Palma De Mallorca - Swiss In Business Part 2 Pics

Tue Jan 08, 2008 11:12 am

Hello all,

as everything nice must come to the end, my short trip to the island of Mallorca has came too. After a nice afternoon and morning of driving i have dropped a car in Sixt car rental off the airport.

My flight was at 15:35 but i got to the airport at 11:45 hoping to check in early and go to the business lounge. This did not happen as the check in opens here for ZRH flight 2 hours before flight.

Therefore I had time to kill before check in. Here are some pictures of the departures hall in PMI

This is called smoking lounge. It is a terrace on the roof of the airport when anybody can go and have a smoke or just enjoy some sun before departure. I love this place.

After I decided to get some snack as I only had a light breakfast.
I love these Spanish sandwiches. Simple and tasty.

The time passed quickly and I was now able to check in.

Quoting Alespesl (Thread starter):
This is called smoking lounge. It is a terrace on the roof of the airport when anybody can go and have a smoke or just enjoy some sun before departure. I love this place.

As since the re-modelling of the security checks the pub (which used to be located before security) is gone, the terrace is now the best way to kill time.
The only downside ofr A.netters is that there is no view of a/c.

I had the same meals this weekend on LX  Smile
I thought LX intra-European J class was a pleasant surprise. Free-flowing champagne, nice seats and generally friendly cabin crew.

I could have probably get some direct flight, but I preferred the 1 stop flight via Zurich. I was not going there on holidays. This trip was mostly to enjoy the flights, try LX C product and enjoy something different than home.

I have enjoyed the meal much more than from example Czech Airlines C meals or KLM's C meals.

LX brings in the old style of traveling, flowing champagne, wine, nice meal, top notch service. Service with a smile and attitude to provide passenger as much as can be provided. Next time I will travel on business or private, Swiss will be the airline i will consider amongs first.

In past 12 months I have flown with them 2 but only in Y. First trip PRG-ZRH-GVA-BCN and return AMS-ZRH-PRG and the second trip was PRG-BSL-PRG.

Nice report too, sorry to see the same meals on your return flights. We all know that LX has some more variaty for their premium passengers... but not for you this time.
It seems the load in C is good, out of PMI. And I think PMI is not a typical destination for C class pax. What do you think about it?

The load in C to/from PMI is pretty good. The A320 that operated the route had something like first 10 rows of C class seating, which is almost half of the a/c's space.

Economy was full, C was about 70 % full in both directions. I would say it would be close to 100 % full during the summer months when full season is running.

Nice follow-up report and pix, thanks.

We seem to have nearly as many LX reports as SQ these days!

Interesting to note the food on both flights was the same as previous flights though on different routes - how unlucky!
