If flying from London to Zürich w/Swiss, compare the fare to Basel, via Zürich. It is quite often significantly less and one can just skip the included train transfer either direction. Its the markets, not the distances
Have you done this, though?

Flying London-Zurich-Basel would work if you left the flight at the Zurich stopover, provided you told them to take off your bags (or just had cabin baggage) but the return flight to London wouldn't work because you'd have to check in at Basel airport, i.e. you can't join the flight at the Zurich stopover.
