The all-new SWISS Business & First Class Menu Thread

Dear Flyertalkers

Together with our moderator totti we decided to reorganize the LX menu thread. I am pleased that he has taken up my suggestion that we should have an index in order to facilitate the navigation. I will try to maintain the index on a regular basis.

I hope you'll enjoy this new thread and keep it alive with regular updates. As you can see there are still a couple of sectors missing. I am counting on you since I can't do all the flying and work . To encourage all of you, I will post a few menus from recent trips (some of them with pictures).

Thank you very much for your support and merry christmas.

Kindest regards, f4freeJunior

[COLOR=&quot]PS: Please don't forget to indicate the flight numbers and date alongside the menu. There is a small code written somewhere in the menu (e.g. F-161-C3 06/09-09/09 (161)). Please also indicate this code if possible. Thank you for your cooperation.[/COLOR]


Index updated up to post #378.

Thank you for taking on this task, f4freeJunior.

May I add two suggestions:
  • Indicate the date alongside each menu and in the index
  • If I am not mistaken, the menus are usually the same for all flights Switzerland-North America and vice versa. Maybe it would be good to have a little overview on menu similarities ("Your flight is not on listed? The following destinations have identical menu options...").

+2

Also I believe (in my limited experience anyway) the same menu is offered every 3 months.

You may also like to ask Kiwi Flyer to update the link to the LX menu thread in this sticky.

Suggestion 1: Noted and already applied. Thanks for your suggestion!
Suggestion 2: concerning the overview I am not quite sure how to do that. I have no idea which flights have identical menus. Can you give me advice on that please?

thank you for uploading the pictures hilltopper. Which flight (and date) was that? Post #4 is ZRH-PVG but you were on a different flight right? I am asking so that I can link it correctly in the index. Thank you.

Sure, the flight was LX 242 ZRH-DXB and it was in September 2009. The only difference in the menu is the garnish which come with the first choice of main... according to my menu it is a "glazed sunchoke" rather than a "Jerusalem artichoke"... they take political sensitivities quite seriously at Swiss!

We need an LX Y menu thread. I flew a lot on LX Y to New York up to 2 years ago and the food was just as bad or worse than Continental.
