Family Leave comes to German Aviation. European countries are unmatched in their “sensitivity” to personal issues. Now frequent flyers can take advantage of this sensitivity!
Top level Lufthansa Elites can now stay that way if they stop flying as long as they have children. This fascinating new rule they just announced:
Lufthansa Senators and Frequent Travellers who would be unable to maintain their status during maternity leave can now retain their status. The status extension is valid for one year at a time, and can be used by mothers or fathers.
As I read the “one year at a time” line – if you and your wife are a Senator now, and you then have 5 children, one per year, husband and wife both stay Senator for that 5 year period.
