PARIS (Reuters) - Air France-KLM denied on Monday having asked for 5,000 jobs cuts at loss-making Italian airline Alitalia.

On Sunday, Italian financial daily Il Sole 24 Ore reported that Air France-KLM had set tough conditions, including 5,000 job cuts, for investing more money in Alitalia.

Air France-KLM is Alitalia's biggest shareholder with a 25 percent stake.
