    German airline Lufthansa announced that it will cancel 110 flights set for Wednesday in Germany and Europe, due to a strike announced by the pilots in Munich (South), in the context of a conflict regarding conditions for early retirement, according to AFP.

    Lufthansa declared that the 110 canceled flights had Munich as departure and destination and had 13.500 passengers.

    Intercontinental flights departing from Munich will not be disturbed, but there may be some delays of the longer flights, said the German company in a press release.

    After the announcement in late August about the failure of the negotiations with the company’s management on the conditions of early retirement for pilots, the union organized two strikes which disturbed air traffic.

    So, Friday evening, the company was forced to cancel at least 218 flights in Germany and Europe, affecting approximately 26.000 passengers.
