All flights to London sold out this week (01-07 June)

Suddenly there is no availability for ZRH-LHR this week - all flights are completely sold out. Assume it has something to do with the impending quarantine starting June 8th?

Why do Swiss not add extra flights in this case?

I was wondering the same a couple of days ago when I checked availability.

According to EF there is an A330 operating on Thursday and it has seats available.

It's probably not sold out, but zeroed out. Could be to offer all the people with tickets for next week an opportunity to change to this week.
Adding extra flights is not that simple I expect, even in this time when capacity is not an issue.

They are actually full and sold out.

Remember we're down from about 50 daily flights to London from ZRH/GVA/BSL to less than 2 per day. That doesn't include the other airports in the UK that have no service right now.

Can it be that difficult to add extra flights?

It's not like they're short of planes or anything

not that easy to restart all those planes in storage and this is temporary demand due to quarantine being imposed
