A Lufthansa pilots' strike on Monday affecting mostly European flights has been expanded to include long-haul destinations on Tuesday.
Pilots on short-haul routes are due to strike from midday Monday for 35 hours, causing the cancellation of 1,450 flights and hitting 200,000 travellers.  Pilots are protesting against plans to alter retirement and pension terms.
 
The union, which represents about 5,400 Lufthansa pilots, is calling on the airline to reconsider its decision to raise the age that they can retire from 55.
