I parked my car in Lisbon airport at P3 long term parking outside (relatively cheap, about 300 Euros for 3 weeks stay).
Smooth checking at swiss/portway business counter at Lisbon airport.
Beautiful new TAP /Star alliance business lounge in Lisbon with fresh colours and delicious "canapes".
Swiss LX 2085 LIS-ZRH
A321-111 HB-IOC "Eiger"
As always Swiss service was organized and friendly. Water & towel already at the seat when we boarded.
On time Close door 12:21, push back 12:24, take off 12:34 (official depart. 12:20)
Choice of beef ragout with Choux de Bruxelles, Potato gratin & Thyme sauce
or Indian vegetable curry with Saison Salad
Cheese & grape
Vanille Mousse with plum
Red wine from Valais or Chasselas white wine as swiss wine selection: excellent both.
Touch down 15:59 on time
I let you enjoy the breathtaking pictures, i could switch to both sides of the cabin to take them, as 4 seats were empty.
Load was about 85% -90% I would say.
Very attentive service (the Maitre de Cabine was very entertaining) and communicative pilots. Overall a flight to remember.
Later I will post my continuation flight to Bangkok.
