I'm glad I took a picture two days ago... Hopefully you weren't there, FlyAirbus. This would have really ruined this picture.

FlyAirbus if you don't care don't post a message here!

Not liking an airline is one thing, hoping that they have to phase out planes and layoff people is another thing. Your post is absolutely disgusting.

RJ100 - You find that disgusting?? I'll tell you what's disgusting:

Good friends of mine used to work for Sabena. Thanks to swissair, everyone's out of a job. For those of you who think that 'swiss' is a different company, then you are either blind, ignorant or naive. It was a good excuse not to owe anything to anybody, nothing more nothing less. Now THAT'S what I call DISGUSTING!

I will never forget what the swiss have done. Out of principle I would never EVER fly on a swiss aircraft in my life again! I would prefer to walk. Obviously I'm not the only one. Why else would things go so bad for them.

Sould I feel sorry for those who may loose their jobs? How could I possibly feel sorry???

I can not respect those who do not respect others!

That's all I will answer to this.

Why is it being phased out of service?

FlyAirbus: I will not comment that. We already had too many Swissair/Sabena war topics on this forum. Just one thing: Never make the employees responsible for what the management decides!

Not good to see another A-bus leaving the Swiss fleet.

By the Way GERARDO:

Any pictures of the Spotter meeting from June 7th around???
Would love to see them!

@FlyAirbus

Wow, I would have guessed your age 15-19... Well anyway, really childish remarks...

And anyhow, who cares which airlines you don't like? No one asked.




swissair/+/ we care

@FlyAirbus

I almost lost my job and I know a lot who actually lost their job at SWISSAIR AND SABENA and therefore I find your comment absolutely disgusting. I suggested deletion for your rant thread.....

Back to the topic, I hope that oscar bravo will be airborne again soon somewhere on this planet, used to fly this bird in the past. Farewell!

Cheers, Thomas

@Spotterboy: sure there are pictures around. You should have seen us during the bus tour. It was a little bus with 2 wagons. It was easy to guess, in which one were the photographers.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Anyway, I don't think, I will upload much, due to lack of time.

Gerardo

Excellent, because no airline needs passengers like you...!

Back to topic:

@9V-SFE: This is plan of the reorganization program with HB-IOA and IOB to leave the fleet. HB-IWP (MD-11) is next, a few more to come.

Seems like there's plenty of blame to go around on the subject of whether SR caused the demise of SN... or whether it was the other way around. Either way, they both went down together; SR to resurface as Swiss and SN as SNBrussels. Inasmuch as once well-managed SR was myopic enough to take on the problems of troubled airlines (SN had turned a profit just once in 37 years, IW was never more than marginal at best) I would place the heavier guilt on SR who couldn't seem to resist the folly of forming an alliance as an end in itself.

I find your post pretty disgusting. That's all I will say to that.

When will SWISS present their new Business Plan?

Ok, but maybe somebody will answer the question? Why this aircraft is being phased out?

Lindy: I guess it's due to overcapacity. There is also a rumour that SWISS is going to phase out all the remaining A-321s when they will present a new business plan this summer.
