In Travel Inside it said that SAA plans to increase JNB to ZRH to 5 times a week in the near future. For what it's worth...

I did hear that SQ would send the 77W to ZRH replacing the 744. Not sure when this will happen.

What about Air Berlin? I see no more flights to FCO, FRA and HAJ. According to customer service all flights are released for sale. Not sure if customer service is right on this one. Would be surprised...

Cracow could be served by a LCC also from BSL, for Graz I can't see another direct link: LX had a lot of transit pax on those route... you would need a network to operate them!

But who knows... maybe Helvetic will fly a 3 daily with their unused Fokker 100!  Big grin

Well there's always Air Rostrum, or what their supposed name will be to fill the gap left behind by the demise of Styrian Spirit!

Any chance of Cirrus operating the Graz route on behalf on LX ? Their arrangement seems to be working reasonably well on the LUG and STR routes.

Apparently Air Berlin will start weekly flights between Zurich and Lanzarote, Las Palmas, Tenerife, Fuerteventura and Madeira.
There seems to be a solution for Cracow too but I am not in the position to tell more about this right now.

I know Air Rostrum is in talks with LX for a codeshare on the routes. It all depends from LX, if they accept then the service will be restablished... again with a CRJ200  Yeah sure May be confortable... but way to expensive...

The only route operating on behalf of Swiss is the LUG one, with Darwin Airline. Cirrus has codeshare agreements with LX.

Actually STR and NUE are operated by Cirrus for LX in a wet-lease agreement. DRS is Cirrus with LX-codeshare.

I wasn't even aware that they changed from LGW to LTN  Smile When they first opened the route, me and a friend of mine flew that route for less than 100 CHF. It was a relatively comfortable flight.

I guess any possible BSL-Krakow route on EZY would come as part of a larger expansion by EZY @ BSL?

Zurich-Frankfurt by Air Berlin is back for sale but I can only find one weekly flight (it was 4x daily so far...). ZRH- Rome still not bookable.

Someone I know flew the route to/from FRA a couple of days ago. Only about 30 pax per way...

Anyone knows what is going on?

Well, LX will be receiving two A. 330s, but that won't be til the winter timetable. They will be used to increase frequencies to existing destinations, so no new routes.

Yes it is confirmed. More info here:

http://www.baz.ch/news/index.cfm?Obj...5BAC3C1-1422-0CEF-70BA75CCA0E5498B

Two A-330, ex-Lufthansa, one to replace the A-300, one new.

They're two ex-Swissair or ex-Sabena which have been flying for LH. The first one will arrive in November to replace the African Queen. The second aircraft is due in December and will serve to increase frequencies. For the winter schedule this means:

SAO/SCL will go from 5 to six flights a week,
Both JFK flights and Miami will go daily again,
Riad and Jeddah will add a frequency and so will Nairobi/Dar Es Salam.
