Great to see LX in Star Alliance! More options to Central Europe!
Quoting Vega (Reply 8): Since we're "hoping", I wish they'd fly SFO-ZRH, or restart PHL-ZRH.
Actually, since UA does IAD-ZRH, and LX does have JFK-ZRH, I doubt they'll need a PHL-ZRH run, but don't count out US once the A350s arrive. As for SFO, I've heard most Europe-SFO runs are very low-yielding, notice UA's discontinuation of SFO-CDG.

Swissair used to serve PHL, even when there were more U.S. - ZRH flights. US doesn't have to wait for the 350s as a 333 or 767 will easily make the trip. Actually I predict US will fly the route by summer 2007.

Quoting SU (Reply 1): Yeap - Congrats to Swiss and South African!
SA ground staff seem to be struggling with Amadeus. Check-in is taking up a ridiculous amount of time. I am at JNB right now, on my way back home, and the domestic departures hall looks like a zoo. The Voyager FF mileage summaries is mucked up and I was just told that SA are only expecting the situation to stabilize towards the end of April.

This is wishful thinking, unfortunately. Swiss does not have enough long-haul aircrafts. When and if they get the two more they will increase the number of flights to destinations which are not going daily at the moment. And if they had capacity to (re)open new destinations it would be China long before YVR,
