I want to try the new SWISS Business class on 777 300ER after having try the SWISS First last summer :

Check in :

As I was connecting from a flight from Hanoi I arrived around 2pm in Singapore and had to wait until for 4pm for the early check in counter to open.
Check in was quick as only 1 person was before :

Lufthansa also offer early check in :

Conclusion

The SQ lounge in Singapore is very good, probably on my top 3 in the world for business class in term of food and drinks.

The Swiss Business class on this B777 offer more space and intimacy on the throne seats if you fly alone. the screen and entertainment is definitely better than on the airbus so far.

The amenities kit winter hat was a good idea.

In term of food and beverage, it was pretty standard for Swiss, good quality and quantity but nothing sparkling or outstanding.
