World - Pilot told Lufthansa in 2009 of `previous episode of severe depression`


Lufthansa said Tuesday that the co-pilot of the crashed Germanwings jet had informed the airline in 2009 that he had previously suffered from severe depression. The airline said it had handed additional documents, in particular medical and training documents, to prosecutors in the western city of Duesseldorf after `further internal investigations`. These also included email correspondence from co-pilot Andreas Lubitz to his flight training school, where he, at one point, interrupted his pilot training for several months, it said in a statement. `In this correspondence he informed the Flight Training Pilot School in 2009, in the medical documents he submitted in connection with resuming his flight training, about a `previous episode of severe depression`,` Lufthansa said.

Business - Germanwings disaster will not affect image of budget air travel: easyJet


By Sarah Young AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - The disaster at budget airline Germanwings which killed 150 people will not harm the image of low-cost air travel in Europe, easyJet chief executive Carolyn McCall said on Tuesday. Germanwings, founded in 2002 as a budget carrier, was acquired by full-service airline Lufthansa in 2009, and the parent company has expanded it into its main short-haul operator to battle competition from low-cost carriers such as easyJet and Ryanair . McCall, in Amsterdam to open a new base for the airline, said the Germanwings crash was a matter for all airlines. `This is not a budget airline issue.

World - Mandela grandson convicted of assault


Nelson Mandela`s oldest grandson, who is also a member of South Africa`s parliament, was found guilty Tuesday of assaulting a motorist two years ago in the latest scandal to tarnish the Mandela family. A magistrates` court in Mthatha, in Eastern Cape province, heard charges brought against Mandla Mandela by a local motorist, who accused the 40-year-old of assaulting him during a road-rage incident. `The magistrate found Mandla Mandela guilty of assault with grievous bodily harm, and acquitted him on a charge of pointing a firearm,` said Luxolo Tyali, a spokesman for the prosecution. Mandela, who is also the tribal chief of Mvezo village, the late Mandela`s birthplace, has been a member of parliament for the African National Congress (ANC) since 2009.

Business - EU regulators query Luxembourg on McDonald`s tax deals: source


European Union antitrust regulators have asked Luxembourg for information on its tax rulings for McDonald`s after labor unions accused the U.S. fast food chain of avoiding taxes, a person involved in the issue said on Tuesday. The move, which neither the EU nor Luxembourg would immediately confirm, falls well short of the proceedings the EU has instigated against other U.S. multinationals in Luxembourg and elsewhere, where Brussels believes unfairly low taxation may have distorted competition. Unions from the United States and Europe and British-based charity War on Want last month urged the European Commission to investigate what they said involved about 1 billion euros ($1.07 billion) in tax between 2009 and 2013. `The Commission has sent a letter to Luxembourg asking them to clarify the facts,` the source told Reuters.

World - Lufthansa flight school knew of crash pilot`s depression


By Victoria Bryan BERLIN (Reuters) - The German pilot who crashed a plane in the French Alps last week, killing 150 people, told officials at a Lufthansa training school in 2009 that he had gone through a period of severe depression, the airline said on Tuesday. The statement is potentially damaging for the airline and its CEO Carsten Spohr, who told reporters last week that the carrier knew of no reason why 27-year-old Andreas Lubitz might deliberately crash a plane. The fact that Lufthansa officials were aware that Lubitz suffered from depression raises questions about its screening process for pilots as it faces the threat of legal action from relatives of the victims. Lufthansa said Lubitz broke off his pilot training for a period of several months but then passed medical checks confirming his fitness to fly.

Business - EU regulators query Luxembourg on McDonald`s tax avoidance claims: source


European Union antitrust regulators have asked Luxembourg for more information on its tax rulings on McDonald`s after labor unions and a charity accused the U.S. fast food chain of avoiding taxes, a person involved in the issue said on Tuesday. Umbrella organizations for unions representing millions of workers in the United States and Europe and British-based charity War on Want last month urged the European Commission to investigate what they said involved about 1 billion euros ($1.07 billion) in tax between 2009 and 2013. `The Commission has sent a letter to Luxembourg asking them to clarify the facts,` said the source, who declined to be named because of the sensitivity of the matter. McDonald`s did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
