SWISS aligns its A340 and B777 passenger experience

0
The first of SWISS’s five Airbus A340s scheduled for a nose-to-tail cabin refurbishment has re-entered service, flying from Zurich to Tokyo on March 7th. The five aircraft are being refurbished consecutively, with all five A340s due to be refurbished by summer of this year.
The refurbishment program is intended to bring the inflight comfort levels of the A340s in line with the carrier’s Boeing 777 interiors, and entails developing and installing new first, business and economy class seats, fitting a new IFE system with internet connectivity, installing new galleys, and comprehensively modernizing the entire interior (including adopting a new lighting concept) across all three cabin classes.

The galley monuments, stowage units and front-row monuments have been developed and produced by Bucher Leichtbau AG, with an emphasis on optimizing the layout of the workplace for crew, improving the design of the cabin, and enhancing the overall passenger experience.
