The European airline will feed passengers in a new way: it offers tourists a delay for only 3.5 euros

Germany’s largest airline, Lufthansa, has introduced significant discounts on in-flight meals. The airline adopted the method of supermarkets, which reduce prices for products whose expiration date is coming up.

As reported by Avianews.com, now on return Lufthansa flights to the base airports of Munich and Frankfurt, unsold products will be sold at a discount for a single price of 3.5 euros. Due to the limited shelf life, products not sold during the flight are usually unloaded after the flight and sent for disposal, which is extremely disadvantageous for the carrier.

The concept provides that before the plane lands, the passenger will be able to check what meals are left and buy food to take with him. As a result, the airline will not pay for product disposal.

Lufthansa’s subsidiaries Austrian Airlines, Swiss, and Eurowings began offering discounts on unsold meals in 2022.

Lufthansa and canceled flights

Lufthansa quite often faces the problem of canceled or postponed flights, in connection with which, the issue of food on board and disposal of spoiled products becomes especially relevant.

In June 2022, about 134,000 passengers were stuck at airports due to a strike by Lufthansa airline personnel. The trade unions demanded a 10% salary increase for 20,000 workers.

On February 15, 2023, due to a global failure in the Lufthansa airline’s IT systems, all flights were canceled or postponed.

On February 17, 2023, Lufthansa was forced to cancel about 1,300 flights. About 300,000 passengers were unable to use their flight tickets due to a strike at seven airports in Germany.

On March 27, 2023, Germany was paralyzed by the biggest transporters’ strike in 30 years. About 350,000 transport workers took part in the strike.
