Atlanta To Athens On Swissair Via Zurich

Sat Jun 02, 2001 9:39 am

I have a trip to Greece in two weeks starting in Atlanta. I had been told by the travel agent that it would be on Delta through New York but I found out that I fly non-stop from Atlanta to Zurich on a Swissair A330-200 and then from Zurich to Athens on a Swissair A321. Coming back will be the same aircraft. I'll be in economy for all of the flights. What should I expect? Is there reasonable space and good service? What is the entertainment like? I was also wondering about the seat assignments. I was looking at my tickets today to Zurich. There are five people including me going on this trip. Four of the seats are 34 FGJK. Where in the plane is that and where in the row is that. An Airbus A330 is a 2-4-2 layout in economy and the letter K comes farther than eighth in the alphabet, so I am not sure where those seats will be. Does anyone know? Expect a full trip report when I get back.

It might be like this with the numbers. They just leave some out sometimes.
"AB DEFG JK"
K should be a window seat.

Have a great trip and tell us in a detailed trip report afterwards please.

Regards,
B737-700

Hi!

On the SR A330 there are PTV´s at every seat. Food is great but space is nothing special, just avarage.

B737-700: You are right, K is a window seat.

In the A321 I´m quiet shure they have leather seats, but I can´t remember exactly.

Have a nice trip!

Regards,

Thanks so far for the info. I did check the Swissair website and the A321s do have leather seats in the whole aircraft. There were no seating charts though, so thanks a lot for the info about the seating.

Hello,

Row 34 is about 1/2 way between door 3 and 4 (the last door) It is a good bit after the wings. The seats are as follow:

Window Seat -> 34A
Aisle Seat -> 34B

Aisle Seat -> 34D
Middle Block Seat -> 34E
Middle Block Seat -> 34F
Aisle Seat -> 34G

Aisle Seat -> 34J
Window Seat -> 34K

I don't mind scanning in the seat map if you really want it! On the A321, try and get a seat before row 17. They are slighly more comfortable.

Don't forget to get a Qualiflyer membership for miles. I look forward to a trip report. Bon Voyage!

Hi, Im going from London - Geneva in a few weeks on Swissair as well and I have done a bit of reaserch. Im not sure about your long haul flight but your short haul will be a good aircraft with a 3-3 seating (except in first class where its 2-2) They are leather seats - if you search on the front page of this web site Swissair A321 then scroll through the photos you will find some pictures of the inside of the aircraft. Have a great trip and I look forward to hearing all about it when you get back.

I also think you made a good choice. I think Swissair is much better than Delta. Swissair improved their service a lot for the summer timetable, this means better and more food for passengers and bigger choice. Hope you will enjoy your flights with Swissair.
By the way, Swissair's Business Class seating configuration on their Airbus A319/320 and A321 is 2 and 3 not 2/2.
Cheers

Actually, I didn't pick to fly on Swissair. The travel agent booking the trip did, but I am still really happy about it. I have heard so many good things about Swissair and I can't wait. I'll give a trip report about it when I get back.
