BERLIN (AP) - Germany's Lufthansa says it has canceled almost 900 domestic and intercontinental flights on the first day of a three-day strike by the pilots' union.

The airline says up to 900 flights were canceled for today and it expects to cancel about 3,800 flights altogether, affecting more than 425,000 passengers.

The airline says it's done whatever it could to offer alternative travel arrangements for its passengers and rebooked many customers on trains or different airlines.

The pilots' union Cockpit had called for the strike for today, Thursday and Friday in a long-running pay dispute.
