RG MD-11 At ZRH?

Wed Jan 26, 2005 7:29 am

Any idea what PP-VTH is doing in ZRH? AFAIK Swiss is the ony airline flying between Brazil-Switzerland nowadays and RG code-shares with LH to ZRH.

Isn't PP-VTH an ex-LX MD-11? Maybe could be connected to this...just guessing.

This bird, which has Star colours, has been rotating around many destinations such as MEX, AMS, CDG, LIS, FRA, JFK, SCL, MAD, etc...

As you said, LX is the only airline serving ZRH-GRU with the A340 5 x week.

The plane had maintenance issues in CDG and had to be flown into ZRH for an engine change.
