How Good Is Swissair?

Sun Nov 21, 1999 11:40 pm

I fly them all the time. I noticed that their business class sunk as fast as the Titanic in recent times. What do other people think?

The longhaul business class on the 332 and the M11 is very good. They all have PTV's and a stand up snack bar. The crew is very friendly and professional. The shorthaul business class on the 320/319/321 is average.

BTW: The new first class is the best i've ever seen.

Their short haul business class is crap. They only have stand up bars on some long haul routes and the PTV's on the Md11's are gone.

Teahan, since you asked what people think; I think these rating threads are getting a bit ridiculous - as far as they weren't from the start.

Also, if your user info is correct, I think you may want to wait with posting messages in an open forum for a few years. At least until you get the four letter words out of your system.
With all due respect, I am of the humble opinion that if you can't express your opinions in an orderly fashion using appropriate vocabulary, it is best left unexpressed at all.

But who am I to say, right?

Finally, I wonder what it is exactly that you expect from C Class on very short and short flights. If a flight lasts thirty minutes, there's not much more a FA can do than serve you a meal or snack and a drink, and be polite while doing so. Comparing service on long haul and short haul is like comparing apples and oranges.

Best regards,

TriStar.

They all have PTV's. They took the old ones out and put some new in.

Swissair's long-haul business class on its MD11's and A330's is excellent. They all have ptv, new ones on MD11. F/A's are very friendly, food is above average. Seats are very confortable. The 747's are old, but only in use until january 2000.
