    Received notifications today that there were two changes to our upcoming RTW trip. One of which is our LX87 flight YUL-ZRH for next week. Originally the flight was scheduled on the 333 with the new F. Now it has been changed to a 343 with the old F. My only three previous flights with LX F have all been onboard the 333 with the new F. So I have never had any experiences with the old F seat and am curious as what inferiority should I expect with the old F seat compared to the new F.

    Needless to say, my wife is a little disappointed of the equipment change but still looking forward to it as it will be her first ever taste with LX F since I have told her many great things about LX F (especially the service and meals) judging from my experiences. As for me since I have three flights under my belt that were operated by the new F seat in the past, I can minimise the disappointment by telling myself that at least I've done the new product.

    It's actually better for dining together. Where it lacks is the IFE- no big screen, just a smallish screen in the arm.

    So some reports indicate that the old F is actually more spacious and has more storage space where it just looks older with an inferior design appearance and a smaller screen.
    You are reffering to the old F, correct? :) Just want to make sure.

    Anyways I appreciate all your feedbacks. Thank you very much.

    Yes, Old LX F has a better table/ottoman for dining together.

    I just flew LX161 NRT-ZRH in F yesterday, the seat was excellent for Dining & Sleeping as well, it was on the A343 Old Product and today I'm flying LX64 ZRH-MIA on the A333 with the New Product so I will report back here and share photos for you.​

    I prefer the OLD LX F. It is more comfortable.

    I have a question: All the 343's have been retrofitted with the new Business Class but not with the new F ?

    Exactly: the old F was deemed "good enough" by Swiss.

    Any plans on introducing the new F on the 343's?

    Swiss has said they do not have any plans to introduce new F on the 343s.
