I have a few questions re LX's Avros:
1. Have the 4 RJ85s left the fleet yet?
2. Will the RJ85s be replaced by more RJ100s? I seem to recall an earlier thread that seemed to indicate they would be replaced to keep the total Avro fleet at 24 but forget the details. If they don't replace them, how will this affect the current schedule since they are already contracting out certain routes to other carriers (Cirrus, Helvetic, Flightline)?
3. How many RJ100s now have the new lightweight Recaro seats?

Quoting OceansWorld (Reply 2): According to DPTS, Belle Air has announced its intention to operate during the whole winter a twice weekly GVA-PRN service with its MD-82.
I wouldn't hold my breath. Belle Air has the habit of announcing routes that it never starts, or canceling them right after. Although demand is larger from PRN, it's strange that GVA is being served from PRN as opposed to TIA, since Belle Air has no flights to either GVA or PRN currently. This means that they will either have to serve GVA from TIA as well, or most likely start flights from TIA to PRN.

2007 interim result: profit of 46.1 million Swiss francs, plus 24.5 percent versus prior-year period, resignation of CEO Josef Felder as of 31 August 2008. Following a profit of 87.5 million Swiss francs for the full 2006 financial year, Unique (Flughafen Zürich AG) has reported a profit of 46.1 million Swiss francs for the first six months of 2007. The passenger volume at Zurich Airport rose by 8.1 percent versus the same period last year, while the number of flight movements increased by 2.1 percent. Unique (Flughafen Zürich AG) anticipates a total of around 20.4 million passengers for the full 2007 financial year.
that's good news much earlier than expected, they planned by feb 2008 or so to have the entire Avro fleet with the new seats. The rest of the RJ85's ayway are gone by the end of the year with I gues a replacement of 4 RJ100's?
BTW: Anybody know why LX008 to ORD on HB-IQO (A332) got cancelled today?
