Air Berlin flights hit by 'ill' pilots (STA BREAKING NEWS and ARCHIVES)

by Theresa @, Tuesday, September 12, 2017, 16:37

Insolvent airline Air Berlin, Germany's second-largest carrier, has cancelled around 100 flights after a large number of its pilots called in sick.
It prompted the airline to accuse them of sabotaging rescue talks with potential investors.

The airline filed for insolvency in August after its main shareholder, Gulf carrier Etihad, withdrew financial support.

Domestic and international flights have been affected, stranding passengers.
'Playing with fire'

Lufthansa's low cost subsidiary, Eurowings, which is renting aircraft and pilots from Air Berlin, also had to cancel flights.
