Swiss International Air Lines will make adjustments to its long-haul network in summer 2004 and winter 2004-05 that will permit it to reduce its long-haul fleet by two to 18 aircraft as specified under the present business plan.
Service to Cairo will be increased from five to six weekly frequencies. In addition, from summer to winter, flights to Boston, Montreal, Hong Kong and Tokyo Narita will decrease slightly while services to Miami, Johannesburg and Bangkok-Singapore will increase. Flights to Newark, Los Angeles and Sao Paulo also will decrease in the summer.
Services between Sao Paulo and Buenos Aires no longer will be operated by Swiss but will be entrusted to a partner airline under a codeshare arrangement. Swiss said it is currently in talks with a number of candidate carriers regarding these flights.
**The previous post only had the Latin American topic of LX discussed and not its other intercontinental destinations!!!

Increasing flights into BKK/SIN and JNB? More than daily flights?
Reducing NRT? I mean JL went back to two weekly flights and JL sells on LX as well. LX was very happy when they where granted daily landing rights at NRT and now they are going to decrease flights at Tokyo?
Where do you have these news from?

Gulf Air is so screwy you don't know what they are going to do. They could start flights to Timbuktu and it wouldn't surprise me. No matter what hogan says I think they are losing millions and millions, and have to stop this expansion nonsense to get its act together.

Gulf Air has written off SFO for their future plans and now the plan is to fly BAH-JFK-BAH nonstop with a single A 343 totally devoted to the route so I gather it shall be 4 weekly nonstop flights with a lot of cargo bound for Baghdad as well as "X" number of US troops-Govt personnel on board on every flight bound for Baghdad.
Also remember DHL and GF have a huge hub in BAHRAIN and DHL flies 4-6 times daily AB4Fs and B 727Fs to BAGHDAD from BAH.
