Birmingham-Zurich 20January

Straight from Universirty I headed to BHX to catch flight LX425. (HB-JAO)
Swiss had 2 check in desks one for business class passengers and 1 for economy class passengers.
I checkied in 1 bag 8 kilos. I was asked about if I had a swiss visa I replied I don’t need one. Lady at check in insisted I do need one I kept saying no. she asked her collegue next to her and he mentioned I need one. I replied I called the embassy twice they said no. she then said she will check me in and will advise me at the gate if I will need a visa or not. I was given seat 5A.

After venturing in the airport and a few drinks we were called to board the plane at 18:30 (Flight ETD is 18:30).
We waited in a small room and while we were boarding the lady who was taking the boarding cards said: I remember you… there was something with your booking.. I replied nothing.. see ya and we walked to the aircraft

we departed 20minutes late. The pilot apologised about the delay due to late arrival of the a/c. the ERJ 145 is tiny and some passengers had to bend their head to avoid hitting the ceiling.
20minutes into the flight we were served a sandwich (cheese or ham) with drinks (including alcohol) the cabin crew made sure everyone had drinks; I had 2 bottles of wine (small).

Flight was uneventful, (no pictures as dark)

20minutes before we landed we were handed SWISS chocolate which were delicious (I’m a chocoholic so Switss chocolates… yummy)

We landed at Zurich on time as we had some strong tail wind.

Nice report, thanks for sharing. Swiss is still a great airline, I have flown them on about 30 flights so far, and I always enjoyed them, especially the motivated staff.

Hi Soups,

Thanks for the report and the pictures, especially I like the pic with the rotating A340, this spot was simply fantastic, it was awesome to be so close to the action.

Regarding Swiss, they definitely belong to my favourite airlines and they are certainly on the same level like SQ or CX. I also flew on them to the ZRH meeting and I was really impressed about the professional and friendly behavior of the F/A's.

It was nice to meet you in ZRH!

Patrick

Wow, nice report and great pictures following!

Tonight I was on American Eagle EMJ-145 SHV-DFW and the interior is the exact same, but wow, the food! I know it is a simple cheese on a baguette or whatever, but such a nice presentation. Let me ask, was it staffed with one or two flight attendants?

the first plane I boarded on was swissair, from ACC to ZRH and then ZRH to YYZ by Air Canada. As for their chocolate, it tastes very very good, I remember my sister getting lost at ZRH airport cause she wanted to go by more.
Is swiss part of skyteam?

No, as Swiss is owned by LH it is (will be) part of Star Alliance.
