I was looking at the rotations of the A333 fleet of SWISS and remarked some intra-european flights, especially to DUS, LHR and BRU. are these flights for the 330-crews and to keep the minimum amount of takeoff/landings at the requiered level? or is there another reason behind?

Back in the days, SR (and possibly LX too) used to schedule an MD11 on one of their morning ZRH-LHR flights that connected from Asia/Africa. KL had until even more recently a 763/A330 flight AMS-LHR for the same purpose.

Wish we had more wide-body opportunities flying city to city here in the US, aside from 767s, which I don't consider a widebody in the A330/747/777 sense (no offense 767s). Delta uses occasional 777/A330 LAX-ATL or ATL/JFK. And United an occasional 777 IAH-EWR or ORD-SFO-DEN. US Airways used A330 PHL-CLT for a brief time. But wish it was more. Oh well, such is the economics of air travel. The mighties need to be used abroad.
