Swiss International Air Lines has warned that it may not achieve its stated aim of breaking even next year, and has instigated a cost- reduction programme and recruitment freeze. Talks are under way with Embraer to delay deliveries of some of the six 170 regional jets it is to receive next year. The airline has blamed that move on the delay in the 170 certification programme, which has forced Embraer to push back deliveries.
