Hi,

Check In and security was rather quick and I soon found myself in the very nice and modern departure area of Porto Airport.

Boarding started ahead of time via an airbridge. From the glassed airbridge I had some nice apron views.

A friendly cabin crew welcomed everybody and I took my seat in the back of the plane on that fully booked flight.
The cabin is nice and modern and the seats comfortable.
However the pitch is rather limited and was definitely much better two weeks ago on the same plane in Business Class in the front part of the plane.

We taxiied to the runway perfectly on time while a safety video was playing on the small but nice overhead screens.
A pre-recorded announcement in Portuguese language was also provided to welcome passengers.

Flight time was announced by the very friendly Maitre de Cabine as 2 hours 20 minutes.

We powered quietly into sunny skies and had great views of Porto while circling to cruising altitude

Service started soon and a food trolley rolled down the aisle from the front followed by a drinks trolley.

A very nice and clever designed cold meal box was provided together with warm bread from a basket.

Once unpacked it looks like this.

Clever small compartments contained:
- Lentil salad with salmon
- Butter & Swiss cheese
- Cake

The whole food tasted fresh and excellent.

I had a red wine and water to go with it.

More bread was offered from the basket some minutes later but I declined.

Once the reusable meal box was removed away the drinks trolley was rolled down again and I had some more water and some tea.

This was soon followed by the famous Swiss chcocolates.

Conclusion

This was a perfect Economy flight within Europe - probably one of the best medium haul flights in Economy I ever took: The plane was modern and quiet, the service very relaxed and extremely friendly. Plus a great meal served eco-friendly on reusable hardware.
Thumbs up SWISS - keep that standard!
