    Pilots at Germany's flagship carrier Lufthansa are expected to go on a one-day strike on Wednesday, German pilot union Vereinigung Cockpit announced. The union and the company are deadlocked in negotiations over early retirement benefits and Lufthansa's plans to expand its low-cost services.

    The 24-hour walkout will only affect Lufthansa's short and medium-haul flights in Germany. Pilots at Lufthansa's subsidiaries, Germanwings and Eurowings, will not take part in the strike.
