Excellent. For a tall passenger the metal edge of the overhead locker door is an unexpected hazard.

Seats are the same at others but you have a space either side so you feel as if you have plenty of room. Good service from crew and nice food

Swiss were great - but both flights were late! For the return flight, Lufthansa AGAIN let me down by cancelling my flight out of Geneva. They are becoming the world's worst airline after being one of the best just 10 years ago. I had to queue for hours to get rescheduled and a hotel for the night.
