Hi
I am looking at going to zurich sometime in the next couple of months. Iirc Swiss Air was a member but now it is part of *A. I see i can get a flight from LON on BA.
Is this the normal way to Zurich - via LON or is there an alternative?
Thanks

Dunno about these days but in 1998 6YO mini serfty's luggage went on BA to DUB, LGW, ZRH; trouble was it was supposed to be offloaded at LGW.

It finally arrived at our London hotel with with gleaming ZRH tags 36 Hours later.

Giving that I do believe BA fly to ZRH from LON.

You can also go via HEL with AY, or go the other way (east) and go via LAX and DFW with AA

JAL might be on board with OW by the time you depart.
Their Route Map shows they fly to Zurich but I suspect it is via Paris, Amsterdam or Frankfurt. Not a bad option however.

I am about to do a flight to Nuremberg via Zurich in February.
It is a CX ticketed flight - Perth-HK (CX) HK-Zurich-Nuremberg (LX-Swiss) - and return.
The points go onto my QFF account.
It is a paper ticket - so nothing has appeared in my QFF Bookings file as would normally be the case with OW where the res systems talk to each other.

I am, however, going to triple check that all sectors are creditted to my QFF
- or quickly join *A.

An acquaintance got credited UAMP points for a SAA codeshare on QF metal from JNB-SYD, so it should all work out!

Thanks all
Looks like no quick way using OW which is more than likely what I'll have to fly. So if I have to go via LON then I may even do a DONE4.. I thin the cost will be similar

I checked the QF website and it seems that Swiss is neither a partner or member of OW..

Swiss is a member of *A (since LH purchased LX).

I booked my business class flight through a premium travel specialist - not online. They told me about the CX/LX combination - earning QF points. Suggest it would be worth speaking to a person rather than just online.

Would you happen to know if the HKG-ZRH sector is also under a CX flight number or a LX one? I remember when my travel agent booked me a similar flight the HKG-ZRH sector had a LX flight number, wich was irrelevant at the time, due to LX still having been a QF partner....

As I said, I would be 'triple checking' the situation. LX are now saying they are reviewing their codshare arrangements. Doesn't sound promising. I am pushing the point - my argument is that I booked the flight on the strength of it being a CX codeshare.
I will advise if I get a positive result.
