Swiss 320 Named Agassizhorn

I'm a bit confused. Compiling my logbook I remember having flown on a Swiss 320 named Aggasizhorn. If not mistaken, it was in a Swiss Sun charter layout.

I'm still looking for the correct registration of the aircraft (as per 01NOV05). I though it was HB-IJX but on the web I found a picture of Agassizhorn quoting HB-IJQ.

The Swiss website it self isn't very helpful as well when it comes to the registration of the aircraft named Agassizhorn.

Can anyone help me with the correct registration of this aircraft. The flight operated as LX2800/01NOV.

Hi there

LX2800 was operated on 1. Nov with HB-IJQ. This one is listed as "Basòdino". "Aggasizhorn" is assigned to an unknown reg called "Charter". To be honest, I don't know which one these "Charter" could be, as there are - in my opinion - 5 more A320 on that list you mention, than really operated by Swiss.

Regarding Swiss Sun: AFAIK, the 3 Swiss Sun are:
HB-IJU: Bietschhorn
HB-IJV: Wildspitz
HB-IJW: Bachtel

Of course, seeing, how outdated the list on swiss.com really is, I'd say, anything is possible  Wink

Hope this helps, but I guess, not  Wink

Hello,

according to JP Aggissizhorn is an A320 reg. HB-IJQ.

Hope this helps.

thank you very much. I noticed that there must be something wrong on the Swiss website. I don't have the latest JP but as per N774UA it seems that they changed regs the 320.

May I ask where you have the reg. from?

Can anyone confirm that this was an ex Swiss Sun plane?

Swiss Sun has only 3 A320s as indicated by Gerardo. HB-IJQ is/was never one of them.
Moreover, HB-IJQ is supposed to be named "Basódino".
I have no record of any Swiss A320 (or any other Swiss aircraft)named "Aggissizhorn".
But my records are only waiting to be proven wrong.

Swiss Sun is gone by now anyway.
The aircraft was named Agassizhorn and funny enough it is also listed on the Swiss website as a Charter aircraft but doesn't show a registration. Maybe one of HB-IJ U/V/W was named Agassizhorn before or HB-IJQ was never operated for Swiss Sun but for Swiss charter flights?

Am I correct if assumed, that the Swiss Safety Cards for an A320E where used on the charter config aircraft?
