ZRH- DXB was the first scheduled Swiss A340 flight I think, and still DXB/KHI/MCT are the only destinations that see the A340 regularly (occasionally they use the A340 for flights to LOS/ACC).

Yesterday afternoon the a340 flew to DEL (Dehli).
I was invited to board Swiss' new a340 yesterday as well. I must say, at first i did not like the design and colors of the new seating from the photos i saw online, but after seeing them in person the seats seem very warm and comfortable. You guys should see the camera under the nose of the aircraft, its pretty cool!
