According to the statement, pilots “of the Airbus A380 type that will no longer be used by Lufthansa” will receive a special bonus of 35,000 euros (about R $ 218,000) for participating in the volunteer program.

In its most recent publications on operating forecasts targeting the financial market, the company continued to post a special note on the A380 stating that the model was in “long-term storage,” while other models such as the A340 and 747-400 has just signaled that they will be decommissioned.
