As for a direct BSL-EWR flight. Demand is there but Novartis and the other big companies in BSL at the same time are demanding big discounts so a direct flight is wishful thinking as long as the big companies have a somehow ridiculous idea of how much they should pay for a biz flight across the atlantic...

Maybe the aircraft had been chartered by Novartis, or simply carrying a number of Novartis guests. Land Rover and Jaguar have previously had logos on aircraft in a non advertising manner.

That is not correct. LX had made made a rather attractive offer to the local enterprises of the trirhena area. All SWISS would have needed would have been a commitment for a minimum of eight seat per flight to launch the service offering a corporate deal. The price was never a real issue. Planning for the flight was actually already far advanced. Once SWISS failed to obtain a commitment for eight seats though, the issue was dropped. Contrary to what some people seem to believe, there simply is not enough demand to sustain a service between BSL and the New York area.
