Swiss Unveils New First Class and Business Class Seats

Swiss First Class is one the world’s most exclusive First Class experiences, typically far out of the reach of most Miles & Points enthusiasts. On the other hand, its more-accessible business class product is showing signs of age on many aircraft, and is in need of a refresh.

Today, Swiss released details of its new First Class and business class products, which are to be known as “Swiss Senses”. The upcoming refresh will also apply to premium economy and economy cabins.

In many ways, the cabins are quite similar to the new Lufthansa Allegris seats that were unveiled earlier this week, albeit with Swiss branding. The Zurich-based airline will debut the new products on its upcoming deliveries of Airbus A350-900 aircraft, and will also retrofit its Airbus A330-300 and Boeing 700-300ER aircraft in the coming years.

The renderings of the Senses First Class suites show floor-to-ceiling walls, a lockable sliding door, spacious wardrobes, and plenty of privacy.
