Can somebody who has already been a pilot or a pax on a regular flight from BSL to ZRH tell me at what altitude they fly? It seems a very very short flight, so I just wondered. Guess they don't even switch off the seatbelt sign or serve drinks, or do they?

Just flown on that route two weeks ago, both flights were almost full. It was a wonderful flight, one of the only flights who gets the clearance to overfly the city of Basel directly (usually planes need to do a right turn after take-off to avoid noise). Anyway, I had a great view of "my" city and my region with the Black Forrest hills and the raising sun in the background.
Flight time was usually 15 minutes, now it is 25 minutes due to the very often southern approach into ZRH. That means a nice routing along the Zurich lake on the right side until almost lake Walensee then a sharp turn and direct approach over the city of ZRH.
