I Have flown SWISS last week from Tunis to Zurich and then to Geneva and I was unimpressed by those two flights... The flight from Tun to Zrh was operated by an ARJ and it was packed... We were served a cold meal though the flight departed Tunis at 13h00... I remember that Swissair used to serve hot meals on that trip... Anyway... I m flying LX from GVA to CDG and back this week on those ERJs , so what should I expect from these trips ???

Next flights : BRU-ZRH-CAI (LX)/ BRU-FCO-TLV (AZ)

I'd switch to Air France if I were you. Swiss (and Swissair before that) screwed up big time on that route. The planes are not comfortable, and since they are so small, they cannot use a jetway in Paris, which means the plane parks way out somewhere and have to be bused in. GVA-Paris competes with Air France, which offeres full-size jets, and of course the TGV, which takes maybe 1.5 hours or so more, in total, but leaves you in downtown Paris. No wonder that is one of Swiss' least successful routes.

I wreckon you can forget the hot meals. You'll get a sandwich if you're lucky.

Do you think making a transit through ZRH is better??? I can also get double miles fro the ZRH CDG flight....

If I can pick I always go via ZRH. Swiss is not horrible. IMO its better than AF but there are also personal things behind that. We have had many things destroyed by them and they never take responsibility. The plane are confortable IMO they have nice leather seats. It is true that the GVA-CDG is one of the worst routes for swiss. In fact I wouldn't be suprised if they dropped it.

Air Malta, don't go via Zurich, you will loose a lot of time!
The service on the GVA-CDG flight will be a little bit the same as what you got on the ZRH-GVA route. Drink and peanuts! Maybe, you will get a sandwich because it is an international flight.
