Review : Swiss Business Class, Paris-Zurich, Airbus A320

After a visit to the Senator Lufthansa lounge in terminal 1 of Paris Charles-de-Gaulle, we boarded the plane for Zurich.

The boarding gate still deserted


A priority lane is available and is properly marked, and boarding is given priority over the economy lane.

Conditions of eligibility for the priority file

At Terminal 1, the jetbridges are blind and do not allow you to see the aircraft upstream.

All Swiss aircrafts are named

Cabin and reception

The Swiss cabin is rather elegant but rather bland in medium-haul, with grey leather seats. It is the NEK model from LH Group, so quite thin and with limited comfort. But the pitch is excellent.

The pitch is excellent in the first rows of the cabin

The maître de cabine (the Swiss airline’s name for the chief purser) is friendly and welcomes passengers with a smile, then hands out small bottles of water.

The on-board literature is very complete and presented in a plastic pocket.

Service and catering

The service begins shortly after the crew is released. On this morning flight, it is a breakfast service.

A shelf a little cluttered with breakfast items

It’s good, it’s fresh and it’s quality. Obviously it is not at the level of the omelette served by British Airways, but it does the job and we went to the lounge before and will go there after.

Arrival and disembarkation

We arrive in Zurich on time and at the contact, then take the connecting route to the non-Schengen part of the airport.

Bottom line

A solid contribution flight, without frills but with a great regularity in the execution.
