Re: Swiss Aviation Thread - 2020

Well, it makes sense to park them in AMM due to the local climate and the fact that LX does their heavy MX in AMM. They will probably return when demand is requiring the frames to come back to ZRH.

Re: ANISEC - Level Europe in Administration

I feel sorry for the people working there, but they really had no added value to the markets. So they will be forgotten very soon. The whole construction was bound to fail anyway, and then came CoVid-19.... But again, for the people who work hard it is really sad, hope they find new jobs fairly soon...

Re: LH Group fleet groundings, Germanwings closure

I could see D-AEUD being transferred to WK, they have some older 320's in the fleet wiht two frames in the below MSN1000 range. Engine type is ok, and they have more 2nd hand frames. LH/OS/SN don't need them and LX is usually only taking new frames with plenty of NEO's on order.
