Nice new business class
In spite of the box and lack of a window the seat was fine but mainly because I was occupied with reports - I would normally want a window. Service, all aspects of the cabin crew and quality of food were excellent. Will continue to use Swissair but aim for different seat. Overall I have no serious complaints and would recommend Swissair
Seat is reasonably comfortable should only be used when travelling with a companion as 7a has no aisle access ife basic seat controls can be changed if you have big elbows
Quite Seat. In the legroom is the box for the IFE. There was power available at the Place
Interior of 340-300 is tired. Constant outages with entertainment system.
As noted elsewhere, the entertainment box consumes half the foot space for this seat. The impact on comfort is noteworthy -- should indeed be marked yellow!
The A340-300 is a very old plane. The audio/video is decrepit. These bulkhead seats have limited foot room, not like the diagram shown. The A330-300 that we were on last September (Boston-Zurich) was great.
Seat 14B is jutting out from the rest of the B seats and as such sits under the air conditioning vent. 10 hours from JNB to ZRH with a blast of cold air on my right shoulder. Avoid this seat at all cost.
Ignore older reviews about an entertainment box taking legroom, apparently some of the fleet has been upgraded because seats were modern and had touchscreens in the headrests. I just had a very comfortable flight from ZRH to CPT. I'm 188cm and athletically built, the seat was plenty comfy. Row 35 is just about the ideal row for night flight because you're halfway between the toilets so you don't get bothered. People in front of you go forward, people behind you go to the back. Personal entertainment screen had ample movies, series and games. I just can't understand people whining about legroom etc. Perhaps other planes are still older. Edelweis service in economy was excellent by the way. Recommended.
Worse experience ever. Avoid economy if you can. 11hr flight of torture and I am fit 188cm tall person. The seat is toooooooo narrow.
The entertainment box takes half of the space for your legs. It almost impossible to put 2 legs in if you are not super thin with short legs and small feet. The seats with the box should be marked at least yellow. For taller people red. All this for a 90s entertainment system with a poor display.
Thanks. Your existing comments were useful. I would however like to add that seat 45G also has limited legroom due to the presence of what I think was an entertainment box. This did not apply to seats 45D and 45E.
Avoid 45G with all you are worth! Your face is 30cm away from the toilet and 1 meter away from the galley. The seat reclines 6mm and to cap it all more than 50% of your legroom is taken up by a huge pre-2000 media box. Most definately the worst experience ever. Luckily, the staff were great.
Very disappointed with SWISS, mega tight seats (i'm 1,9m tall) Multimedia just like en early 2000's, mine was broken, no TV during an 12 hours flight!!! Never gonna pick Swiss again when going on A340...
Equipment boxes restricting legroom are not only found under seats A, D, G and K. I was seated on 24J and got one such box under front seat 23J. Makes seating with long legs rather uncomfortable.
Mediabox under seat in front!
I had E42 which was very annoying to watch a film. Lucky it was a night flight and I slept most of the time. On the plus side there is way more leg rooms on 42 D,E and G.
Tall travellers, avoid. Narrow seat, both armrests immovable. Electronic box under seat in front. Monitor shifted by half a seat.
Very little legroom, and when the passenger in front of you reclines the back of their seat is in your face only about 20-25 cm. Miserable experience. I am a small person, cannot even imagine how a tall, bigger passenger could handle this. Washroom is right behind the seat, smelly and frequently visited by fellow passengers. Food used to be good on this flight not any more.
Old First class, but great service. The entertainment display is very small.
