Indeed, thanks for the correction.

As mentioned by Kottok, next non-European flight to be announced in the coming months is likely IKA-GVA with Qeshm Air (subject to gov. approvals).

GVA is hopeful to announce another intercontinental service ahead of the opening of the new long-haul terminal in Q4 2020, discussions with the airline is well advanced. I personally believe that it will be CX but let's see ;)


I always thought SIN would be the next long haul destination

I read somewhere that LX wants to add YYZ by next year to their route network, was wondering if 2x daily ZRH-YYZ would work, one being AC and the other being LX.

YYZ is an interesting one; I thought they were thinking about ICN or IAD since two new 77W will join the fleet soon.
AC 878/879 YYZ-ZRH-YYZ switched from 333 to 789 (with 298 seats) and now to 77W (400-450 seats capacity) for the summer.
I still believe Seoul or Washington will be next, but you never know.

The 2 new frames will give space to expand for LX. 1 new TATL & 1 Asian destination are more or less confirmed. I expect the new destinations to be opened with A330/A340 and upgauging of current A330/340 routes to 77W.
Personally I see ZRH-NRT to become 77W and that A340-slack being used for opening the new Asian route. I heard rumours not only about ICN but also another one. TATL I also heard YYZ or IAD which are both already served by *Alliance partners ex ZRH.

Great to see LX finally expanding on longhaul again.
My bets are on ICN in Asia and IAD for TATL. 77W moving to NRT and 340 opening up ICN/IAD.
More interesting will be the time schedule for these new destinations. Are there even any slots available for the noon wave?

I guess we can expect a final decision this summer.

Its just sad that the 77W in Y with the 3-4-3 is horrible to fly. And I heard rumors LX is also not so happy with them as they have sometimes problems to actually fill it.

NRT is surely a good bet for 77W upgauge, but I wouldn't be surprised if they announce one of the two Chinese cities (PVG or PEK).
I believe TATL-wise, the almost double-daily BOS flights as well as EWR, MIA and YUL doing fine and don't require an immediate upgauge from 333/343 to 77W.
The same can be said about DXB-MCT, NBO-DAR and the two Indian cities BOM and DEL. In my opinion the only other possibilities are JFK and JNB.

If LX launches ICN, what will it mean for KE? I don't think they are doing that well in winter since they operate a triangular flight via ZAG.

except for NBO/DAR, all longhaul flights are generally operated at least daily. it would be safe to assume that they initiate a new route like ICN also on daily basis. therefore, it will be a tough game for KE with their 3x weekly service.

ZRH-ICN is 200 miles shorter than ZRH-PEK/PVG. both flights leave ZRH in the afternoon wave around 1pm with an early morning arrival at the respective destination.
KE's nonstop ZRH-ICN leaves in the evening. I believe, one of them will go 77W whereas the freed up 333/343 opens ICN.

Is Swiss expected to add new seasonal destinations in S20 out of GVA (like this year with ALC, IBZ, BDS or JMK)?

I noticed with the upcoming new LX GVA-ALC, SCQ is by far the busiest destination in Spain out of GVA (98,000 PAX in 2018 and 2019 will certainly be over 100k) where Swiss does not fly to and where easyJet faces no competition.

I think it's quite possible they will add an additional plane next summer, or possibly MUC/FRA might transfer back to LH.

If I had to bet on new summer destinations from GVA based on what was done this summer I'd expect to see KEF, SPU, JTR or possibly FSC. Somewhat of a possibly BEY or TUN (both of which go out very full on ME/TU and lack competition). And if they go for unserved routes AYT, IZM, CHQ or RHO.
For winter seasonal routes I'm a bit surprised LX hasn't tried a destination in the Canary Islands yet or tried something like Cabo Verde.

Yes, LX2552, ZRH-SCQ on a mix of CS3/320 but it is not daily. Also VY is operating ZRH-SCQ.
From GVA & BSL it's EasyJet only.

Yes, but most VFR is around Geneva/Lausanne. Hence why easyJet out of GVA has more passengers than BSL (U2) + ZRH (VY/LX) combined.

On the other hand whenever I have flown those routes, it seemed than BSL/ZRH were far more diverse (German/Swiss tourists/pilgrims/hikers) than GVA (overwhelming VFR). Swiss at ZRH also compliments Lufthansa's SCQ-FRA in terms of connections, although LH seems to always prioritise connections over FRA.

SWISS is down one B77W since begining of this month, it's most unreliable one in the fleet (HB-JND), this is the aircraft that had to make an emergency landing in IQUALIT in 2018 due to a engine shutdown, since then this aircraft continued to suffer issues here and there... On top of it there is one A340 down as well currently in JNB (HB-JMI) that also suffered some technical issue + HB-JMC that is currently in DRS for the cabin overhaul

Not a fan of these Boeings, let's hope one day the SWISS long haul fleet will consist again of only Airbuses with the A350-900 and A350-1000

Interesting that they're having such problems with that specific one. The 77W is probably the most reliable widebody for Boeing I would have thought.

I too hope that the future Swiss fleet will consist of the a350 and the a330neo as well. I'm not a fan of all these 3 seats on the window.

Yeah A350 would be stunning with the LX livery but I'm not that much optimistic for that. Maybe in the distant future!
The 787 could also be a great aircraft for Lx.
We will see!

The impact is large, multiple flight cancellations and reschedulings. I can't comment ( not sure if allowed, so better not ) on the technical aspect, but I'm sure SR Technics do their utmost to get her back in the fleet saspo.

Hey guys,

With the Paris Air Show kicking in, we have already seen MEA and Cebu ordering the A321XLR. Could such an aircraft sign the return of Swiss long haul flight from GVA?

I doubt that GVA will ever see LX long-haul again. It eats up the market of ZRH. However, I‘ve always seen the A321LR and now the XLR as an interesting option for LX. The A321XLR could replace A330 on NBO/DAR and DXB/MCT. TLV is also quite a distance, however I don‘t know if the A321ceo has a payload restriction now.

I don't think LX has payload restrictions to TLV on the A321 since LCA gets many of them from the UK or the Nordics. I think the flight is less than four hours (ZRH-TLV).

You say that (and that was my initial reaction). But ZRH is becoming congested, especially at peak times. I don't think it's too much to think that in five years or so there's enough demand for a few TATL flights again.

Don't forget LX is also transporting substantial amounts of cargo on those flights which contributes to the profitability of the company. I doubt that those destinations would be interesting enough to downgrade to A321(X)LR. If such an order would come then I see LX (re)opening other destinations first.

btw. HB-JND (LX/77W) seems to be grounded still. really curious to know what is wrong. DALCE, really no chance to give us a clue? :)

Nice to see WK operating their widebodies on shorter segments.
ATH on the 77W is the same as last year, but a strong sign for business into/from Greece!

Sorry, I'm not going to take risks regarding that. Normally -JND should be back online towards the weekend / during the weekend.

If it rains, it pours.....HB-JHH has suffered a bird strike upon landing as LX19 ex JFK and as a result LX52 to BOS today is cancelled.

They found corrosion in the wastewater tank that was apparently caused by a seal that was not completely tight. The repair is supposed to be finished soon and the aircraft should be back in service this week. Source: https://www.aerotelegraph.com/swiss-hat ... boeing-777 (in German)

Thanks for the source! It indeed sounds pretty bad. Would this be a topic for Boeing as well?

Nevertheless, JMB headed to AMM today.

The first of the last 2 remaining CS100's for LX has started flight testing. Frame 50018 / HB-JBI is the frame involved.
Expect delivery this month.

Frame 50019 / HB-JBJ has not flown yet


Last I heard, they were both scheduled for delivery in the second quarter of 2019. Will the 10th aircraft be delayed again?
