere­ini­gung Cock­pit, will start at mid­night and af­fect Lufthansa flights at air­ports across Ger­many. Out of the roughly 3,000 planned short- and long-haul flights, 876 will be can­celled due to the strike, “af­fect­ing some 100,000 pas­sen­gers”, Lufthansa said in a state­ment. – AFP
