The German low-cost airline Air Berlin today announced the suspension of at least 32 flights on the second day of a covert pilot strike, which yesterday has prevented a hundred routes and is affecting thousands of passengers.

The company, which recently filed for bankruptcy but is still operating thanks to a public credit for informed of these new cancellations and indicated that they must, once again, that an "extraordinarily high" number of pilots have declared themselves ill and have not come to their jobs

Air Berlin also does not rule out that new routes should be canceled throughout the day due to the unpredictability of this pilots protest action.

This Wednesday, according to an internal document of the airline that has transcended the media, 149 medical pilots are found, after the almost 200 who did not come to work yesterday for disease.

The action is illegal because it has not been convened by any union and has even been criticized by some labor representatives, such as the professional association Cockpit.

Transport Minister Alexander Dobrindt urged workers, in a statement to the Bild newspaper, to "keep Air Berlin in the best possible shape" the head of Economy, Brigitte Zypries, asked the parties to "temper the nerves."

The company now raises the cost of protest to five million euros, an "existential threat" to the airline.

The action of the pilots began shortly after the management of Air Berlin suspended negotiations on Monday with a new potential buyer of the airline for the absorption of more than 1,200 pilots of the broken company.
