Swiss had started their code-share operations with Malaysia Airlines (MAS) today, May 1, 2002. Swiss will place their code on MAS' three times weekly Kuala Lumpur (KUL) - Zurich (ZRH) v.v. services. The three weekly services are currently operated using a B747-400, which would be changed to a B777-200 services on June 7, 2002. With effective from July 1, 2002, MAS' service to Zurich will become a turnaround service once again after rerouting it's flight from KUL-ZRH-FCO to KUL-FCO-VIE. MAS used to code-share with Swissair, but the agreement was suspended when Swissair collapse.
The flight number for ZRH-KUL is LX 4310 while the return, KUL-ZRH is LX 4311. The funny thing is, these flights is not loaded up into Swiss' CRS, but they are up in Amadeus. And neither airlines have announced this new code-share deal. Anybody had any ideas on this? Thank you.
