I think I have a new favorite airline

Jump to last reply

On Wednesday, I flew from Zurich to Miami with Swiss International Airlines. My miles posted two days later with Continental and I just made Gold!

Swiss used a new Airbus A330-300 with staggered seating in Business Class. I was able to sleep on my side, back and front on a complete lie-flat bed. The food was excellent; I had the corn fed chicken. The fasten seat-belt sign was turned off five minutes after take-off and there were no annoncements during the flight except during the first and last hour. Check out how the seating in business is done:

A complete menu was given out in Business Class but when they served the food, I was able to see the options before making my final choice. The video on demand worked great with a large screen television in business. There were a lot of kids in Business Class--don't parents know about tough Love? The wine glass could have been a little bigger, but with such great service, I managed.
