The demise of airline Swissair in 2001 was a huge blow to Switzerland's economy and to the country's morale. It was a sad day for Swiss history when the airline's fleet was grounded on 2 October 2001. "Grounding" is set during the last days of the doomed airline, and tells the story of manager Mario A. Corti's unhappy fate, the last, unlucky CEO at the traditional airline company, as well as of all those nameless people who lost almost everything in the maelstrom of Swissair's downfall: their job, home and their belief in Switzerland.

I can not believe this film has been released with no English or English subtitles! I have been waiting for this film for over 6 months. I ordered the DVD some 5 months ago and at last I received it today However a note saying no English subtitles! Very disappointed hope they Change their mind. Such a long time to wait for this movie. This would assist others around the world understand what went on now for those of us like me who do not speak Swiss Italian German or read these languages I will never know what went on! It looks like Lufthansa is now going to be the global European airlines. Roomers are SAS is next. Not that is such a bad thing however the airline world is getting smaller and smaller (I was a former Ansett Australia pilot) need I say more as I do understand what it is like for an Airline of 60+ years to no longer exist
