After reading here a lot of horror stories about Swiss Economy Class, I was surprised to find nothing of that to be true.
The seats are not worse than those on any other aircraft I've flown with on the same route (KLM/747, Aeroflot/767,

Lufthansa/747), I even found the legroom to be a bit more than I was used to.
The service was very friendly (although I didn't use my german; the attendant approached me in english from the start and I

stuck to that) and the food was the usual you get in economy class with any other company plus some of the famous swiss

I have to mention here they even granted my request for a special meal although I emailed only about 12 hours before the

flight (the website mentions such requests have to be made at least 48 hours in advance).
On the return flight (seat 23J) I even went to the galley and was allowed to get extra food and drinks to my liking.
