Swiss Business Class, throne seat on A330 YUL-ZRH

Fri May 19, 2017 4:20 pm

Flt LX 87 Montreal (YUL) – Zurich (ZRH)
Aircraft: Airbus A330-300ER
Duration: 7hr 25min
Seat: 12A (Business Class – Throne Seat)

When flying solo, my favorite seats in Business class are the ‘Throne seats’ which offer a great mix of space and privacy – 4A/6A/8A/10A. I do my best to snag them at the time of booking or during online check-in, 24 hrs before the flight. This time I was in seat 12A.


Shortly upon settling in, we were offered a hot towel service followed by our pre-departure drink. I chose a glass of champagne (Duval-Leroy Brut) and browsed the menu.Image

Plenty of room for work and play – Food tray, Seat controls and remote control


The Amenity Kit;

Once in the air and at cruising altitude, the crew was quickly in action with a drinks service followed by the first meal. For passengers that don’t like a full dinner service, the quick ‘Dine and Recline’ option is great. I usually opt for this when connecting after a long flight onto the next. For this flight however, I was set to experience the full service.


Quite often the meal service in Business Class tends to be long and drawn out. Not on this flight though, the service was really well paced and allowed sufficient time after to get some work done before tucking in for the night.

Lie Flat Bed;

It is a solid product and if you are able to snag a throne seat, even better! The friendly and attentive crew running a tight service was the cherry on top. The only critique (if I must) is that the setup (entertainment system etc.) on my flight was dated and seems ready for a refresh. Would love to try the new Swiss Air business class product on that route.
