Seat: odd, sounds like something may have been broken? They're the same seats as in the A330, but modernised, and should work in the same way (the newer ones in the A340 have inflatable padding, and...

Update it on the website - if you can. I'm not sure you can, since the website often assumes 1 passport, but it might work.

If that fails, go to an enrollment centre (no appointment needed, but...

Did normal headphones work? Or did they perhaps have noise-cancelling headphones available? Double jacks are quite common in the forward cabins, but you can still use a standard single-3.5mm-jack...

There's just no point in better J seats on shorthaul. There aren't many "shorthaul" flights that are long enough for an american style domestic-F seat to be worth, and adding a fleet just for those...

Meh. Out of ZRH, UA's program can be just as good, depending on routes that you fly. M&M is definitely not 4x better, and if you happen to have some US credit cards (access is a little tricky, but...

Back in November, security after midfield immigration was... odd. They seemed to be trying to have separeate queues for US-citizens vs everyone else, but I still snuck into the US-queue with my...

Layovers < 24 hours are generally possible without counting as a stopover (i.e. no change in price). But it looks like you'd have to stay more than 24 hours (arriving 9am day 1, leaving 9am or later...

You have answered your own question. Summer is when prices jump.

You'll see similar jumps for many other starting points too, around the same dates.

Why not do: LH in one direction, LX in the other?...

Why not do: LH in one direction, LX in the other? Then you can compare both.

LX more private (in the 773 at least), LH more open cabin. Everything else pretty much depends on the day and the crew.

But where is this defined? Surely the above discussion proves that it's a fundamentally different concept?

(I was wrong in one point: light doesn't allow rebooking.)
