Bonjour all !

I hate to see such a great airline worldly known for its excellence to have to go to such extended measures to save itself.
I do hope that everyone at Swissair will survive this ordeal that poor managers put them into. Employees work extremely hard for their customers, the shareholders and themselves and yet all their efforts were ruined by some extremely poor management measures.
I am sure that Swissair will be another great european phenix and will fly... high.

Also, can someone tell me where Philippe Brugisser is now ?

Happy Flying,

AF Cabin Crew.

I love Swissair. I would hate to see them go like this. Hope they struck some luck. I had many experiances with Swissair and all were excellent. very pleasant atmousphere, clean aircrafts, and most of all refreshing! The airline that is most trusted by business travellers. Swissair, I wish you the best.

Hello,

Gerardo, really, are you sure? I heard the following from very good non-internet sources:

-- A friend of his fixed him up for a job at SAA. He was there for a few month before his and his friend dissapeared with money.
-- He is now in a mental home in the Zurich area.

I believe the first one but question the second one.

The rumour about Bruggisser in India is from inside Swissair. But of course, it's only a rumour.

BTW, a lawyer has filed a claim to put Bruggisser and Schorderet in imprisonment on remand.
