This was one of 5 sectors that i flew with Swissair on a recent holiday. On each flight i found the service good and the seat configuration seemed to provide just a little more legroom than other airlines in economy. The flights were on time and the staff and service were very good. They are part of the Star Alliance...

Okay, so. I paid very cheap for a return ticket London - Rio. Like, very cheap. Zurich - Rio flight was with Edelweiss air and London - Zurich was with Swiss Air. Upon arrival at Zurich, the airport doesn't show the connection flights information. By the time I found a very rude Swiss air staff member, she tells me and...

My husband and I had the last two seats on the back of the plane with plenty of leg room and plenty of room to recline the seat. It was a 12 hour flight and we got food,/snacks and drinks every 2-3 hrs. The on-board entertainment was pretty good as well. So far Swiss International is my favorite transatlantic airline.
