FRANKFURT (AFP) - German airline Lufthansa, which is currently battling the biggest strike in its history, expects normal services to be up and running on Saturday, its chief executive said.

"Our aim is to be back to normal operations on Saturday," CEO Christoph Franz told the mass-circulation daily Bild in an interview published on Thursday.

However, "in isolated cases, there could still be a few anomalies for operational reasons," he added.

Germany's biggest airline has cancelled most of its flights until Friday as a result of a three-day walkout by its pilots, who are demanding better pay and retirement conditions.
