Air Berlin affected by pilot strike action

Air Berlin was forced to cancel several German domestic services and an LTU long-haul service on 31-Aug-2009, due to a one-day strike by some of its pilots (Associated Press, 31-Aug-09). The Cockpit Pilots Union is seeking an 11.7% pay rise, significantly higher than the 3% increase offered by the carrier.
