Last Swiss Saab 2000 Flight - When?

Does anybody know what will be the last commercial Swiss Saab 2000 flight? And will there be some special farewell flights, as they did when retiring the MD-11? With the "Concordino" having been an important aircraft for Crossair's but also Swiss' regional flights, it would really deserve a sort of special event before being retired from the fleet. Unless there are special farewell flights, I'd like to book myself on the last commercial flight, so can anybody help?

Thanks in advance, Alex.

Isn't it interesting to see how the Saab 2000 doesn't have any support on a.net? The last Swiss MD-11 flight was discussed on a.net for months, but nobody beside me seems to care about the last Saab 2000 flight. I always liked the Crossair / Swiss Saab 2000 and it would be so nice to have a sort of "last goodbye" flight. If anybody knows anything specific about the Saab 2000 retirement / the last commercial flight, please let me know.
Regards, Alex.

Alex, have you tried to ask this question in one of the German-speaking forums?

I saw this thread on flightforum.ch but I don't know if someone posted the date of the last Saab 2000 flight (the thread is several pages long and I didn't read all).

If it isn't mentioned there, you can always start a new thread in the same forum, I am sure that someone there knows the date of the last flight and if there is a special event regarding the retirement of the Saab 2000.

Hi Guys, i'am also still a great fan of the S2000. When i was a little boy, i had so many wonderfull flights on S340 and S2000 with Crossair. It�s a big shame that i wasn�t interested in Aviation. So i never sat on the Jump what was very often possible.

I had my last S2000 flight on 16.08 I have written a Tripreport, but only in german. http://www.airliners.de/community/fo...um/viewtopic.php?t=25492&highlight

enjoy.  Smile

I don't think that there will be a farewell flight, so many people especially the crews are sad about the retirement. Many of them will lose there Jobs. Sometimes aviation is very hard.

according to my information, it will be a LX 1005 DUS BSL wich departs at 2020 in the evening.
I do not have the exact data when the last flight will be flown, but DUS remains the only S2000 destination after 31/10, so I suppose we do not have to look further, and this is the last operational flight off course...

So keep an eye to DUS guys, I feel already very depressed when I see the good 2000's in BRU today...

I will do a roundtrip DUS-BSL-DUS when the date arrives and then take the ICE back to Brussels, but that means I won't be on the very last flight...

(and I won't forget the Belgian pralines, (godiva, leonidas for both the crew's and PAX!)

I hope it's not too late to say thank you for your replies!

@Patrick: Thanks for the link, unfortunately the topic deals more with the usual Crossair/Swiss arguments than with the Saab 2000.

@Swisser: Are you sure about Swiss Saab 2000 BSL-DUS flights after 31 October? I took the time to look up just a few dates in November - yes the flights are still listed with LX-code and S20 equipment, however at least on all dates I checked, these flights were marked as -NOOP- and the LH-flights were offered as LX-codeshare but with LH equipment. I'm rather sure the Saab 2000 won't be active any more with the beginning of winter schedule.

So fly them as long as you can!

But I'll certainly investigate it thoroughly!
