Lufthansa pilots' strike grounds thousands again

Pilots with Lufthansa staged a second day of strikes this week, the union’s ninth strike action this year.

Long-haul and cargo pilots with the German carrier joined short- and medium-haul pilots Tuesday on the second day of job action, over negotiations related to early retirement payments which broke down on Friday.

On Monday, almost half of Lufthansa’s 2,800 flights were cancelled, affecting 150,000 passengers and costing the carrier several million dollars.
