Status C Class On LX 343s?

Sun Jan 18, 2009 1:37 pm

Good day folks,

what is the current product Swiss has on its Airbus 340-300s in Business class.

I understand that they are introducing "revolutionary" new seats, but it would appear that this will be introduced on the new 330-300 that will be delivered starting now (ish)

So what seats do the 340-330 currently have? And when will they receive the new seats?

Why do I ask? Family is flying MIA-ZRH in May 2009 and equipment is 343 most times and we are wondering what to expect.

thanks

I beleive the new A333 will feature the new business class seats before the 340s get them.

Quoting BOAC911 (Reply 1):
I believe the new A333 will feature the new business class seats before the 340s get them.

Indeed, and since the A340 seats are pretty new, they are likely to be around for quite some time. And it wouldn't surprise me if they seats went away with the aircraft's, when they're replacing them in the future. Some of the A343's are in fact very old.

Current LX 343 J class seats.

I find them quite good, far better than their old and uncomfortable J seats on their A330-200s, which as already mentioned are being replaced with new A330-300s over the next couple of years. The 333s will have a completely new J product, which will also eventually replace the current J seats on the 343s.

The LX website has links to slideshows covering both their current and new longhaul J products.
