Re: United to expand premium 767s to Switzerland

I could see LX dropping GVA from JFK (currently in a W pattern ZRH-JFK-GVA-JFK-ZRH)...which could allow LH to squeeze TXL into that slot at T4 or T7 at JFK on Eurowings (they had discontinued TXL because an appropriate slot could not be gotten). Unlikely since the GVA-JFK is the most profitable fli...
