Re: Switzerland to follow suit with Eco-Tax

Re: SWISS Announces Zurich To Washington D.C. and Osaka

Will these new flights fully tap out their long-haul fleet? It seems pretty impressive how they're able to manage such a large long-haul network with a relatively small fleet. It's curious why their South American network is so small. LX combined with Edelweiss Air currently offers a small, but com...

Re: SWISS Announces Zurich To Washington D.C. and Osaka

The timing of the IAD flight is really not that good for any inbound or outbound connections from UA. So I suppose LX mainly targets local DC O&D market. I also wonder if UA will slightly adjust the timing of its ZRH flight (eg move it forward by 1 hour) to better spread out the two flights.
