Onboard the very first Swiss Air Boeing 777, on its first day of passenger operations and on its second flight! This was February 8th 2016 and its first ever departure from Geneva. This beautiful aircraft is being used on short routes for a while, like many airlines do, its to train the crew and give them some experience with passengers onboard before they’re used for longhaul routes. The Swiss 777’s will eventually replace their fleet of A340’s.
There was lots of media presence, lots of people with cameras filming people board the aircraft and passengers were allowed to take pictures and get quite up close with the enormous GE-90 engines! Flight was very full, didn’t see any empty seats, most people seemed to be aviation enthusiasts with cameras out.

Beautiful views throughout the flight because of the low altitude. Especially during the climb out of Geneva and while holding for our arrival in Zurich. Rather gusty approach into Zurich, can see the wingflex quite well from the position I was sat.
This video also includes a look around the interior before disembarkation so you can see the inside of Swiss Air’s brand new aircraft.
Thanks for watching!
