Swissair From Chicago To Mumbai

Sun Mar 19, 2000 7:15 am

Is Swissair a good airline? How is the food, service, and entertainment? From Chicago to Mumbai (Bombay), where does the airline have a halt? Also, which aircraft fly this route? Thanx.

Great airline. Great food

Chicago-Zrh: SR 125 16:20-07:20 MD 11 Meal & Snack 08:30 hours.

Zrh-Mumbai: SR 192 11:55-00:20 MD 11 Meal & Light Meal 07:55 hours.

They are currently introducing ptv's on their MD 11's. The A 332's allrerady have them. Travel in business but do not get stuck in the middle seat. Better thean any other airline on those routes.

The intermediate stop is in zurich. The aircraft is the A-330. Some people love it, some people hate it. I think every seat has a personal TV and it has become free of charge. The service is above average. Nothing that special compared to CX, BA or AF. I think they have the most friendely cabin crew. The cabin crew serves ice cream when they show movies and the FAs come around with drinks and snacks every 15 mins.

I fly swissair all the time and they have never disappointed and are my fav airline.

Thanks

Ooops! The A-330 was switched for the MD-11. They dont have PTVs but they hand DVD players out.

Thanks

The DVD'S are in C or J class only. They are installing PTV'S. The crew only serve ice cream on some routes....Daytime flights TO the U.S.
