Swiss Boeing 777 Business Class Zürich to San Francisco






Wednesday newsletters always feature a luxury hotel and/or flight review.
Today (August 16, 2017): Trip report: Swiss Boeing 777-300ER Business Class Zürich (Switzerland) to San Francisco (USA).
On July 5th 2017, I flew Business Class in a brand-new Boeing 777-300ER of Swiss International Air Lines from Zürich Airport, also known as Kloten Airport, in Switzerland to San Francisco on the USA’s West Coast. Swiss International Air Lines (more commonly know under its short name Swiss, often stylized as SWISS) was formed after the 2001 bankruptcy of Swissair, Switzerland’s former flag carrier. The airline, which ranks among my favorite European carriers for longhaul flights, is a member of Star Alliance and a subsidiary of the Lufthansa Group since 2005. Swiss recently acquired 9 Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, which replace most of Swiss’ current and aging A340 planes although five A340s will remain in service and be refurbished. The experience on this B777 trip was great and clearly a step up from flying on Swiss’ A340s (which I reviewed here). But although I liked the elegant new cabin interior, I am not a fan of the constricting flat-bed and cramp cabin layout, which represents an updated version of Swiss’ old and not so comfortable Business Class seat configuration.
As usual, I made a Youtube clip with my impressions during the flight, which you can watch below. It’s a somewhat different video (compared to my other flight clips) since it prominently features the lovely kids of my best friends who joined me on this trip. I did not intend to film them, but they were so cute that I could not resist recording their excitement (with the permission of their parents) as they experience Business Class for the very first time. They give the clip a nice twist.
Swiss features in my top 10 lists of best airlines for longhaul Business Class, best airlines for longhaul First Class, and best airlines for in-flight meals.
