A Swiss consumer group is urging the government to publish the names of airlines banned because of safety concerns. The Federal Office for Civil Aviation (FOCA) said it would reveal more information if it were not tied to a European (ECAC) aviation agreement. The call follows revelations that the Flash Airines B737 that crashed was one of 24 aircraft banned from Swiss airspace. (NZZ)
