So they'll open a new airport in Kanton Schwyz? ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canton_of_Schwyz )

Schwyz (Canton) =/ Schweiz (State)

Apparently, either Blick is writting BS, or it's indeed something "big".. hmmm.. they'll double the CC "optional" fee maybe?

OK, then Canton Air!

Or better still: since bmi has a FFP, Swiss now can reopen STC as they are safely back in the black.

A bit more serious.. they'll finally get some decent aircraft for their fleet? Like they're going to order some A350s.. (A380 too big..) - or maybe they'll pre-order some A320-neos? Can't see them switching to Boeing..

Aircraft orders are usually announced by LH (with detail on which happy LH Group subsidiary will get the aircraft). Such announcements usually don't require all managers to come to HQ either.

Reinstalling a self administered STC program and the Swiss(air) Circle Club would indeed be GREAT news or maybe they will go back to SWISSAIR ^^ with SR instead of LX of the dreadful and unsafe Crossair

An aircraft announcement is possible - even though they are traditionally handelled by LHGroup - if there is a real PR potential, I can imagine LX agreeing with LH to avoid this rule.

Twitter is currently going crazy though about rebranding rumours to swissair
