NEWS Swiss International Air Lines Takes Delivery of First 777-300ER

Swiss International Air Lines took delivery of their first Boeing 777-300ER today. Swiss has eight more 777-300ER’s on order waiting to be delivered. The new planes feature a fully redesigned cabin that will begin service on the Zurich-New York JFK route. Rumor from Australian Business Traveler is that they are testing in-flight calling, which has been a highly contentious move. The airline will closely monitor the feature during the 12 month trial period, which includes disabling the feature during the overnight parts of the flight. Swiss has not yet released prices for phone calls. For more info on the new inflight calling feature, see:
