RE: Will Swiss (LX) Ever Become Swissair?

I still refer to it as Swissair, it so close to the Swiss name anyway. Just as I love to ask the <acronym title="United Airlines (USA)">UA</acronym> checkin agents where the Red Carpet Club is located  <img src="http://cdn-www.airliners.net/aviation-forums/graphics/smilies/wink.gif" width="15" ...

UA will begin to refurbish the 747's Y class cabin in the near future, to include AVOD. I think these plane will be around at least 4 to 5 more years.
