Economy Class on Swiss

To travel in style yet still pay economy prices, choose a seat in the exit row. On most long-haul flights on Swiss, the best seats for this purpose are in row 30. For our ten-hour flight to Chicago, we sat in row 30, seats J and K. I highly recommend them. If you don't believe me, have a look at my feet. They are actually stretched out in economy class. This is something really worth a photo, although my husband was too embarrassed to let me ask the flight attendant to take a really proper picture.

As far as seats on Swiss to avoid--definitely avoid 41D and 41G. These are aisle seats on the same Swiss long-haul planes, but are prime places for elbow pain as the seats directly behind this row of 4 are only in a row of 3, and thus beverage carts never fail to slam into the poor arm of the sitter of 41D and 41G.

Isn't it amazing how different seats that are the "same" can be! When we went to Japan we got a row of 2 behind a row of 3, and it was much more spacious than it would otherwise have been. Very nice. I'll have to remember the exit isle thing: Andy is wanting to take us to England sometime soon.

Yes, it seems unfair that some seats are so much better than others but then again when have airlines ever been fair about things?

How very true. Perhaps if they had played nice they would be in better shape now, and not need to go begging to the government like all the rest of the irresponsible businesses that want to reach into our pockets to support their losses. Ugh. Kindergarten: Play nice, be fair, don't cheat. It doesn't sound so hard!
