Air Canada Or Swiss In Business?

Wed Mar 28, 2012 6:43 pm

I am about to book a flight from US to Germany either with Air Canada or Swiss in business class. I have never flown with any of them and can't really decide which one to chose. Both of them look great but airlinequality reviews show better reviews for Air Canada then Swiss. Btw, I am 6'4 tall but not really heavy.
Thanks for all the recommendations!

Hi there

I am just back from Vancouver with AC. I flew on the 333 and while the service was very professional and the food fantastic, the seat was a bit cramped. Im 6'2 and I found it hard to lie flat comfortably. I havent flown LX long haul but if their short haul business is a hint, then I'd go with Swiss

Thanks...I compared their length and Swiss is about 60' while Air Canada is 70' and the width is just a tiny bit more on Swiss. I have never flown those herringbone seats or whatever they are called so this might be my chance....so many choices to make (in good way)!

I haven't tried AC's J Class yet, but LX's J Class is fantastic. Here are two reports:

Superb Stübli & Crew: LAS-LAX-ZRH-MUC, LX J Class (by PlaneHunter Jul 20 2011 in Trip Reports)
Fully Flat Bed To SFO: SWISS' New Business Class (by PlaneHunter May 7 2011 in Trip Reports)

AC J Class is good, and although I've never been on it I've heard that LX J Class is excellent. I'd go with LX if I were you.

Depends on what type of aircraft IMO...I prefer JX over AC, but if you its AC's 777, then jump on it my friend.

J class products on all AC widebodies (763, A333, 777) are basically identical. Why do you consider the 777 better?

Not been on either but judging by trip reports I've seen, LX business looks top of the class. However the AC J product also looks very nice.

Idk really, the 777 is my favorite craft--pretty bias, I know, but I can't help it lolol
