Incredible Fare: Stockholm to Bangkok SWISS Business Class from $1,123 Roundtrip

One of the better Star Alliance carriers, SWISS, is currently offering an incredible Business Class fare for travel between Sweden and Bangkok for travel deep into next year. If you can position yourself to Stockholm (or if you happen to live in Stockholm), you can currently fly SWISS Business Class to Bangkok via Zurich on fares starting at around $1,123. That's a price that's unlikely to be bettered any time soon.

Is SWISS Using ‘Married Segment’ Logic To Limit Award Availability?

When it comes to general program rules and knowing how and when to use various loyalty currencies I'm more than comfortable left to my own devices but, every now and again I encounter something that makes me stop, think and wonder if what I'm looking at is a glitch, an oddity or a program's feature that I didn't know about.

Try Out SWISS’ 777-300ER Business Class For 25,000 Miles

SWISS' 777-300ER aircraft are, more often than not, scheduled to operate on some of the airline's more premium long-haul routes out of Switzerland. Los Angeles and Hong are just two of the far-flung destinations that SWISS' ten 777 aircraft serve but, for a brief period this summer, SWISS will be flying a 777 a lot closer to home.

SWISS Is Now Flying Its First Refurbished A340…And It Looks Good

In the same way that the Boeing 747 is out of date and largely uneconomical so is the Airbus A340....so it was more than a little surprising when SWISS reversed a decision to retire its five A340s and, instead, refurbish them and give them a new lease of life.

I Passed On A Fantastic Award Opportunity….And Got Very Lucky!

There are a number of international premium cabin products that are well worth getting excited about. Some offer something reasonably unique (like Etihad's First Class suites), some offer fantastic service (like Cathay Pacific First Class) and some offer a pretty amazing all round experience (like Singapore Airlines Suites Class) but all of these are reasonably accessible to everyone as long as you can pull enough miles/points together for an award.

SWISS To Refit A340s With New First, Business & Economy Class Cabins

Airbus A340 aircraft are not exactly the rage nowadays thanks to their inefficient 4-engine setup so it's a little bit surprising to hear of a European airline retrofitting these aircraft with state-of-the-art cabins...but that's exactly what SWISS is doing. What makes it more surprising is that the airline is in the process of phasing out the A340 in favour of the more efficient Boeing 777-300ER.

SWISS 777-300ER Business Class – Stockholm to Bangkok From $1,675 RT

In this hobby the primary aim is usually to travel in as much comfort as possible with as little outlay as possible (I even wrote a blog about that very point)....but sometimes it's worth making a small exception to that rule. SWISS has recently introduced fantastic looking Business and First Class products on its new Boeing 777-300ER aircraft (more on those a little later) and it's not often that you see a fare as low as this one that allows you to sample a product that looks this good.

SWISS New First & Business Class Cabins – Boeing 777-300ER

Staring in January 2016 SWISS will take delivery of the first of nine Boeing 777-300ER aircraft with a "state-of-the-art cabin product in all seating classes". That's a big claim to make although, if SWISS' present cabin products are anything to go by, they may well be telling the truth.
