Swiss First Class is one of the most coveted ways to fly. You get impeccably precise Swiss cabin crew, an elegant multi-course meal presentation, and a refinement that is unmistakably Swiss.
So when Swiss First Class seats are available with miles, savvy miles and points collectors will go out of their way to fly them.
It’s an unfortunate development, but to be frank Swiss First Class while nice isn’t the best way to fly in a lot of cases. And Swiss is unreasonably sensitive to the integrity of its First Class cabin. Perhaps there have been complaints, perhaps they legitimately need the capacity for paid tickets (which is dubious since their cabins so often fly with empty seats), or perhaps their top elite members were having trouble booking award seats because of all the U.S. based demand.
But there are still plenty of options for global travel comfortably with miles.
