Question About The Embraer 170 At Swiss

Fri Mar 14, 2003 3:42 am

I have just three short questions:

Does anyone know when LX will receive its first Embraer 170 jet?
How many Embraer 170 has Swiss on order?
On which routes will this aircraft fly?

Thanks in advance!

Patrick, Swiss International is kicking several planes out of their fleet by the end of this month due to forced saving. 1st EMB-170 was planned for spring 2003 but now, it's indefinitely delayed. LX is also cutting jobs...

Thanks for your quick information, Unique! I hope that LX`s situation will become better, I can`t wait to fly finally on the EMB 170.

I think they are trying to delay the deliveries, because there are claims that the EMB 170 is too heavy and doesn't meet expectations.

That is the reason they are using officially anyway....truth is they don't need them right now and these difficulties with the EMB170 are a godsend. It allows LX to delay delivery without having to worry about paying a penalty.
