BERLIN (Reuters) - A court in Britain will start proceedings on Nov. 19 in a case between Lufthansa and Laudamotion over leasing contracts, Lufthansa said on Friday.

*Lufthansa wants to end a contract to lease planes to rival Laudamotion, claiming that the Austrian carrier has failed to meet payments

*Laudamotion, which is backed by Ryanair (RYA.I), has rejected the allegations

*”We welcome the fact that the court wants to clear this up quickly,” a Lufthansa spokesman said
