They dropped Atlanta because there were not enough passenger loads to accomadate the flight. ATL was simply not profitable as an origin or destination airport. Delta is able to keep the flight because ATL is their ultrasupermega hub, and they get enough pax traffic routed through ATL onto the ZRH flight, making it profitable.

I am actually surprised that JFK is only getting one daily flight to ZRH. I would have expected two.

The new Summer 2002 schedule is essentially the same as the current SR/LX Winter 2001/2 schedule in terms of number of cities served and frequencies. ATL and SFO have been suspended since Oct'01 with the bankruptcy situation. The aircraft that will be pulled have basically been grounded already...

The only thing is that "SR" will no longer will be the code with the start of the summer schedule; all flights will be "LX" (the current Crossair code). Currently, only the intercontinental flights remain as "SR"-coded flights..quite sad.

Addititional to the destinations mentioned above, Sion is another domestic destination of Swiss. At least their website says that they keep on flying into Sion.

I am happy to see that Swiss keeps such a network.
About SCL, when I flew there a few years ago, SR didn't fly their MD11 there any more.
In Buenos Aires, I have been transfered in a Ladeco B727 specialy charterd by SR (Nice flight, nice service, as Ladeco was a great airline, but no SR flight to SCL)
For those of you having question about the future of SR and SN planes, you will see very soon in LAX or in Japan (and I hope very soon in CDG) the 2 new Air Tahiti Nui A340. They are 2 ex SN.

The above flights are without codeshare, are they? Think they will come back to Kuala Lumpur but operated by MH and they also sell Colombo on UL. but I think the list above was only for regular flights operated by SR.

WoW, that would make TLV the only route with 2 daily A330 from ZRH!!! That would make TLV the biggest long ranged route from ZRH, WoW.

Some of those frequencies look very uneconomical...look for some downgrades soon IMO. JFK will possibly end up with twice daily service after the other services are decreased.

As for SFO, expect them to come back to the Bay Area. If they join Oneworld chances are good that they will continue their service. Not to SFO but to SJC. SJC is constantly becoming a more important gateway for AA. Swiss' US strategy is to only fly to partner hubs (such as AA: JFK, ORD, BOS, LAX...). Also, if they join, expect the EWR flight to switch to JFK and then once again we will have 4 AA/LX JFK-Switzerland flights. Now we're talking!
