FRANKFURT (AFP) - Germany's leading airline Lufthansa said on Tuesday that it had reached a deal with cabin crew representatives to end a bitter dispute that had led to work stoppages.

The accord entails a near 4.6-per-cent salary hike on average, said the UFO trade union that represents some 18,000 cabin staff.

Lufthansa said the deal would be valid for two years from Jan 1.

The airline also agreed to refrain from operational layoffs until the end of 2014.
