German pilots union VC should resume talks with Lufthansa to find a compromise over a long-running pay dispute rather than repeatedly going on strike, a board member at the airline told a German weekly.

Lufthansa cancelled nearly 2,800 flights this week following a four-day strike that affected more than 350,000 passengers, the 14th walkout in a dispute running since early 2014 that has cost the airline hundreds of millions of euros.

"We have to talk," Bettina Volkens, Lufthansa's board member in charge of human resources told Bild am Sonntag.

"I hope very much that (VC) finally changes its uncompromising stance." "This cannot be forced via strikes." VC rejected the latest pay offer from Germany's biggest airline late on Friday but lifted the threat of extending their strike beyond Saturday. It said more strikes were possible, and would be announced at least 24 hours in advance.
