Lufthansa says they may cut as many as 1,000 Sky Chefs air catering jobs this year in an effort to trim costs.
‘The timing of the cuts at LSG Sky Chefs, which had 29,600 employees globally at the end of last year, according to Lufthansa’s annual report, depends on how capacity and customer demand develops, Corsten said. The unit has around 200 kitchens worldwide, ranking it No. 1 ahead of Gategroup Holding AG.’
The Frankfurt-based German carrier hopes to save $1.9 billion through 2014.
Lufthansa acquired U.S. based Sky Chefs in 2001, which is the worlds largest in-flight catering unit, serving 400 million meals on 300 airlines worldwide.
The airline is already cutting 3,500 administrative positions.
