It could have been hell. But it was Swiss.

In some countries, things just work. You pay for them. But they work.

Airlines, for example. This weekend, I flew Swiss from Zurich to Nice. Unfortunately, Nice wasn't very nice (it rained almost the entire time I was there) but Swiss was.

We had boarded the plane in Zurich and we were ready to taxi when the pilot realized something was wrong with the plane. In any other country (or with any other airline) this would have meant crazy delays and hassle, turning my weekend getaway into an extended airport stay. But with Swiss, this problem was taken care of like clockwork. "Naturally, we have another plane for you and we will be ready for take-off again in 45 minutes."

Yeah right.

But this is Switzerland. Within 45 minutes, as promised, we were on a new plane, a bigger plane, told we could spread out and make ourselves comfortable (yay, exit row!) and we were ready to take off, arriving in Nice only about 40 minutes behind schedule.

Then the French took about another 40 minutes to get us our luggage. But that's another story. A French one.

Rapid Rescore said...

This is a beautiful and rare informative post admin,Keep it continue , Thanks all the blogs.

A rapid rescore is a way to get more current information onto your credit report, usually for the purpose of securing a mortgage (although it might be used for other lending purposes).

If you discover correctable errors on your credit report (like an account listed that does not belong to you) and provide documentation to have those removed, a rapid rescore can get those items removed quickly from your credit report.

Or, if you significantly reduce the balances on your credit cards or even pay them off, before your credit card makes its monthly update to the credit bureaus, rapid rescore can get those payments posted faster.

A word of caution here: if you choose to pay off a card, do not close it. You will want to leave it open to keep the benefit of the available credit on that card. Doing so will improve your credit utilization ratio, which is worth 30% of your overall FICO score. So this is not an insignificant number.
