German cabin crew union demands inflation bonus from Lufthansa
BERLIN (Reuters) - German cabin crew union UFO demanded a tax-free inflation bonus of 3,000 euros ($3,170.10) from Lufthansa on Thursday in view of good business at the airline and price pressures.
Germany's Lufthansa last Friday delivered an "unprecedented" turnaround as it swung to a 1.51 billion euro profit in 2022 and said it expects a significant improvement in earnings this year.
The airline must let employees share in the company's success and reward their efforts, UFO leader Daniel Kassa Mbuambi said in a statement.
"The time has never been better: the crisis seems to be over, Lufthansa is making profits again," he added.
