SWISS has launched a new business class sale. The standout fare is from Heathrow to Delhi, priced at £1183 return.
Other offers which are decent but not life changing include:
- Cairo £1079
- Dubai £1630
- Johannesburg £2003
- Tokyo £2140
You can fly from regional airports from a premium, eg Birmingham to Delhi is £1390 return (Cairo is cheaper at £863 return). The booking and travel dates are not clear but it seems to be valid for trips from early June.
SWISS is a Star Alliance member so you would be crediting to Miles & More or the scheme of another Star airline. The SWISS business class seat is well regarded, see the photo below, as are the lounges in Zurich. There are plenty of solo seats in the rows by the windows.

Your best option to maximise your miles when paying is American Express Preferred Rewards Gold. This offers double points – 2 per £1 – when you when you book flight tickets directly with an airline. Our review of Amex Gold is here.
