As far as I know it was to be 31March (internal work reports) However I have yet to hear anything on this matter since, so perhaps it could be a grudual entry or be pushed back to June. I think stay tuned on this matter and expect an announcement in the coming weeks.

I have a question for anyone who knows:
Why does SWISS Travel Club award miles cost 70K+ from US to Europe for example? And various other airlines such as STAR or OneWorld require only 50K and VS only 40K to LHR?? Even on AS when redeeming miles on BA it's 50K and AA is 40K. What's the biggie about LX or BA compared to VS or AA?

Kimberly, I think that BA's Executive Club is merging with the Swiss FFP and that therefore BA Executive Club Miles will be earned on all Swiss flights. Part of The BA/LX deal that included LHR slots I believe.
At the same time Swiss committed itself to joining Oneworld but no firm date for the completion of this was given.
There's more on this BA press release from September: -
