LUFTHANSA has agreed to pay $85m to settle US class-action lawsuits stemming from alleged cargo price-fixing and has received conditional immunity from antitrust investigators. Lufthansa also said it had applied for leniency to the US Department of Justice, the European Union Commission and other authorities and had received conditional immunity from all of them, reducing the risk of further penalties. Lufthansa had said in February it would co-operate with a probe being carried out by US and European officials into possible price-fixing of freight shipments by passenger and cargo airlines. American Airlines and United Airlines have both confirmed they received inquiries as part of the probe and have agreed to settle lawsuits, without paying out to plaintiffs. SAS revealed it had been raided by the European Commission, while British Airways, Air France/KLM and freight airline Cargolux said they had also been questioned.
