"the legroom was ridiculous"

(Luxembourg)

BKK-ZRH on A343 at the last row (44 J and K). The airline had assigned us these seats despite our Star Alliance gold status which made me furious. The legroom was ridiculous and I'm only 5'9". Absolutely impossible to sleep (especially given the lovely proximity of the restrooms - flush and door every 2 minutes).

"seat seems to have no base cushion"

(Switzerland)

Seat seems to have no base cushion gave pillow away to lady sitting in seat beside me. It seems the seats are only suitable for 60Kg person who is under 1.65m. If you are any larger you will be cramped - good luck. Only choose airline for business or short-haul. It is not the Swiss of old.

"viewing of the TV screen difficult"

(South Africa)

The seat in front appeared to recline slightly more than the rest making viewing of the TV screen difficult.

"too small - that says it all"

(Switzerland)

Too small - that says it all. The box containing the inflight entertainment stuff is located under the seat in front of you - meaning there is even less legroom. Why on earth is the seat so hard?

"I hoped for a better seat"

(Switzerland)

With the arrival of these new aircraft I hoped for a better seat but I was wrong: the experience is practically the same as on the other Swiss' longhaul planes.

"could not use Swiss long haul again"

(Ireland)

30% of the room under the seat in front of you is taken up with a box containing equipment for the inflight entertainment. Should the person in front of you recline then you have 10 hours of agony with no personal space. I tried taking all material out of the magazine pocket to create extra room. Could not use Swiss long haul again even if I got it for free. I'm 1m 86 tall medium build and weigh 73.5kg.Hope this helps other travellers.

"very tight space"

(United States)

Very tight space for average and tall people there is a metal box underneath your front seat that takes feet space. Not recommended for a long haul flight. You must pray that the person in front of you doesn't recline or your knees will be crushed and the TV screen will be touching your forehead.

For tall people a horrible experience on a long haul flight. Will never use Swiss again unless they add leg room.

"very cramped seating"

(Luxembourg)

Very cramped seating especially in the reclined position. Unable to sit in any position other than the standard position real difficult when trying to sleep. Will not use Swiss again for long haul unless seats improve.
