777 Swiss Wayward stairs punctured wing on SWISS Boeing 777-300 VideoFabulous views: new SWISS Boeing 777 above the Alps - SWISS
The mobile stairs are on wheels, and a braking system is standard to hold them in place. The aircraft was parked when the incident occurred.
In the absence of typhoon grade winds, one likely cause is that the brakes were not applied or not applied properly.

This is the worst economy class I've experienced so far However, I am only 5'2". Anyone tall or heavy would be less comfortable.
Warning if your tray table is open and you have a full glass on it. If the person in front of you reclines their seat, chances are they will knock over your drink.
I was on night flight to BKK. There is nothing to complain. Even if you make fool use of your hand luggage you can't fill all the compartment around the seat.
Only problem came with my stupidity. I dropped my MP3-player so it fall in the mechanics of the seat. In BKK they called a mechanic to get it out.
The seat is actually so confortable that I think the flight to BKK is to short so you could sleep longer. Plenty of room even behind window seat , good recline with nobody complaining, 2 full windows to look outside.
I would never choose any other seat in LX Economy! No idea why still marked as bad seats. They should actually be green. No problem with people going to the washroom at all.
It's not that bad. Even reclined somewhat, I didn't intrude on the passenger behind me. It does require you to get out of your seat, so the middle and window seat passengers can get out.
Again - not too bad, since you want to get up and stretch your legs. Seat pitch is good and the seat width is acceptable. I had a taller guy sit in the middle seat with no problem.
The lavatory line does extend up to my row. I would choose Swiss again over the current British and Lufthansa business.
The seat was very comfortable for sitting and has a large footwell for sleeping. There is not good sleep leg support I put the blanket under my knees and sleep elbow space is limited.
The temperature is warm I was OK in shorts -- Zurich airport was uncomfortably hot. Entertainment has a responsive touch screen but limited programming.
There was no flight camera. The window seats are OK for couples: there is a divider that requires leaning forward for talking -- I had a better view of the person across the aisle.
Seat 50J doesn'v have in-arm tables but a normal table that slides to the side. Thus, the comment that the armrest is immovable and reducing with is not accurate, it's actually very OK.
Same applies I guess for 50A, B and K accordingly. The two seats in the very back are regular, decent economy class seats. They don't recline further than other seats but also not less.
The restroom behind is not really a problem because they are accessible from the emergency exit galley only so people don't actually stand in front of the two seats.
There is a little more leg room due to the concaved shape of the plane. You also have a little more room on each side of the seats for the same reason.
I'd fly there again if I can't get business class. I travelled with 5 from Zurich to BKK. I expected a terrible flight, also based on some of the reviews here.
In all honesty I had a decent flight. Yes, the seating is cramped, but what can you expect from an airline that still needs to make money.
If you want room, book business class and don't complain. Because Swiss makes up for seating with fabulous entertainment system, efficient crew, lots of good food and a bar where you can grab refreshments throughout the flight.
For my children they went the extra mile with candy and some surprises. Seating is a joke Swiss wants to be modern with a plane that otehrs have in service over 10 years.
The layout , modern design is horrible , and swiss is more expensive.. Emirate , Ehtihad , Sing , Cathay are much better.
Given the notorious reputation for a lousy economy class, I bit the bullet and paid for an upgrade to business class.
As other reviewers have noted, the business class on this aircraft is a mixed bag. Some I definitely would not have wanted 2 per window!
I had the same space in one seat as the people behind me had crammed into two seats. This is the bulkhead seat with tons of leg room and a cabinet on each side.
The bathroom use was not an issue at all because you have a cabinet seperating you from the aisle. I would steer clear of the aisle seats that only have a small arm rest, or that share a table.
If you can get this seat, grab it! I will never again fly Swiss ER. It was one of the worst experiences with Swiss ever.
The seating leaves no space in corridors, the legroom is so poor i'm 1. A and K jammed against sidewall of airplane so little shoulder room. Seat very hard.
I flew with my wife next to me, assuming we could see each other, talk to each other. No way. The new seat configuration in BUS has a large partition between the seats, so can't even ser each other!
Might as well book two separate single seats which have much more stirage space. The configuration of this aircraft is the worst I have seen, Seats are too small and no legroom whatso ever.
The corridors are so narrow that the cart has difficulty to pass without seating passengers leaning away.
I will take any day Airbus. I will never fly again swiss on a long haul Beoing ER. The bathrooms in the back of the plane and not used much and somewhat hidden.
Had very little bathroom traffic to endure. The room for feet is actually better because there is a 2 seat space for your feet. On of the best seats on the airplane.
On my way out I flew in 15k which already was a great seat. But you have even more legroom. The toilet is not disturbing at all since you have not just an armrest to the aile.
Best business experience so far. Finally I had enough space for my feet. I don't understand why people write that 12K is a bad seat.
It's very good, otherwise than written it has a window and most of all it's a business class seat where you are on your own.
So you have plenty of space to place your items, laying down flat is comfortable, you can sleep well, also laying in different positions for watching films on the big screen is comfortable.
Staff was very friendly. Only complaint: If you rest your arms on the side be careful to not move the seats with the buttons.
In bref: I liked this business class seat and the service of Swiss very much. I'm 5"11 tall and had no problems. The entire business section seems claustrophobic and out dated.
Big boxy seats and dividers hem you in from all sides. To get into flat seat mode, you sink down so low that it feels as though you are in a motorcycle sidecar with a blanket over your head.
I am 5'10", and flat arrangement was very uncomfortable. Food was not worth eating. Service was excellent and courteous.
Find some other business class on a different jet. Pros: lots of stowage available and nice big screen, also no need to climb over someone else to get out of the seat.
Cons: in bed configuration, the seat felt very narrow. Very uncomfortable for a 12 hr flight. I am 5'10 and had my knees against the seat in front.
Difficult to get comfy to sleep. Entertainment ok, good touchscreen system, only spoiled by random reminders that we were going into night configuration and shouldn't use phones??
Evening meal good, breakfast poor. Would be nice if Swiss treated their economy customers with some respect, maybe their executives should try a 12 hour economy seat once in a while.
I habe little choice in the flights that are booked for me, if you have a choice there are better options. I am flying with my dog, and they gave me seat 36K, it is an assigned "dog in cabin" seat.
This means I will have to stow my dog in his carrier under the seat in front of me. So if you have seat 35K, there may be a small dog under your seat.
Could be a concern for people with severe allergies. Boy did I learn a lot about travelling with a dog thes last few days!
The seats are an example of poor industrial design. Between the seats there is a box containing the tray tables and making the space feel very claustraphobic , the seat controls are placed perfectly for one's elbow to continually move the seat position, worst of all good in flat bed configuration but impossible to get comfortable positions otherwise.
Not as good as the old seats on the A and a generation behind everyone else's seats. Getting out of 8A was terrible as the space was not enough.
For the return flight we have obtained seats in the middle, which although they have all the same faults both of us can reach the aisle without a requirement to be an acrobat.
The worst Business Class seat I have sat in for such a long haul journey. Not only is there no window, as there is a person next to you you have to climb over them to get out.
Plus your neighbour shares the same table for drinks etc. Definitely not worth the money. The As and As are far superior.
Legs also restricted a bit for the same reason. Do not book if you're over 1. Horrible layout.. Headphone socket upside down.
Hosties were indifferent and service generally chaotic and unprofessional. If you can get it, seat 4A is definately the best Business Class seat on the plane.
Not only does the feet cubby not end up in tight spot, it is fully open and the width of the seat. I could not actually touch the end, most of my 6'4" body could have fit into the hole for the legs.
There is an insane amount of space. Business class seat was the most uncomfortable I ever encountered. Flight attendant actually told me I had already had my bowl of nuts and could not have any more when I asked for them.
But the disappointment was very big. Due to an emergency stop-over medical reasons in Baku the flight was finally delayed by almost 6 hours. To sit in this cramped and hard seat for about 16 hours was a sheer horror.
Otherwise they will lose customers to other more competitive airlines, such as Lufthansa, Thai, Singapore or Cathay. Wow, what a disappointment. Just be aware that if you've chosen an aisle seat you will be bumped all throughout the flight.
The aisle is just to narrow for the crew and the passangers. I'm 90kg, and this layout of is, to my opinion, not suitable. Additionally, the service was rushed and heavy handed.
Well, I'll be going back to Lufthansa. Their A Economy setup is much more comfortable. To flight in this narrow seat for 12 hours is a trip to the hell, and the use it on all long hole flight to Asia Singapore, Bangkok, HKK..
I do not know how the management of a "premium" Airline can order a cabin configuration like this. From Zürich to Asia you have a lot of other options.
To Hong Kong for example you can choose Cathay Pacific. Bye Bye Swiss. This is too much now Obstructed legroom. However the Swiss managed to shoehorn in way too many people on this Swiss missed the mark for passenger comfort.
I was glad to get off the plane after 70 minutes. Armrests are small and too low. Seat too narrow in width.
This ECO-Seating is definitively sub-standard and should be avoided by all means. Welcome to Swiss-Air Boing means welcome to hell for people above 1,80m.
For my flight back 13 hours, I payed. Now I have to to with pain in my knees and muscles of legs and bag. I call that unpunished criminal assault.
This seat should be marked in red, like 23 A-K. On top, people will come and stand in that area, often stepping on your feet I was awaken twice because of that.
Although it reclines quite well, the seat is hard like a stone. The curve shape of the cabin takes away some room. I am not giant cm x 72kg , but I had to try sleep twisted so to avoid the shoulders of me neighbor and the wall of the cabin.
Overall, terrible experience. The crew was very young and inexpert aside from wearing their uniforms rather free-style, they lacked coordination and timing, even the bread was cold like a rock.
I would find no difference between low cost carriers such as Norwegian and LX. It is even more disturbing as LX Business and First class are really top, while Y class is just at the level of low cost carriers.
I'd rather stick with LH or SQ. I had plenty of time to get my seat in advance and wasnt aware of this site.
On flight out flight 41 lax-zrh was in seat 32A was fine. Im a pretty big guy 6'1" and found the legroom and seat comfort adequate. Little noisy but to be expected behind the engines.
My flight back I wanted to stretch and have a window seat so chose 23A.. The seat tray as mentioned makes the seat narrower.
Whats not told is the emergency door frame impinges your leg room even more by about 4". Also mentioned here no window there.
Also not menrioned is the constant sub arctic cold air blowing from the doorframe freezing both your legs and feet. I fly many many miles a year and this made even me feel chlostrphobic.
Bottom line, avoid these seats at all costs. These seats 23A and 23K should be avoided at all costs and shouldnt be seats there in the first place.
This plane does not have economy plus seats, so all economy seats are the same in terms of size and legroom except exit row. This aisle seat is in the front part of the economy section, but as uncomfortable and cramp as the seats farther back.
I will try hard to avoid flying with Swiss on this plane in the future. This was the worst seat on any long flight I've taken I fly cross atlantic times every year.
The cushion was hard, legroom was terrible I'm 5'3" woman , and aisle was so narrow no one, including flight attendants, could walk down the aisle without touching you.
The seating in middle row is extremely uncomfortable. The metal brackets that hold the seats to the floor are placed out of line with the seats, and result in compromised leg space - leg space that is extremely tight to begin with - with the added problem of having only 3 spaces to stow away small luggage for 4 passengers.
This occurs on every single row of middle seats D, E, F, G. Clearly the airplane was not designed to seat 10 abreast.
I choose row 50 and reserved a seat well in advance. This worked perfect. I would never ever book a 3-seat combination for us as a couple, especially not for a combination as Swiss now offers.
People do not bump into 50B, due to protection from row Seats itself are really cramped wide , footroom is similar to old seating.
However the whole flight is cramped feeling. If I cannot get row 50 either side I will use any other airline in future. I got shocked when I saw their new economy cabin and decided to use miles to upgrade to business class rather than to spend 13 hours in the new economy class.
It took me 65 LH miles and a week later they confirmed I was upgraded. What a fab experience it was! The best seats I've ever seen.
Twin C seats are also good but in a throne seat you can feel like in first class. Most other airlines' biz products feel like economy compared to the Swiss new planes.
That of course applies if you can get a "throne" seat. Oh yes, the food was also really good but service was pretty mediocre. This configuration with 10 seats in Y-Class is extremely tight.
Luckily my flight was only a short flight, but I felt already very uncomfortable. Even being a normal sized person it is absolutely impossible to seat normally or in any way comfortable.
Sidewards you permanently touch shoulder of your neighbor and no idea how they measure legroom with 32 inch I cannot imagine sitting for a long-range flight in such a position.
Very sad as this is in no way Swiss Quality or premium airlines style. Please, be aware that in the economy class there is no V adapter.
There is only a USB port charger located on the screen of the entertainment system. So, it is not possible to charge a laptop or any other equipment requiering V.
Even though a configuration in Y surprisingly comfortable. Nice size of Screen. No boxes anymore below the seats like the A have.
Both flights were not full - nice to have an empty seat in the middle! Was the worst flight of my life. The seats are ridiculously small in this configuration with barely any room in the aisle.
I'm not a big guy but even I had to walk down sideways to not slam into people. All 3 of us on my row boarded about midway through the boarding, and by that time our storage locker had been filled already with bags, and every locker in the back cabin was filled, so we had to JAM our bags under the seats in front, making it impossible to even stretch our legs out for the whole trip.
Sad to see Swiss go from such a comfortable A configuration to this sardine-like monster that Boeing have furnished.
Will be flying this route via the middle east on the more comfy carriers from now, sorry Swiss. Horrible Leg space, very unconfrotable, probably one of the worst expierience i have made in Business Class.
A shame this is their Flagship. You cant move the legs when you in bed position. On our flight we were exposed to screaming babies for most of the 12 hour flight.
The double seats offer even less space than the single seats. Avoid the Swiss On the return flight in row 12 the cabin crew was busy with accompanying family members and friends; the rest of the passengers were hardly noticed - poor service.
It's shame for Swiss have this kind of configuration. Economy seats are very narrow, seems that passenger are seated one over the other!!
The is not enough space for the hand luggage store, people "fight" to place their things and the flight attendants are not helping.
This cause waste of time boarding the passengers!! Try to avoid to flight on this !! Swiss - is ONLY the name on the outside of this aircraft!
Seat and seating in economy definitely not suited for long distance flights. Besides the cramped position due to proximity to the wall and the protruding door, there is very cold air coming from the door flowing over your legs.
There were about 20 new release films to chose from. Perhaps my favorite feature is that you can slide your finger across the timeline to jump ahead in a movie, letting you pick up where you left off on a previous flight.
I recommend bringing your own. Now, on to the good stuff! A few moments later, I was offered a menu. For my starter, I selected the Fera trout, which was served with mixed veggies, my choice of bread I went for an olive roll and a small green salad.
Then, for my main course, I selected the beef tenderloin with herb crust, red wine sauce, potato gratin and spring vegetables. I very much enjoyed the cheese, though I was beginning to feel pretty full at this point.
After the cheese course, a flight attendant came by with a selection of delicious chocolates, as is the norm on Swiss.
Then, later in the flight I asked for some tea and a Diet Coke. Meanwhile, prior to landing I was served a salad with radish, a bowl of fruit salad, bruschetta and a roll.
