Planned strikes at Germany’s largest carrier Lufthansa have been called off.

Labour union, UFO, which represents cabin crew, announced it would hold further negotiations with the airline.

Workers had planned to walk out on Thursday and Friday (November 26-27) and threatened further action next Monday (November 30).

The long-running dispute, which has been going on for nearly two years, is over pay and early retirement benefits.

The union staged eight days of industrial action earlier this month forcing the cancellation of around 4,700 Lufthansa flights.
