Philippe Bruggisser, the CEO of the former SAir Group is planning to start a new airline. Euroblue would operate Airbus A319s in a business class configuration on flights mainly to the Middle East and Turkey. The Tribune de Genève said that he already raised CHF100 millions.
Besides this, lawsuits are pending against Mr Bruggisser for frauds, among other things.
After he and his colleagues destroyed the Swiss aviation sector, I wonder what he's really up to! Some people just never learn...

I wonder why he doesn´t go back to his roots which would mean placing an order for at least 20 A-380´s (with some more on option) and sending them to all places all over the world where nobody wants to fly.

You'd think that after all this time Bruggisser would be in jail. Sometimes Swiss law just lacks compared to other countries. He lead a national pride to bankruptcy, cost the jobs of thousands and cost $2 billion to the confederation. Unfortunately, this is one of the cases where I'd have liked the Swiss to some sort of similar action as the US did with Enron...
