Swiss (Airlines) spam

Not only is the title patronising and stupid, but the fares are nothing special either

Men only! Fly with SWISS to London

Dear Castro

Is this the year for your long-intended “boys’ trip” but you can quite decide on a destination? Then we have the solution. Fly with SWISS to London!

Regardless of whether you’re keen to visit a museum, yet at the same time can’t imagine being in London without going on a shopping spree, or absolutely long to attend a Champions League match – London offers you the full range of possibilities.

Following an eventful day, start your evening off with a visit to The Collection.
Round out your evening with a late-night stop at the Purl Bar, which is located in a vaulted basement that gives it the look and feel of a New York speakeasy.

From Zurich in SWISS Economy:
London Heathrow from CHF 199.–

Re: Swiss (Airlines) spam

I got one for 'ladies only' to go shopping in London, at least they got their sexes right I guess. but yes, agree the fare is nothing special and why should only girls want to go shopping? or only guys to museums? weird interpretations of the Swiss marketing people

Not the first slightly sexist airline advertising.



Prices ok though!

It's an outrage, who would want to go to London to visit a museum!

You're Swiss, you tell us. Do Swiss stag weekends usually involved museum visits, wine tasting, pheasant shooting and other genteel pursuits?

But that is just the "from" prices. Wait, till you add the luggage, credit card fee, processing fee, breathing fee, sitting fee, toilet fee! That could easily go in the 1000's

It makes a pleasant break from Olten I guess, where the only entertainment on offer involves either a strip joint or a hooker.

I've always enjoyed the chess games with the hooker next door.

Re: Swiss (Airlines) spam

Had an email from them a couple of weeks ago to buy something special for the special lady in my life. Send an email asking why the *** do they think that all Senators are only men?
So at least good to see they finally got it sorted out whom to send specific emails to

What's wrong with strip joints and hookers?
