FRANKFURT (Reuters) – Pilots at German airline Lufthansa will strike again this week, the union said on Tuesday, escalating a pay dispute that will further worsen summer travel chaos.

It follows a strike last week that forced the cancellation of hundreds of flights.

The strike will affect pilots in both the airline’s passenger and cargo divisions, the Vereinigung Cockpit (VC) union, which represents more than 5,000 pilots, said.

Passenger pilots will strike on Wednesday and Thursday, and cargo pilots will strike from Wednesday to Friday.

The VC is demanding a 5.5% pay rise this year and automatic inflation compensation thereafter.
