Just saw on the swiss TV news that armed guards were present on all LX flights to sensible destinations.
However, the "cantonale" police decided to remove the guards from the plane as the company is not national anymore. No decision have been yet made about whose responsibility is the safety of LX planes.

Of course it makes a lot of sense to broadcast something like that, doesn't it? You would thought they could have thrashed that out somewhere behind closed doors rather than making a statement on TV news......some people really need to put their brains into gear before they open their mouth!

1. the company is still swiss owned and based - nobody knows when LH will hold a majority share
2. planes carry a HB- registration, thus making them swiss territory
3. what's your source? anything in writing?
