    Lufthansa's Eurowings says Air Berlin plane transfer almost done

    Lufthansa's (LHAG.DE) budget carrier Eurowings expects the transfer of planes from collapsed rival Air Berlin (AB1.DE) planes into its fleet to be completed by the end of July, it said on Friday. Eurowings has come under fire in Germany recently for delays and cancellations, partly caused by its rapid expansion as it tries to move into the gap left by Air Berlin. "Thanks to the successive introduction of further planes, we again expect a reliable flight operation," Eurowings CEO Thorsten Dirks wrote in a message to customers.

    Norwegian Air Shuttle ASA rose as much as 12 percent after Deutsche Lufthansa AG Chief Executive Officer Carsten Spohr said his company was in takeover discussions with the Scandinavian discount specialist.

The country suffered more lightning strikes in the first five months than in the whole of 2017, with planes hit by an average of three bolts a week, according to Thorsten Dirks, the Lufthansa board member responsible for the group’s Eurowings division. Aircraft have to undergo safety checks following lightning hits, taking them out of action for up to 16 hours.

    Taiwan urges courage, defiance of China's "bullying" over web references

    Taiwan hopes countries around the world can show courage in the face of pressure from China on their companies to list the self-ruled island as part of China on their websites, Taiwan's foreign ministry said on Thursday. China has demanded that foreign firms, and airlines in particular, begin referring to Taiwan as Chinese territory on their websites, along with Hong Kong and Macau, a move described by White House as "Orwellian nonsense". Taiwan is claimed by China as its own, and is China's most sensitive territorial issue and a potential military flashpoint.
