Struth - Swiss no bar to business

Struth - would you believe!
With David Ellis

In his continuing search for the more weird, wacky and wondrous in the world of travel, David Ellis says the Swiss are not generally renowned as being amongst the world’s greatest toss-pots.

So it came as something of a surprise on a recent overseas trip to find that the longest, fully-staffed airline lounge bar world-wide is in a lounge of Swiss airlines in Zurich… it’s 40-metres long, has 30 stools at the bar, eighteen lounge chairs, and general seating for another hundred or so.

And it’s directly above another Swiss Business Class lounge with almost as many seats for those happy to serve themselves to complimentary food and drinks.

Maybe we’ll have to reconsider our understanding of Swiss drinking habits.
