    Overall, it was a pleasant and very efficient flight. The flight was almost full, I'd say 90%. A sprinkling of empty seats here and there.

    Even though the plane took off from Singapore slightly late (takeoff was about 30 minutes behind schedule), we arrived on time.
    Originally, the plane was scheduled to park at the International terminal at Zurich. However, upon landing, the announcement came on and informed that we would be parked at the European terminal instead. That saved us the hassle of a transfer.

    Some pictures.

    Swiss Air fleet. No Boeings. It is interesting that on a full load with 3 classes, the long-range Airbus A340 is rather small in terms of capacity. Only 219 seats.

    These were the movies for children. A decent selection. Kept my kids suitably entertained during their waking hours.

    For the price we got, the flight was a good deal and good on the pocket!

    Gee such a comprehensive review of the check-in, boarding, seat comfort, in-flight service and other relevant flight experiences - this was a complete WASTE OF TIME to read. THANKS FOR NOTHING.

    "Swissair" officially "died" on March 21, 2002. The company now is called "Swiss"!

    If you'd click on his links, you'd see that he did post a video of the flight, and some pictures of the meals and general flight service. And I'd love to see some of your comprehensive contributions and interesting articles.o_O
