BERLIN (Reuters) - Insolvent German airline Air Berlin (AB1.DE) is continuing talks with easyJet (EZJ.L) on Thursday, a spokesman for Air Berlin said, without saying whether a contract was expected to be signed with the British airline.

Air Berlin said late last month that negotiations with Lufthansa and easyJet would continue until Oct. 12.

Lufthansa said earlier it would sign a deal on Thursday to buy parts of Air Berlin.
