German Government To Give Lufthansa Massive Pandemic Rescue Package

Like airlines all over the world, German airline Lufthansa has been hit hard by the novel coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic.

Now, Reuters reports Lufthansa and the German government have reached a preliminary deal on a $9.8 billion bailout.

Talks with Berlin have been going on for weeks over aid to help Lufthansa to cope with what is expected to be a protracted travel slump.

However, the carrier has been wrangling over how much control to yield in return for support.
