Strikes by Lufthansa pilots have been put back until the end of July after their union, Vereinigung Cockpit (VC) agreed with the airline to enter a mediation programme.

Lufthansa said late last month it was prepared to hold discussions on all outstanding pay issues, in order to end to a row which has resulted in 15 strikes and cost it over 240 million euro.

The crash of a Germanwings plane in March which appears to have been deliberately caused by the co-pilot may have encouraged more harmony among Lufthansa staff. German wings is a subsidiary of Lufthansa.
