hi

twenty-fife minutes turnaround time for an A343 looks very ambitious...  Wink
...but it would be great to see that LX serves PEK!

The schedule shows turns of 45 minutes, 25 minutes and 1 hour. Southwest or Ryannair can do that, but Swiss with an A340 can't. Something is not correct, unless the dates aren't correct.


If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

I believe it will be operated as a triangle route in two different variants:

ZRH-PEK-PVG-ZRH and ZRH-PVG-PEK-ZRH on the dates shown.

Hence all the confusion.
