Today is a sad day for Swiss aviation history: The first SWISS A340-313 with the registration HB-JMO finished its last commercial flight this morning and will be given back to the leasing agency. It’s last flight route was LX179 from Singapore, landing in Zurich at 06:11 on runway 34.
Mike Oscar will be greatly missed!
I Would miss this Beauty :(
So sad… I was just thinking of Swiss A340-300’s today.
There would be many tears on that flight.
But as HB-JMO is leaving another plane rises out of the ashes like a phoenix: HB-IOO, the first SWISS A321 with Sharklets just arrived from Berlin, where it got its cabin fitted, a couple of minutes ago and will commence its commercial service tomorrow as LX1830 to Athen.
But how? I set up an alarm to see it land in ZRH :(
Edit: I picked up a signal from SXF about 30min ago. That was indeed -IOO. This means the ferry flight has yet to happen.
Shame, I have always liked the 340’s in the swiss livery. I hate it when 340’s get retired I really like them in the CX livery and in fact all of them
Though of A340s, its sad that they are retiring :(
Your Flickr has some nice pics of this and other flights!
Let us take a moment of silence
