My new report would be the first part of my trip DXB-ZRH-WAW.
I decided to fly with Swiss as they introduced recently their new A330-300 so i took it in March 2011 to come back from Emirates.

Lufthansa Lounge


Choice for food is definitly before than in many business lounges in Europe.
It reminds me TK lounge in IST a bit.

I don't have many pictures from the flight, anyway it was real night flight. We had small sandwich and tiny breakfast before reaching Zurich.




IFE and Seats are really comfortable in LX A330-300, really better than old A330-200



Waiting for my second flight in Swiss Lounge (i USED to be a smoker :) )

Conclusion

Lufthansa lounge is nice but with flight to FRA and ZRH in the same time, it's suddenly too small really.

A330 is a really comfortable plane in LX settings.
But really tiny sandwich after reaching cruising altitude is a bit sad.
Then i wanted to buy duty free articles and Swiss Staff explained me i couldn't earn miles as i have LH Silver Card and not LX one.
Which is FALSE and i had to send all to Miles and More in Germany to obtain my miles...

Then in Zurich as usual, it's simple, quick and lounge there is so comfortable.
