It's been a while since we have had one of these, and I'm not sure about the correct number, but the latest i found was number 30, please correct me if I'm wrong.

I can announce that LX is to get a new A320 with sharklets in march, unfotunately it will be the only example within the fleet for the time being, as all other do not/will not have them installed.

Secondly, I was looking for flights to Africa in may, and stumbled across QRs offer, saying that ZRH-DOH will be operated by their new 787s. Can anyone confirm that?

Thirdly, we're hearing here that LX's decision on the replacement of the A340s has been made, but I cannot disclose anything else at this time, I don't want to run into trouble  

Take care everyone, and I hope you have all been smarter than me and actually had your cars equipped with winter tires

Hi Sandro,

I noticed a Swiss A321 taking of from BUD to ZRH just now, I guess because of the cancellations yesterday. Nice change.
In 10 days I'll be flying with Swiss for the first time, looking forward to it.

Hi Sandro,

Indeed it has been a while since we had this topic up and running!

Will it be a brand-new 320?

Also I can't wait to know what the 340 will be replaced with!

Yes, this is correct. Qatar Airways will start his Boeing 787 operations from both Geneva and Zurich pretty soon (very early 2013).

Thank's Sandro for the interesting info. I understand that you must tell about the 340 replacement. But do you probably know when SWISS will inform?

I think the A340 replacement will be the B777ER. It is the only wide body with the least waiting time.

Any idea what LX will do with the two A333 which will be delivred next year, in March and October if I'm correct.

I guess they have to replace 340 on some routes for the "new" destination SIN.

So far only ZRH has been confirmed, along with LHR, double daily FRA and double daily MUC.

The PEK route will change to A333 on March 30th and will free up the A343s for the new SIN route. The A333 coming online in October should open up more room for expansion as far as I know.

Ok I'm gonna say it'll be the A350 for the sake of fleet commonality.   BTW are we talking about a partly replacement or an entire sweep?

From what we heard in the past, IAD or AUH might be considered as new destinations.

For the 2 new 330's, do they come in the version with extended range which Airbus introduced recently ? It might allow Swiss to use the 330 for destinations like BKK

The only increased long haul destination I saw for the winter time table is Miami. But LX took the aircarft which flew 4 additional weekly flights to ORD during the summer.

I think the new 330 replaced 340 capacity needed for PEK.

The capacity for the 4 weekly rotations comes out the cancelled Cameroon service

The most likely explanation would be that they have more aircraft in maintenance during the winter. There have also been quite a few short-haul flights operated with LX A333 in the past weeks to BCN, DUS, HAJ and GVA. There's also currently a LH 733 operating for Swiss that usually does two flights a day to each GVA and TXL.
Is LX short on short-haul aircraft or crews again? Maybe some LX insider can shed light on that topic.

Not confirmed, just their opinion based on all the facts and fleet commonality issues (not to mention pilot shortage due to overtime rules). I would not think Swiss can afford to divide the pilot teams into Boeing and Airbus based on the fact that they don't have enough pilots now!
