All A343's in the LX fleet were delivered with the same seating, so yes. Even the 2nd hand planes from AC / OS also get this product. Once the A333's all classes will receive a new seating and probably this will also be installed to all A343's

DHL has, in addition to the night service to/from Brussels, launched an early evening departure from Basel to East Midlands. The flight is operated with a Bae ATP of Atlantic Airways. It is part of the US next day delivery concept and focussed on time sensible goods from the large Swiss agglomerations. Customers can give their freight until 15:45 (in Basel) or 12:45 (in Geneva). The freight then goes to East Midlands, will change aircraft to Wilmington and reaches the US on next day already as well as the large agglomeration in Canada and Mexiko.

just heard in the news that Pakistan President Musharraf is attending the WEF in Davos this weekend. So I guess he arrives via ZRH - any idea on what plan he arrives? Please make sure to take a shot of the PIA 777 or 310, whatever comes

Latest news from ZRH: they expect about 900 additional movements during the WEF (January 23-27). There are 60 stands available for the WEF aircrafts at the airport. Therefore the boarding/deboarding time for some private aircrafts will be restricted to three hours then they have to leave the airport to park some where else. It is up to the pilots where they want to go.
At the moment only available in German: http://www.flughafen-zuerich.ch/ (click on "News" at the bottom of the page)
I read somewhere else that the Swiss Army allows to park some private aircrafts at Duebendorf airport (only a few km from ZRH).

I was lucky to see him arriving. When I was on the terrace at about 12:45 I was watching a rare guest, a 767-300 ER from Air China which was parked at the B-Dock, suddenly an A 310 from PIA came around the pier A and also parked very close to the terrace. The jet had a Pakistani and a Swiss flag at the cockpit window. A large group of spotters could watch Musharraf disembark the plane from about 20 meters distance. I was really wondering that they let him so close to the public although there were a lot of police, even two with sub-machine guns within the spotter crowd on the terrace. Musharraf and his people left short after with two Super Puma from Swiss Airforce.
BTW Condi Rice came in a B 737 (don't know the USAF name for it). She was parked at a stand near the hangars.
