Air Berlin flights hit by 'ill' pilots

86

Insolvent airline Air Berlin, Germany's second-largest carrier, has cancelled around 100 flights after a large number of its pilots called in sick, BBC reports.

It prompted the airline to accuse them of sabotaging rescue talks with potential investors.

The airline filed for insolvency in August after its main shareholder, Gulf carrier Etihad, withdrew financial support.

Domestic and international flights have been affected, stranding passengers.
