Are you sure? The only flights I am aware of are codeshare flights operated by SK. SK will operate twice daily... I couldn't find any other flights to OSL operated by LX.

When I was at the airport (ZRH) today at about 11:00 all (or most flights) from Italy (MXP, FCO) were cancelled (LX, AZ and other airlines). Does anybody know what happened? Strike?

Edited: I saw on the Zurich airport page that only few flights from MXP, FCO and Venice were cancelled. Though surprising that at least five flights from Italy were cancelled today.

There's an ATC, handling agent and airport authority strike in Italy today.
2 of 3 flights to VCE, 3 of 4 to FCO and 8 of 9 MXP should be operating.

Thanks. I saw at least two FCO flight cancelled (LX and AZ). As I thought, a strike. I do not understand these people. They only fuck the passengers.

Another (for me interesting) observation today at ZRH: the CO and an AA flight both took off on r/w 28. I always thought that 28 with its 2500 meters is too short for a trans Atlantic flight. Probably they were not heavy loaded or is it always enough for a 767 (-200, -300)? Conditions today: sunny about 4 ° C, not much wind.

At GVA, CO B762s use less than the 2500m (about 2100-2200m) of ZRH rwy 28 to take off!

Finally, this won't happen. EY will send its "usual" A332. So no need to rush.

Just wondered why there is no codeshare on LG flights from Luxembourg to GVA. LG is a LH partner and they codeshare on all flights from Luxembourg to Germany. I just thought that it would be a matter of time until there would be a codeshare between LG and LX too but until now nothing happend. Any thoughts?

ZRH - Last week even a B767-400 took off from Rwy 28, thus with a climb angle reminding me of an Antonov 12... On the other hand, the Royal Jordanian A340-200 left on Saturday also via Rwy 28 and climbed like a rocket...

I don't see the logic in that. Why should LX have codeshare agreements with LG? Just because LH owns LX?

[quote=Joelatbsl,reply=16][/qu

The A340's of LX flying to CAI and TLV depart out of Runway 28 almost every day. However it's a short flying time which means much less fuel. But I gues when weather conditions or / and Pax with Cargo are not high transatlantic flights are also able to take off from 28.

Yeah that was my thought LH owns LX and also has a share in LG. Also LG and LX have the same Frequent Flyer program.

Yes, LG is listed as a Miles & More airline partner. But still that doesn't mean that there has to be a codeshare agreement, it simply means that you can earn miles on LG routes if you're a member of M&M. JU operates daily flights between ZRH and BEG and has no codeshare agreements with LX.

I actually don't know exactly but I think it can't be too bad as they upgrade the flight to daily. They get quite a lot passengers from LH because they continue to SCL. A few months ago I was on a late evening flight GVA-ZRH. There was a huge group of French people who transferred in Zurich to the GRU-SCL flight.
