Swissair: “Good Bye”

From #lisp:

rydis: Just in from lispm-hackers: Swiss Air, the company that's been buying pretty much all TI Explorers, and are still running a lot of planning software on 'em, has stopped flying, according to fuckedcompany.com.

However, the old IT arm of Swiss Air was purchased by EDS, so the Lisp code and all those TI's were saved from the scrap heap.

Yes, and the fuckedcompany postinging got it wrong.

Swissair stopped flying on 31 March 2002. EDS
took over Atraxis, the IT bit of Swiss air
sometime in December 2001.
