Lufthansa cancels 890 flights
Germany's largest airline, Lufthansa, says it has cancelled 890 flights after pilots again extended their strike in an ongoing dispute over wages.
Lufthansa says some 98,000 passengers on short and long-haul flights are affected.
The Cockpit union has been staging strikes with 24 hours' notice since last week, and it remains far apart from Lufthansa in a pay dispute that has dragged on for more than two years.
So far the strikes have not affected Lufthansa subsidiaries such as Eurowings, Germanwings, Austrian Air and Swiss.
Cockpit is seeking retroactive raises of 3.66 per cent a year going back 5 years.
