Business Class, A330-300 Confirguration 8/45/183
Checked-in online, no waiting time at the security (very efficient as always) quick visit to the lounge and then on time boarding.
Friendly welcome on board. Switzerland Menu Cycle TICINO. Nice meal service, good quality food, friendly and charming crew and service. Flawless flight with just about the right amount of attention and a short rest time on this 5.30hr flight.
Ice cream service before landing in Dubai. Fast arrival cards already handed out on board which is very convenient.
Swiss Business Class Lounge Zurich:
The lounge is solid, food and and beverage choice rather basic, can be very crouded at times. There is a overflow area in the back but still tends to be full often. Upstairs is a the longest airport bar with cocktail service with a nice view.
There is going to be a XXL Lounge at the Dock E where all long-haul flights depart. This will probably bring some relief to the Airside Lounge and the shabby Panorama lounge in Terminal E. Looking forward to the its opening which should be in 4. quarter 2015.
