From October 2008 LX daily Zurich - Shanghai route will be reduced from daily to 6 weekly due to poor performance. Flight out of Zurich will not operate on Thursday.

This doesn't surprise me. Airlines have to realise that China isn't the goldmine they all think it is. And this just after they launched the route earlier this year. However this might just be temporary for the winter, but me thinks that they shouldnt have launched PVG in the first place.

I haven't heard of this though. Do you have a source?

I couldn't agree more. All the stampeding to get as many frequencies as possible to China has oversaturated the market. The same has happened to Europe - India to a certain extent.

Amen to this statement, the only option left maybe to serve 2nd rate cities a couple times a week.

Well Air Berlin quit even sooner. High fuel price was the killer?

China is an interesting market in its sheer size and superheated growth. Even so, the "rising" Chinese middle class that we are hearing so much about is very poor relative to those in USA and the Euro zone, so second-tier cities with populations well over 5-10m aren't sustaining the kind of service that their western counterparts would.

It will be interesting to watch how this could change over the next decade as their purchasing power may (or may not) come in line with the west. At any rate, it does seem that China is not the mint that it once was for the few airlines that had access and hold on the market. Best of luck to SWISS.

However, LX does have the advantage of being the only nonstop operator between Switzerland and China. Most other major European hubs also have at least one Chinese carrier in the market.
