EU says conditions needed in Lufthansa bailout, seeks deal

BRUSSELS (AP) — The EU competition chief says she is not “creating extra hurdles” for Lufthansa after the airline balked at accepting a 9 billion-euro German government rescue package because of what it said were tough EU conditions. Margrethe Vestager said Friday that EU rules require bailouts to include measures that would maintain a level playing field. Vestager insists the rules are the same for all member states in order to preserve a level playing field when the health crisis is over.
