Re: SwissAirg ZRH<->GOT disappeared

Probably got suspended by the pandemic like lots of other Swiss flights.

Fyi, here Geneva Airport is more a parking lot for Swiss and Easyjet these days with more of these planes permanently on the tarmac than in the air.

Most flights are cancelled right now due to Covid - obviously.

Re: SwissAirg ZRH<->GOT disappeared

I booked a direct flight to Manchester for August last year with Swiss (and using an adjective as a noun confuses us English speakers).

It didn‘t exactly disappear, it just got rerouted - from a 1½ hour flight to assorted alternatives including 12 hours via Dubai.

I cancelled and now have a voucher, but 12 hours and a trip to the Middle East for CHF140 seems somehow attractive now...

Swiss did announce they were drastically cutting back/suspending flights at the time of this latest winter partial shutdown.

Little characters in TCs and contracts? Life's too short and I'm too important for that sir!

I saw it. It would be nice for them to be little more precise

Most trips look attractive compared to one to Manchester!

In the context of this thread, perhaps "challenge over vague ideas of departures"?
yeah, yeah. instead of spending just 2 hour on the plane, spent 3 times more in planes and airports. smart, yes

I'm pretty sure that SwissAir is still the national airline of the country Swiss, a place where expats live.

If you can have a day or two in Dubai included then it is probably an economic option?

How much is the Covid vaccine in Dubai? how many shots can you bring back in your handbaggage?
