Repaired Swiss Boeing 777 heading back to Zurich


Live on! The Swiss Boeing 777 has received a new GE90 engine and is now flying back to Zurich airport as LX5177, HB-JND is expected to land at 08:20 am after a 5h50mins flight.

Last week the SWISS Boeing 777 made an unexpected stop at Iqaluit, Canada after an engine failure. To bring a new engine (GE90) to Iqaluit, an Antonov was chartered.
