Swiss has revealed that if its financial health improves during 2009, then it plans to launch new nonstop flights to Abu Dhabi, Beijing and San Francisco. AUH will see an A 332 and nonstop flights from ZRH where as PEK and SFO will see flights operated also nonstop but using an A 340-300.
I would suggest that LX seriously look at launching flights to IAH before PEK. IAH-ZRH can easily be flown with an A 332 nonstop and has a lot of potential due to it being a CO hub + LX serves all the major oil markets in Africa and the Middle East nonstop from ZRH.
