Are you sure? I have a crap picture of the Vietnam A330 currently sitting in Zurich at the moment taken through the tour bus window (on 22/08/09) and I'm pretty sure I can make out the registration as HB-IQG. Theres also the number 371 on the front nose wheel gear doors.
Can you say 'Beer Can' without sounding like a Jamaican saying 'Bacon'?

VN-A375 has been flying around Asia since early July and the only other ex-Swiss A330-200 that has been seen in Zurich in Vietnam Airlines colours was HB-IQP. So unless somehow we all messed up the identity of VN-A375 and it is not ex-HB-IQG, then I would be pretty sure it has left and gone to Vietnam Airlines in early July. There are no other ex-Swiss A330-200 that are currently out of service other than HB-IQK that is parked in Zurich, but still in Swiss colours as far as I know.
