Lufthansa Pilots to Go on Strike in Protracted Labor Dispute
Pilots at Germany`s flagship carrier Lufthansa are expected to go on a one-day strike on Wednesday, German pilot union Vereinigung Cockpit announced. The union and the company are deadlocked in negotiations over early retirement benefits and Lufthansa`s plans to expand its low-cost services.

The 24-hour walkout will only affect Lufthansa`s short and medium-haul flights in Germany. Pilots at Lufthansa`s subsidiaries, Germanwings and Eurowings, will not take part in the strike.
