In my opinion, I don't feel it would be a good idea for the "new" Swiss carrier to carry the name Swissair on its aircraft. Don't forget, this carrier left tens of thousands of pax stranded worldwide, and their tickets, and the tickets of thousands of future travellers were rendered null and void. From a marketing perspective, the name Swissair will incur much mistrust and anger, especially on those pax affected by the shutdown
of SR. Not to mention the anger and grief inflicted on travel agents worldwide. Perhaps it should be said that
the argument would be that educated, informed peopl,e would KNOW the name Swissair, should it be adopted, is a name only, but never underestimate the mood and feelings of the travelling public.

Why royal? Switzerland isn't a kingdom so there's no royalty. Forget that one.
In my eyes Swissair is the best but because of obvious reasons, the name's got to go. Crossair I don't like, I've hated it ever since hearing it. It's got a good reputation in Europe but overseas, Crossair is known as a low-cost carrier which had a crash in 1999. So that's gotta change.
My favorite is: Swiss World Airways and then Swiss Air Lines or Swiss Airways. The first one would be cool but I have no clue about the legal issues.

they should keep Swissair.
it´s highly recognized all around the globe and stands for quality and excellence.
this great image was overshadowed in the last few months, but i´m sure if Swissair will keep flying that in a few years to come the events of this october won´t be remember for long.
If only pure sweetness was offered, why's this bitter taste left in my mouth.

Of course I am aware that a Swiss World Airways has existed, that's where I got the name from. I think it's a good name. I also mentioned that I don't have a clue about the legal issues concerning the rights of the name Swiss World Airways.

In my opinion, it will be Crossair for european flights and Swissair for long-haul flights.
Anyway, nobody knows what will be the future of the new company. Swissair FA doesnt really like Crossair FA because they think Crossair is also responsible for Swissair problems.
The new company will have to join a global alliance and forget Qualyflyer.
