FRANKFURT, Nov 22 (Reuters) - Lufthansa has asked a court to issue a temporary injunction to avert a strike by pilots scheduled for Wednesday, the Frankfurt labour court and Lufthansa said.
A hearing has been scheduled for 3 pm local time (1400 GMT), the court said on Tuesday.
The pilots’ union has called for a full-day walkout by pilots in a long-running pay dispute, forcing the airline to cancel nearly a third of flights scheduled for Wednesday.
