BERLIN (Reuters) - Lufthansa (LHAG.DE: Quote) said it was cancelling 912 flights on Thursday, just under one-third of its schedule, due to a strike by pilots in Germany, it said on Wednesday.

Thursday's cancellations include 82 long-haul flights and will affect around 115,000 passengers, Lufthansa said.
