Surprised to see that Skypointer's unprofessional name naming hasn't been jumped upon by the moderators - that's the kind of thing that gets Danny into trouble.

Wondering why the thread has been moved to ground ops...

Maybe they figure another grounding is coming...Has been dealt with. Thanks. Hogg

Hello Sineados !
It seems that Swiss have 6 A320's, 13 A340's (CFM56-5C/P engine testing at the moment), 30 ERJ170, 30 ERJ195 all on order at the moment. Surely this will save at least 140 positions.
Well....the outstanding aircraft orders is one more example of the big mess that Swiss is in. The Embraer 170-195´s were ordered by Crossair before the collapse of the SAir Group. Crossair was planning on taking over more and more Swissair routes at lower operating costs and those 60 Embraers (don´t forget the other 60 options ! ) fitted nicely into this plan. The Embraers 170-195 are supposed to replace the Saab 2000´s and the AVRO´s, while the A320´s will replace the MD80´s and the A340-300´s will replace the MD11´s. A lot of people in the company are wondering how on earth we are ever going to pay for all these aircraft.

Aussies/Kiwis

Understand that a number of those being "deported" are from our part of the world.

Guess mostly MD-81 currency but of any have or have had 737 endorsement plus some hours on type, send me a private email. Might be able to help.

Thumbs down

Yes, very sad to see these Kiwi´s and Aussies go. Many are very professional pilots with a worldy view to CRM and procedures as opposed to Crossair´s dark age CRM culture.

I was wondering why all threads which do not revolve around British/UK based airlines get (re) moved so quickly ??

Sure, the discussion above always seems the same (Crossair vs Swissair) but the same is true for many other threads under "reporting points."
