| Vienna to Chicago via Zurixh with Swiss. VIE-ZRH on an Airbus 321 in Economy, ZRH-ORD on an Airbus 330-300 in Business. VIE-ZRH was a typical short European flight; flight was on time, seats okay with good legroom for Economy; cabin was only 70% full which added to the comfort; FA’s were friendly and professional; one drink run with a small sweet snack was adequate for the short duration of the flight. Web check-in did not work, but no problem as seat selection was possible and no lines at check-in counters. However carry-on limit of just 8 kg was heavily policed and strictly enforced at VIE. ZRH-ORD (day flight) slightly delayed on both departure and arrival, but did not cause problems. Flight was a very pleasant experience. Plane was not the most modern in the fleet, but fine with a 1-2-1/2-2-1 configuration with lie flat seats. IFE was AVOD; movie selection was okay, but not too extensive, TV selection was rather poor. Typical for European airlines the selection offered was rather light on new releases. FA’s were again professional attentive and regularly present in the cabin also between service runs. Meals served were tasty and with a Swiss touch. Lunch was Salmon Tarter (and two other choices) and Swiss Sturgeon (or Beef Tenderloin or Swiss Style Chicken Breast or Vegetable Curry). The second meal was a less interesting choice of Penne or Ceasar Salad. Wines served were also nice including some Swiss choices. OS’s Senator lounge in VIE was good without being great and had a decent breakfast offering. LX’s Senator Lounge at the E-gates in ZRH has be one of the nicest lounges in Europe with a huge open-air terrace with great with view of the apron. The lounge had various hot and cold food options and a solid drink selection. ZRH is probably (together with HEL) the best airport for transferring in Europe. Terminals are roomy and well designed. Border Control was friendly and with no waiting time; also no additional transfer security control for passengers arriving from other EU countries; a breeze. Very good long-haul product by LX and clearly recommended. For me, LX clearly offers the best overall product of the Lufthansa Group of airlines (LH, OS, SN, 4U and LX).
