I have not been on their business class but I did enjoy the few occasions in economy. Their crew are usually nice and when I flew with BA just when they started to change that catering within europe, I did feel sorry flying with them. To me, BA is just like Easyjet, with nothing more.

It was an evening flight after an exhausting day and the crew instantly made me forget about the day. The maître de cabine welcomed me saying: we have a very nice white wine from the Lake Geneva. I’m sure you will like it and it will help you feel comfortable.
This made me smile. Food was nice. But I’ll never forget the service and the attention the crew paid to me. Awesome.

The A220 is a great little plane too. Those big windows really make it feel bigger than it is.

Unfortunately i never had the chance to fly business class, but economy class was also quite comfortable.
I hope one day i will have the opportunity to fly in a A220. Looking forward to it!

The business class meal looks nice indeed. And good to hear the onboard service was excellent. The C Series of Swiss is on my wish to fly list. I will travel in economy when the flight will happen. At least the seats are the same as those in business class.
A few years ago I experienced the CS300 of Air Baltic on a return flight Amsterdam - Riga. I remember the aircraft having rather big windows, comfortable seats and a modern feel to it. This aircraft type is a nice and welcome addition to the aviation world.

My guess is, because on short haul flights usually very experienced FA work up front, the lead FA, often a Maître de Cabin or Purser. On the A220, there are always 3 FAs and there is basically a dedicated FA to business class which allows a very attentive service.

How was the load on the flight? It didnt look too empty from the photos you've shared.
I flew on the A220 from ZRH to DUB (in Economy) last year and found it very good; it's a lovely aircraft in which to fly and I'd certainly fly in one again, and fly with Swiss. Being an enthusiast, course, Zurich is heaven for me!

One of the best flights I had was only 45 minutes. Las Vegas to Los Angeles on America West in a 737-200. I have flown first class several times in my life, but this little short hop was great. By the time we touched down, I was sloppy drunk! And I never get drink when I fly. Same like what you said, every time my glass was half done, the flight attendant kept filling it up! The service was impeccable, and I am pretty sure all I got in terms of a snack was peanuts . How could it beat my first class trips on 747's and long haul flights? I don't know how to explain it, but this 45 minute trip was memorable.
How big are the windows on the A220 compared to say a 737 or 320? I hear they are pretty good sized windows. Looks like Swiss Air is doing some excellent service.

Swiss is one of my most flown airlines and always has to be J. Excellent product and in over a decade of flying them I have had a 98% consistency rate. Thats some score.
Good to see even in these times good service. Before the lock downs I was able to catch the A220 myself. When things get back to some normality I will certainly be booking Swiss again.
