Swissair LX5200

Why is Swissair LX5200 flying all over northern Germany at FL150?

Might be out on an air test. Doesn't to have flown for the last three weeks, so presumably undergoing maintenance.

If they were still flying, it would be a big plus.

Except that Swiss is what was Crossair - not Swissair.

On the legal side, yes, but on the operational and commercial sides, Swiss is what Swissair was.

And, since no one has mentioned it, today's version (of Crossair) is called Swiss International Airlines.
