Germany's flagship carrier "Lufthansa":www.lhag.de has now been forced to cancel almost 1,800 flights at airports across the country after a strike by pilots was extended until Friday.
It's the fourteenth strike in two and a half year long pay dispute between the airline unions.
On Tuesday, Lufthansa lost a last ditch attempt to halt the walkout.
It is estimated that 215,000 passengers are affected, although the strike's 24 hour extension will only affect short haul flights.
