During a strike this year a Swissair aircraft was "captured" by the SN strikers. The aircraft and employees had to wait a long to before they could depart again. Since then Swissair aircraft diverted their flights to MST (Maastricht-Aachen) several times to avoid SN employees taking over their aircraft.

According to their website, all flight operations have been suspended pending a bank decision. SOunds like more nails being hammered into the coffin. Quelle Domage!
From Swissair webpage:
Swissair flight operations suspended – next decision at 14:00
Zurich-Airport, October 2, 2001 -– Swissair’s flight operations were suspended at 12:30 CET. All aircraft that are currently airborne en route will continue their flights to their destination as scheduled.
Swissair is engaged in intensive negotiations with the banks to ensure the continuation of its flight operations. A final decision is due at 14:00.

Indeed, Swissair cancelled the 7 flights to Brussels today. And indeed they are 'afraid' for the SN-employees; and only because they are starting to know what SR is really doing to SN (breaking contracts,...).
But, who does need to fly to Zürich can count on SN-services. SN flies 3 times today to Zürich instead of SR.
