Amazing Swiss A333 F Availability!
« on: December 12, 2010, 06:26:15 PM »
Swiss F availability is notoriously bad.  Especially on the A333 where there are awesome suites in F along with Swiss' great service.

I was looking for how to improve an itinerary for Levi who was going ZRH-FRA-JFK in Lufthansa F.  As I went through the Swiss destinations I noticed that availability for ZRH-YUL in F is incredible right now.  There were at least 2 F seats available for all the dates I checked!

LH F is a weak product.  But the FRA FCT is awesome.

Looking to fly Swiss in May to VEnice via Zurich on US mileage in business or first and not doing too good finding availability.  If not on ANA search, then I assume not available?

Did you look via all their gateways? (BOS, JFK, LAX, MIA, ORD, SFO, and YUL)

Looking at leaving any Sunday and returning any Thursday in May. Checked JFK, YUL, ORD, and BOS and nothing in Business or First. Does Swiss ever open up closer to date like Continental or what you see is what you get?
