Lufthansa pilots strike – Munich, Wednesday 9 September 2014

Lufthansa pilots will hold an eight-hour strike at Munich airport on Wednesday 9 September, union Vereinigung Cockpit said on Tuesday.

This is the third strike by the pilots to hit the German airline within two weeks. The pilots are trying to increase the pressure on Lufthansa in negotiations over an early retirement scheme. They held a strike at budget unit Germanwings at the end of August, followed by a walkout at Frankfurt last week.

The strike on Wednesday at Munich, Lufthansa's biggest airport after Frankfurt, will run from 08.00-16.00 GMT, the union said.
