SWISS 777 Business Class Review

15 Jan 2020

We flew in SWISS business class onboard their flagship 777 aircraft as a part of a SWISS 3 Continent Global Fare. The cabin is large for a business class cabin, with 64 business class seats and an alternating 1-2-2 / 2-2-1 configuration.

The alternating configuration of the SWISS Business Class Cabin means each second row has a single seat near the window. These seats are known as throne seats and can be booked ahead of your trip for an additional fee. Alternatively you can take your chances when the seat selection opens up 24 hours before your flight departures. The throne seats not only mean you have direct aisle access and no-one next to you, but also come with a lot more storage.

The additional storage of the throne seat does make you feel a little ‘boxed in’ however once in your seat there’s plenty of leg room.

Your seat can be converted to a fully flat bed at the touch of a button. A sleep kit is provided including a comfortable quilt and a full size pillow. The layout of the cabin means that the bed is straight, but does have quite a bit of narrowing in the footwell.

Your seat can be adjusted to a variety of different positions allowing you to recline to watch the entertainment screen which is packed with on demand entertainment, or fully recline to a fully flat bed for sleeping.

Upon boarding we were gifted an Amenity kit packed with inflight essentials, along with noise cancelling headphones to use inflight.
