Flying SWISS from Zurich? Then why not have your bags conveniently collected for you from your home or your hotel? SWISS has teamed up with Swissport to offer this new service – which is available immediately – to its customers in Switzerland. Just hand over your bags at your home or hotel and collect them again at your final air destination!
Your baggage will be collected from your home or hotel by a transport company on our behalf.
Our baggage pick-up service is only available to customers travelling on a SWISS flight from Zurich which is operated by SWISS (i.e. it is not available for codeshare flights operated by the partner airline).
The service must be booked at least 48 hours before departure.
You do not have to be personally present when your baggage is collected. But the relevant travel documents (including passport or identification card) will need to be shown to the person(s) doing so.
The rates specified below are for up to two pieces of baggage. Each additional piece will be subject to a CHF 15 surcharge.
Payment can be made by credit card (VISA or Mastercard).
The usual provisions regarding free baggage allowance and excess baggage apply.
Baggage will be weighed at the airport. If applicable, any excess baggage fees must be paid at the regular excess baggage counter. Passengers will be informed by text message or contacted by telephone regarding any payment required on their arrival at airport.
Individual bags weighing more than 32 kilos cannot be accepted.
For departures between 06:00 and 16:00, the baggage will be collected between 09:00 and 21:00 the previous day.
For departures between 16:00 and 23:00, the baggage will be collected between 07:00 and 18:00 on the day of departure.

And no mention of cows or alphorn sounds on the gadgetbahn? The people in the video are shuttled in a van. .
if you are hon circle or first the vip service vans or cars are used. For planes that are on the remote stands business class passengers use the business shuttle van (those without attached docking gates)
The fare increase which was previously announced for flights to North America with effect from 4 September will now not take place. This is for technical reasons. We will inform you as quickly as possible of any further developments.

Good deals, are you kidding ? Maybe value wise, I don't know. But you can easily find a flight to San Francisco or Los Angeles with an American carrier for 700 to 800 bucks return.
Easily? Hmm...maybe from SFO or LAX, but from CH, those fares are not easy to find most of the year. Unless you have a secret source? I do agree that those fares posted by Swiss are high, but they have the only non-stops to California.

I always go to Skyscanner or Ebookers for this type of thing. The cheapest airline seems to change all the time. I avoid going to airlines directly for general information, although I may go there to book once I've decided what I want.
When it comes to connecting flights, it can also make a big difference where you change. Some hubs are more pleasant than others. I don't necessarily see non-stop long-haul flights as a plus, you just have to avoid the nasty airports.
