Hello all,

tomorrow May 04 I have a flight from PRG to BSL on Swiss and returning on May 06, 2007 from BSL to PRG. I will be on Avro-Jet with Swiss. So what can i expect in terms of service and seating. My flight cost me 72 Euros all in for the round trip and even yesterday they flight for today's date was around this price. This gives me feeling that it will be very light flight with many free seats. What are the best seats in Y on this a/c?

Thanks for any responses.  cheerful 


Next Flight: Oct 10: PRG-MUC-KIV EMB 195/CRJ 900, Oct 12: KIV-MUC-PRG CRJ900/EMB 195 wiht Lufthansa

I'd recomend you to get Seats A or B as the plane is configured 2 -3 and those are the seats with 2 per row. If you are lucky you will fly with a plane that was reconfigured with the Reccaro sears that are also featured in the Airbus planes, they are confortable and you have good leg space. You can choose from various drinks including hot ones and you'll get a sandwich / mufin / or some salty snack depending on the time of day you fly. Incase you still get the cheapest fare today it could be possible that the load will be low. However I don't know what the policies out of BSL are maybe they are selling most of the plane with their low fares inorder to survive agaisnt easy jet etc but I don't know.

It is a nice ride on the Avro. I think it is one of the rare airplanes where the back is just as nice, if not nicer, than the front of the airplane. Sit in the 2-seat rows and get a window seat.

The flaps make a lot of noise on retraction and extension, so be aware of this!

I love Avros. My only experience, though, was on an SN Avro RJ85 from LHR to BRU, and the flight was fantastic, in part because of the 2-3 cabin configuration. As others have pointed, LX also has 2-3 cabins, so that is a plus. Hopefully you will be able to take a couple of pics of the plane and share them with us... perhaps even a trip report?


Next flights: MEX-GRU (AM 77E), GRU-GIG (JJ A320), SDU-CGH (G3 73H), GRU-MEX (JJ A332).

LX is great. LX's Avros are great, as they are 5-abreast only. The wings above you give a weird feeling when you're seating right behind them! Avros as a whole are great, because they have such an unusual design and configuration! Such a change from the 2-wing-mounted-engine boredom for us plane enthusiasts!
I'm not familiar with LX service on intra-European flights as I only flew the exception ZRH-GVA, so short that they can't even serve beverages! But overflying Switzerland as low as 15,000 ft on a sunny day is priceless. I would have skipped my drink as i was glued to the window the whole flight!
The return flight on the big A321 was more tasteless in comparison. Too big cabin for such a low fly-by and short segment, looked odd!



When I doubt... go running!

Thank you guys for comments.

I have checked online and I have tried to get a seat on the back but they were already occupied. I got 3A. This seat must be right after Business Class.

I expect to take few shots and will post a short trip report upon return. My flight tomorrow is at 17:15. Last time I flew Swiss was last october and my routing was as follows: PRG-ZRH-GVA-BCN and AMS-ZRH-PRG.

PRG-ZRH on Avro (got an Movenpick ice cream box)
ZRH-GVA-BCN on A321
AMS-ZRH on Avro (special mountain meddow c/s)
ZRH-PRG on Avro (Star alliance c/s)

I heard that all the flights between PRG and ZRH are now operated for Swiss by Cirrus Airlines' B737.

I like Swiss a lot. When it was still old SR, I flew with them only once and that was one way PRG-ZRH on Airbus 320 and I have enjoyed that flight a lot. Full hot breakfast on the morning flight.



Next Flight: Oct 10: PRG-MUC-KIV EMB 195/CRJ 900, Oct 12: KIV-MUC-PRG CRJ900/EMB 195 wiht Lufthansa
