Hi! This is my first Flight Report and i hope it'll be ok.
I'm FTL member with LH and Silver as well with AF.
I decided to report some flights i did earlier at first.

So i took a SWISS Airbus A330-200 to Istanbul. This plane was sold in 2011 to Brussels Airlines, as Swiss was only operating A330-300 then.

I was flying in business class and finally i was upgraded to first seat…but with business service on this short flight (which is normal).

I found it quite old according to some other european airlines.

The pitch is really good although i don't find it attractive.

I decided to check IFE even if it was not set for medium-haul flight.

Food was ok even if i expected better food as i even got on short-haul flight as ZRH-WAW with LX.

Conclusion

Swiss is definitly such a good european airline. Flight attendants are welcoming and ready to make your flight being smoothy as possible (better than LH for sure).

I fly often with Star Alliance members and i definitly highly recommand you to fly with Swiss.

See you next time, and i'll make better photos for sure!
