Lufthansa & Cabin Crew Union Settle Last German Aviation Dispute

Lufthansa and a union representing cabin crew have reached a pay deal, marking the resolution of several significant disputes within Germany's aviation industry.

Details of the Cabin Crew Pay Deal

The UFO union announced that nearly 19,000 cabin crew members would receive a pay rise totaling 17.4% over three years, along with a one-time payment of 3,000 euros per person to counter inflation. The deal also includes increases in bonuses. However, negotiations with staff at Cityline and Discover, Lufthansa's subsidiaries, are ongoing.

Comparison with Ground Staff Deal

Last month, the Ver.di union secured a pay raise averaging 12.5% over two years for around 25,000 Lufthansa ground staff after arbitration. Notably, lower earners would receive more substantial raises.

Resolution of Other Disputes

In addition to the cabin crew and ground staff agreements, a separate dispute involving security staff at major German airports was recently resolved. This deal, reached through arbitration, includes pay raises ranging from 13.1% to 15.1% over 15 months. These conflicts led to significant flight disruptions in recent months.


The resolution of these disputes highlights the challenges faced by both airlines and their employees in the aviation sector. Moreover, the recent agreement between Deutsche Bahn and its train drivers, which reduces the working week without cutting pay, underscores broader labor issues within the transportation industry. These developments signal potential shifts in labor relations and working conditions across aviation and railway sectors in Germany.
