I was travelling by Business class from New Delhi to Barcelona with a flight change at Zurich (both legs with Swiss Air). Unlike whats done in India and most airports, no one was there from Swiss Air to take me to my connecting flight which was quite far away and with just a 30min gap or so. Also the security...

We travel with this airline from Singapore to Zurich. The service is very good, although less personal I feel than our flight with another airline a day or two earlier. But I really dislike the layout of the Boeing 777 on this flight. We are travelling Business Class, and the rows of three are arranged in a clunky 2 -...

Due to technical difficulties in Zurich our flight was delayed 2 hours leaving Shanghai. This didn't make sense really. So our flight into Zurich was then delayed 2 hours and we missed our connection into Madrid. We were then loaded onto a flight to Brussels and onto Madrid Arriving close to midnight. A long difficult trip, and we will avoid...

The flight over to Zürich was the worst flight I have ever taken because of the seats. The staff was very friendly and the food was good, but the CLOSE seats made it so miserable! I am a petite 5'4 and I felt like I was in a sardine can. My husband is 6ft and just SO uncomfortable. I sat...

If you want to choose a specific seat at the time you buy your ticket, you have to pay extra . My girlfriend and I wanted to make sure that we will seat together, so we payed the extra fee to keep two seats. A few days before the flight, they sent an email informing us that the seats had...

I was taken a back when I entered the aircraft. The seats labelled as business class was just plain economy seats except that they were 3 front row seats . A curtain was a partition between economy and business class . The service was however good and were looked after . The flight was short one and a half hour...

I recently flew from Zurich to Vienna in Business class on Swiss. There are three observations I have to make about Swiss: 1. Service: The service is mechanical. There are no proactive drink refills (or any proactive service for that matter). There is a meal which was awful, and then the two business class flight attendants just kind of hid...

This is a quick flight, mid-day, on Swiss Air that was on an MD-80 with a 2-3 seat configuration. All the seats had about 6" inches more space in front and were more like business class. The cabin had time during the hour flight for beverages and a quick meal that consisted of three small dishes. Overall a great, brief...

The travel with Swiss International Airlines is always a very positive experience. In time, good and friendly service, modern and clean air crafts. You know that when you choose to fly with Swiss you will not get disapointed.

Flight leg to Zurich to Madrid arrived late in Zurich and caused me to miss flight to Madrid. They arranged for a later flight to Madrid but I had to do some major juggling of housing arrangements. The later flight to Madrid was noisy and uncomfortable. Not happy with this.
