Austrian and SWISS in Seattle

Mon Jun 29, 2020 10:02 pm

According to Wikipedia, both Austrian and SWISS flew to Seattle, but it doesn't say when, and I wasn't able to find any information on Google. Did they actually fly to Seattle? If so, when? And what equipment did they use? Does anyone know what the schedule was?

Dont trust Wikipedia.

Swissair/Swiss only have had LAX and SFO on West Coast, and OS and previous Lauda only serviced LAX.

Do you have a link? As stated above, neither have ever offered scheduled service to SEA and almost certainly never will, but I'd be curious to see where that came from...

If it was there (a scan of the Sea-Tac wikipedia article at the moment finds a reference to neither) it was placed by a doofus who didn't know, or as deliberate misinformation. That's how wikipedia is 'sourced.'

The link is here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_A ... stinations

I definitely think some douchebag is spreading misinformation, as it also lists Anchorage, Honolulu, and Phoenix as terminated destinations, among other places.

The SWISS article, however, seems a bit more legit: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_S ... stinations

Swiss (LX) has never served SEA. It's US West Coast markets have been LAX and recently, SFO was added. ZRH-LAX was a legacy Swissair (SR) route and ZRH-SFO was added by LX very recently. OS has never served any US West Coast destination other than LAX.

Thanks for posting. This might be the work of a novice who saw a codeshare flight in an old timetable and promptly took to Wikipedia. Av-geek articles get a lot of traffic (SEA is the second suggested page if you search "Seattle," wouldn't surprise me if that's true elsewhere) and a lot of edits...some are woefully inaccurate. Always check the source citations!

I've worked at SEA for 40 years...absolutely not true. Neither have ever flown to SEA except one-way to pick up a new plane at the Boeing Delivery Center.

I remember a day back in the early '80's when I saw a DC-10 in Swissair livery depart from SEA. Obviously, this was pre-Internet, so I never figured out what the story was for this plane.

OS did serve ATL for a short time as part of their alliance with DL before OS went Star-board .. so to speak. First it was on DL metal then on OS’ A340s.. must have been somewhere between 1998 and 2000

Yes, there are photos in the database of OS at ATL. Equipment was A340-200 usually.

You can see SR's routemap on their website, in the webarchive.

They added SFO 10 years ago... Hardly "very" recently... Quickly grew to nearly double daily in the summer before UA added on their own metal. Swissair also served SFO.

My head was in the clouds. You are correct. I was thinking of the UA seasonal service between SFO and ZRH which was added much more recently.
