Can anyone tell me if Swiss' A330s will ever get the new lie-flat business class seats that have been installed in the A340 for the past hree years? It seems to be taking them forever.

Apparently the decision will be taken in November. SWISS had already more or less decided on a seat but when they tested it on their top customers, the most prominent reaction was that sitting in the new seat felt more like lying in a coffin. If no alternative is found by November, the same seats will be installed which are currently used on the A. 340 fleet.

While we're on the subject of interior mods, will the 332 ever get the same OD IFE as the 343's have? Because I honestly think that since the 332 came into Swissair's fleet many years ago, nothing in the IFE has changed except the movies. Same games, same map, same everything.

And, I hate not being able to start my movie when I want and not being able to fast forward or rewind or pause.

I flew a LX A332 on ZRH-NAI-DAR return recently and everything were fine except for the seats (and IFE). Nice food and great service sitting on 1A but since im 6.3' i had problems enjoying my flight in those old-school seats.

AS far as I know, the IFE is part of the revamp. However, nothing is bound to happen until the two additional aircraft arrive. LX is a few planes short as it is.
