PARIS, Nov 8 (AFP) - Incoming and outgoing Lufthansa flights at Paris' main Charles de Gaulle airport were cancelled Monday due to a wildcat strike by employees, an airport official said.

"There will be no flights from Roissy (Charles de Gaulle) today," the official said, adding that Lufthansa flights from Germany to the airport were also cancelled due to the strike by ground staff.

According to a union statement, the employees walked off the job to protest over salaries of Lufthansa staff in France who were offered a one percent annual increase in the latest negotiations with management.
