Conclusion

The flight was very nice and smooth.
Hard product is very nice, except I feel the head rest could have been more comfortable.

The food was much better than excepted, maybe the only regrets is there were no snack bar during the flight in the galley.

The full service was offered in 3 languages : English, French and German .. quite rare for a North American carrier.

The new Senator lounge in Zurich is very nice except there is no champagne offered,
that should be usual for a lounge dedicated to the top client of Swiss and Star alliance.
