Hello,

I had landed from Munich before and had ca. 3 hours connection time in Zurich.
So I visited the excellent viewing terrace on Dock B to get some nice aircraft views including the following one:

Entry to the terrace is free of charge if yu present a boarding pass for the same day. This is a great service.

After a while I headed to the superb Swiss Business Lounge at Dock E to which I had access due to Miles & More Silver status.
I must admit that this is one of my favourite lounges visited so far.
It has such a nice atmosphere, great apron views, very nice food and drinks AND another free of charge outside viewing terrace which you can directly access from the lounge!



Soon boarding started in quite orderly manner and I boarded our nice Swiss Airbus 330 for the flight to Miami.

The seats were comfortable and pitch correct for Economy Class.
Provided on seat was a pillow, a blanket and headphones.



The cabin was equipped with very nice mood lighting which changed colours.

Due to late connecting passengers we took off with a delay of ca. 45 minutes.

The very friendly crew started service with a snack mix which I enjoyed together with a Campari Orange.

Afterwards the main meal service started with a choice of two main dishes. I selected the chicken - overall the whole meal tasted very good.



Crew passed around with more drinks and additional bread runs from the basket.

When clearing the trays I ordered a cup of tea plus some Baileys to finish off.

The crew made very frequent passes with water and half way through the flight they served a movie ice cream snack which simply tasted amazing.

2 hours before landing a hot towel was offered followed by a small snack with Pizza Calzone and a cookie which also tasted good.

Before landing the crew distributed the famous Swiss chocolates.

The descend towards Miami Airport offered some very nice views including some of Miami Downtown.
