Obviously, you need to search for two passengers to see the correct fares and then make the booking for two people together to get the reduced price.

Swiss First class

Both Swiss and Lufthansa offer excellent first class products. I would probably go for Lufthansa for the ground services where you get a private First terminal at Frankfurt and driven to the aircraft in a Porsche! Both serve caviar on board too!

Swiss First sale

Swiss first class caviar – a bargain at these fares!

I have flown Swiss first class and would highly recommend it too. It may not be as fancy as some of the Middle East airlines, but it is a sophisticated product with great food (including caviar) and service. Some of the prices are similar to what you would pay for a normal business class ticket, so they offer good value for money. Roving Reporter will be doing a review of his Swiss First experience in the future.

  1. Only allowing connection via Zurich?

  2. I’m struggling to get my head around this. I’m totally flexible in that if I like the sound of it I’ll go where the bargain flights take me but this bargain is coming at too high a price in terms of hassle and time wasting.

    I like the idea of joining, say, Qatar at a European airport but to fly to Stockholm to be flown south to a Swiss/Lufthansa hub to start the long-haul makes it a painful journey. My test itinerary got me to Munich 9 hours after leaving Heathrow and now needing an overnight.

    But I then thought of another complication.

    We spend a lot of time in southern Europe and currently plan our travel, (possibly unnecessarily, but who knows?) to comply with the Schengen 90/180 rules, should they come into force for us. Every overnight in Schengen costs us two of our valuable 90 days.

  3. Hi David, I see your point about the Schengen Rules, but remember that there is a transition period until the end of 2020 during which all of the free movement rules will still apply. So whilst it’s good to keep this in mind for future, it won’t come into effect for at least another year.

  4. Actually, Swiss does not normally serve caviar – they serve Balik Salmon instead. Caviar is done once a year only for a month
