Late last week SWISS updated their timetable for 2017 with 4 updates concerning the 777 the days it will fly on certain route. This is just the first batch of changes and more will be coming in the next few weeks. For now, here is what is changing with 777 service going into 2017:
Zurich – Bangkok will see the A340-300 replace the 777 between March 28 and April 22 on 3 of the 7 flights each week. The A340 will fly the route on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday while the 777 will fly the route on the remaining days. These days are based on Zurich departures.
Zurich – Montreal will see the 777 replace the A330-300 between March 26 and May 31 on 3 of the 7 flights each week. The 777 will fly the route Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday while the A330 will fly the route on the remaining days. These days are based on Zurich departures.

In the final ‘installment’ covering the opening of SWISS’ new lounges in Zurich, I’ll take a look inside their Business Class Lounge. This new lounge, like the FIRST and SENATOR Lounges are located inside the airport’s ‘E’ Concourse.
The Business Lounge is the largest of the 3, covering 13,000 square feet and can hold up to 200 visitors at once. It makes sense for this lounge to be the biggest, since it is the ‘easiest’ of all the 3 lounges to get in.
Like the SENATOR lounge, the Business Class Lounge offers guests 4 shower rooms as well as an upgraded food service. Hot foods are prepared fresh in front of guests, and cold buffet offerings are present as well. A self-serve bar is available as well and guests have access to an outdoor terrace.
Thanks again to VielFliegerTreff’s Ralf (RCS) for sharing his photos…….
