Swiss Already In Star Alliance (in HAM)

Thu May 26, 2005 3:42 am

Today in Hamburg opened a new Terminal. As I understood now all Star Alliance flights are in the old Terminal (now Terminal 2).
Now I have seen on the page of the airport that Swiss arrived also in this Terminal.
Does this mean that Swiss is definitely in Star Alliance?

Thanks for your thoughts
Felix

No Swiss is not yet, but it is Lufthansa's goal to bring LX into the alliance as fast as possible. They also want to coordinate the Swiss schedule with LH already as early as December 05. For this I think it is only logic to put Swiss into a new Star terminal.

...it just means that Swiss is in Terminal 2 in HAM.

I'm sure Lufthansa holds a lot of sway at HAM. I think that even if they planned on keeping LX out of Star it would still be in the new Star Alliance terminal given their desire to co-ordinate their schedules.

Any idea if/when LX will move to Amadeus/Lufthansa Systems for RES/DCS ? Nobody seems to know  Smile

I actually don't know, but I think I should be latest then when LH integrates completely the LX flights into their own schedule.

If/when they [Swiss] are part of the Lufthansa Group, then they are/will be part of Star Alliance. I don't think they are part of the group as of now though.

It was within hours of happening in 2001 when Lufty Systems and Atraxis were about to merge.

Stranger things have happened in this mad business is all I can say.

Yes, but who was merging with whom ? I thought LSY was buying Atraxis, rather than the other way round - no way LH were moving onto Atraxis, even then.
