SWISS Apologises with $300 and 5k Miles

My friend and I experienced SWISS First Class from Zurich to San Francisco a few weeks ago and the entire experience was a bit disappointing. We didn’t get a limousine transfer, the lounge experience was “meh”, and while the flight itself was okay, the food wasn’t the best and there were a few flaws with the seat. I usually don’t send in complaints because I… Read More

Zurich: No Limousine Pick-Up in SWISS First Class

Lufthansa First Class is the way to fly. Period. End of story. In my eyes, Lufthansa surpasses all expectations a First Class passenger can have – from the incredible First Class Terminal to the Porsche Transfer to the actual First Class cabin. Sadly the same cannot be said about SWISS International Air Lines First Class, which I’ve flown a number of times… and I’m never overly… Read More

Happiness in a Picture

Here’s my happiness in a picture… actually more like in a screenshot: I was lucky to book two seats for myself and a friend next month from Zurich to San Francisco using Miles & More miles (I’m a Senator so I can bring along a companion even if they’re not a Senator).

Book Now: SWISS First Class Awards Wide Open For Miles & More Elites!

SWISS First Class is awesome – while it isn’t as amazing and incredible as Lufthansa First Class, SWISS First Class is still definitely in my top five. I’ve flown SWISS First Class a few times already on all of their long-haul aircraft (Airbus A330, Airbus A340, and Boeing 777) and because SWISS First awards are restricted to Miles & More Senators and HON Circle Members,… Read More

Flying the SWISS Bombardier CS100

Hello from Zurich! I just had the pleasure of flying the SWISS Bombardier CS100 aircraft from Kraków to Zurich. While the flight time was only one hour, it was truly amazing to fly the new aircraft SWISS is operating on European routes. The SWISS Bombardier CS100 has been gradually introduced into the fleet meanwhile the Avro RJ100 has been retired. The new CS100 aircraft is… Read More

My $800 SWISS Business Class Error Fare Ticket

I love SWISS. They’re an awesome airline with a great First and Business Class product and stunning lounges at their hubs in Zurich and Geneva. Yesterday I had the pleasure of booking a SWISS Business Class error fare ticket from Zurich to San Francisco, round trip, for less than $800 USD. SWISS wasn’t the only airline involved in the error fare from Munich to San… Read More

Lufthansa First or SWISS Business?

I’m flying in a few days and naturally, I haven’t booked anything yet. As I explained yesterday, I love to book last minute because I literally have a wide selection of airlines to select from. Should I fly Lufthansa First or SWISS Business Class? I’ve flown Lufthansa First Class more times than I can count, but I’ve only flown SWISS Business Class once a few… Read More

Flying SWISS First on the Boeing 777-300ER!

Grüezi! Last Thursday I had the privilege of flying SWISS First Class from Zurich to Los Angeles on HB-JND, one of SWISS’ brand new Boeing 777-300ER aircraft. The flight was absolutely incredible and the new First Class product is miles ahead of SWISS’ A340 First Class, and also even a bit better than SWISS’ A330 First Class. I redeemed 85k Miles and More miles two days… Read More

Preview & Photos: New SWISS First Lounge Zurich

SWISS has recently opened a brand new First Class/HON Circle Lounge in Zurich in the “Dock E” concourse, which I’ve been wanting to visit since the opening day as the lounge is truly spectacular. Like all other SWISS First Lounges, the new SWISS First Lounge Zurich Dock E is only accessible if flying SWISS or Lufthansa First Class (or connecting from a First Class flight)…. Read More
