Hi all,

I was wondering with LX receiving its new A333s what a/c will be used on GVA-JFK once all the A332s are gone. Will they use the a343 or the A333. I ask this because im sure LX receives lots of first and business class pax on this flight having geneva and jfk big UN cities and because of swiss banks. Which is why the a332 is perfect for this route, but they are going The a340 has more room up front while the a333 has more seats but it has less and business and equal first.

If anyone could clear this up for me it would be great. Thanx in advance.

A333 has only 3 less business seats than the A343, and the same number of F seats.

I don't know for sure but I foresee the A333 flying this route in a W pattern, ZRH-JFK-GVA-JFK-ZRH.



oh boy!!!

Does LX currently operate such open jaw routings to JFK?

Pretty sure they did when A332s were on both routes since they have to get back to ZRH to do maint and what not, unless they shuttle GVA-ZRH. Now they're using A333 and A343 on ZRH-JFK, so no.



oh boy!!!

When all 333 are delivered LX plans to use the 333 for the shorter long-haul routes as all US east coast flights, middle East and India, some African destinations and the 343 for all long long-haul as NRT, LAX, GRU, JNB, HKG, BKK, PVG etc. So I guess the GVA-JFK flight will be a 333.

Does Swiss carry a lot of connections on JFK-GVA? That would be one way to fill up coach. When I flew them DME-JFK and back they offered JFK-GVA-ZRH-DME on the return. kind of regret not doing it, but got to try the 333 on JFK-ZRH which was excellent.
Do they still run the 332 on ZRH-GVA? I remember reading a TR about it way back when.

What now?

Very rarely. I have been on LX 332s (and even a 343 once) GVA-ZRH several times over the past few years when they were substituted for A320/321 on peak weekend days during holiday periods when they needed the extra capacity due to the many GVA passengers connecting at ZRH.

The problem with the 332s on GVA-JFK-GVA is that there is a lot of premium traffic but the 332 has a very outdated business class product with the old and uncomfortable reclining seats inherited from Swissair. The sooner those 332s disappear from that route, the better.

Which flight do they put A332s on?
All I see is: LX15 = A333 and LX17 = A343.
Along with LX19 EWR-ZRH which is Privatair 737-800 all J.

This changes daily. Usually one 333 and either one 332 or 343 on LX14/15, 16/17.
