FRANKFURT, July 7 Deutsche Lufthansa (LHAG.DE)
scrapped hundreds of flights at its CityLine and Eurowings
regional carriers on Monday as pilots walked out in a 24-hour
strike over pay.
Lufthansa said 202 services were cancelled up until 1100
GMT. Further flights could be cut later in the day, a spokesman
for the carrier said.
The strike hit passengers at airports across Germany,
including Lufthansa's main hubs at Frankfurt and Munich.
The walkout started at 2200 GMT on Sunday and followed a
breakdown in talks between the Vereinigung Cockpit pilots' union
and the airline and a vote in favour of strike action by pilots.
In a separate dispute over pay for ground staff and cabin
crew at Lufthansa, talks are due to resume between the carrier
and the Verdi union on Wednesday after they failed to reach a
deal this week.
