Swiss - For How Long?

Fri Jun 11, 2004 11:00 pm

What do you think? How long will SWISS exist?

- I say 12/04 (month/year)

And was is the reason?

- They will be taken over by Lufthansa....

I think the next annual report will be telling. Swiss has demonstrated one thing: the ability to produce a decent load factor.

The loadfactors might be good, but how are yields? that's a more important question

I am always wondering why Swiss newspapers are printing the load factor figures but nobody is asking for the yield.

If all tickets are for free you will have a load factor of 100% I guess.

I guess they have the same problem as Scandinavian Airlines. Their loads are getting better but the yield is getting lower. That is not the way to make money.
I hope Swiss will exist for a while. But if their yield is low i really doubt it.  Sad
