I'm not sure what exactly your question is, but I would prefer the Swiss business seats to Euro Atlantic.

Sorry for not doing a good job.

Which option would be best choice for overall experience for 2 of us?

My son has been to over 30 countries and sat in overseas business class, first class 747 upstairs etc.

Now were going to Athens and Crete and have a few options to try. My question is which would be overall most fun if that is proper word. To him lounges business class etc. Are fun.

He's been to flsgship and centurian lounges and on 777w coach award seats are pretty bad options no real main cabin extra section on aa.

Shortest is via Budapest but not sure of lounges and 767 business class.

Thanks

Swiss is so much better. I'd suggest YUL as sometimes you get a B77W from there which offers the best comfort in Business. Also sometimes the ZRH-ATH flight is on an A330 or even B77W as well.

EuroAtlantic would definetly be a memorable experience though...

If you end up in a LX A330, yeah.... don't focus too much on the IFE. Screen is quite small and outdated
