Lufthansa pilots on strike again

Lufthansa pilots returned to the picket lines this week, once again grounding hundreds of flights by the German carrier.

Pilots began striking Wednesday, halting short- and medium-haul flights, with another day of job action planned for today on the carrier’s long-haul flights; a third day of strikes is planned for Lufthansa’s short- and medium-haul flights again tomorrow, according to the BBC. Similar to last year, the strikes are related to negotiations over retirement benefits, the BBC said.

Pilots took part in numerous strikes last year, costing the airline millions of dollars in the process.
