View Full Version : Swiss Air Lines: Who's flying the airplanes - Crossair or Ex-Swissair Pilots?

6th Feb 2002, 02:27
Just saw a beautiful picture of a "Swiss Air Lines" A320 at Zurich - yeah, I like the paint scheme.

I am still confused about who is ACTUALLY flying the aircraft - Crossair or ex-Swissair pilots?

So, what's the deal? Who is actually flying and how do they determine who will fly future airplanes for them - will senior Crossair pilots get first dibs? Any updates on pilots and fleet plans (i.e, Embraer 170 - another cool airplane!)?

I plan to fly on Swiss Air Lines in May (already have a PAID reservation), and I'd like to know WHO is flying my aircraft (no preference, personally).

. .Cheers

For once Lavy, nice post and good question. But I have one question for you? Why don't you fly Delta Airlines to Zurich? I have heard they have great service and I know some of their pilots who seem to be well trained. They have atleast 1 flight a day from Atlanta----which is an easy connection from almost anywhere in the US. You can also fly Continental from Newark the Sewar-k.. .But, you already knew that, didn't you Lav?. .Thanks for supporting America.
