BBC News, Berlin

"Tempelhof is the pearl of the German capital," says Klaus Eisermann.

He has been working at Tempelhof airport for the last 44 years, and he knows every nook and cranny.

As he drives me around the vast airfield, the monolithic terminal building stretches out in front of us.

It is claimed that there are only two other buildings in the world bigger than Tempelhof - the Pentagon, and Ceausescu's palace in Bucharest.

Delta and Northwest executives want to smoothly complete their deal to create the world's largest airline by the end of the year. But investors reacted negatively Tuesday, amid word there are no plans for further domestic flight cuts as well as the challenges of integrating companies with contrasting cultures, planes and labor relations.

The two airlines have very different relationships between management and workers, which was reflected as soon as Delta's acquisition of Northwest was announced Monday. Delta pilots support it. Northwest pilots oppose it. Fifteen minutes after the announcement, the union representing many Northwest ground workers pledged to fight it.

KATHMANDU, Nepal, Feb. 11 (UPI) -- Lukla, the airstrip near the foot of Mount Everest, is to be named after the first conquerors of the world's tallest peak in Nepal's Himalayan range.

The airstrip, closest to the 29,028-foot Everest, will be called the Tenzing Hillary Airport, the BBC reported, quoting the Himalayan kingdom's Tourism and Civil Aviation Minister Prithvi Subba Gurung.

The new name for the airport honors Nepalese Sherpa Tenzing Norgay and New Zealand's Edmund Hillary who, May 29, 1953, were the first to scale the peak.

Tenzing Norgay died in 1986 and Hillary died last month in New Zealand, the report said.

Gurung said the route from the airstrip to the 18,500-foot base came of Everest will be named the Tenzing Hillary Trekking Route. The trek through some of the most spectacular sights can take several days depending on the time needed for acclimatization.

Gurung told the BBC the Nepalese government is also considering naming a Himalayan mountain after the two climbers.

Mon Jan 14, 2:31 PM ET

LONDON - Virgin Atlantic said Monday it would fly one of its Boeing 747 planes on biofuel during a demonstration flight from London to Amsterdam next month.

Virgin Atlantic Chairman Richard Branson said the test flight, which he called the first of its kind, would yield crucial information on how to reduce aviation's carbon footprint.

Branson launched an alternative fuels division at Virgin in 2006, pledging the profits from his airline and trains for 10 years.

In the middle of 2007, Virgin trains began a six-month trial of a passenger train using biofuel, an experiment the company said could lead it to switch its entire fleet over to a mix of diesel and biofuel.

His green private equity fund, the Virgin Green Fund, has invested millions of dollars in biofuel startups such as Cilion, Ethanol Grain Processors, and Indiana Bio-Energy.
