Not really worth going out of one's way, but enough to tip a trip Swiss' way everything else being equal?

I think the extremely generous Qualiflyer offers of the past year may have been necessary during the Swissair >Crossair >Swiss transition period, but cannot have made much sense for the bottom line.

I received the same promo just now. So BSL-BRN won't work this time. I probably won't go for the full 50k, but a handful of flights can make sense if they fit in with other travel.

Just in case anyone wants to do a mileage run for this: the cheapest international Swiss Business fare is available on the route FDH-BSL-FDH: 263€ return. Unfortunately only one flight in each direction per day.

I guess something like FDH-BSL-STU and back might be a better option, as one round trip would count for 4 flights ..
Anyway, does not smell like a good milage run chance (like the 240kmiles earlier this year).

I suppose you mean STR = Stuttgart.

Try to get FDH-BSL-STR rt ticketed, or even just a price quoted! Not a very practical proposal, I'm affraid.

No it is a targeted promotion.
To be part of it you have received an email or a letter like the one I posted above.

There is currently a special C-class offer ex-Rome to Zurich for EUR295 return. Look at swiss.com under Special Offers - Italy.

Good news but for people living in Switzerland they have to fly to Rome... So this is more complicated..
