'Suisse' is french
Svizra' is rumantsch (A language that's only spoken in a small part of Switzerland by only a few people)
'Svizzera' is italian
AFAIK, when the new "Swiss"-brand was first presented, there was talk that some a/c would have titles in these languages... To represent all parts of Switzerland... Something that has not come true so far... (And never will, I guess)

Maybe SWISS was talking about other swiss airlines, who knows!!! Interesting about the rumantsch is the fact that we the portuguese can clearly communicate with them, I had a friend from the canton of Grisons and we had an excelent time matching words!
Now back to SWISS I think it would be nice actually to put some aircraft with the name in the 4 languages, I bet all people would guess it's SWISS, the worst they would look to the tail and find out the flag there!!!
Regards and I really miss a nice swiss fondue!!!
