Reply To: Seattle to Tel Aviv via London on business class – need suggestions!

I’m not too keen on Turkish

It’s worth remembering that flights from Istanbul to London fall under the UK electronics ban.

Just an off the wall suggestion, have you considered Air Canada via Toronto? Not a bad business class and Pearson is an easy transfer airport – much better than LHR.

I haven’t flown Swiss on this route and it’s been a few years since I’ve flown Swiss long haul, but I did like the lie flat seats on the A330, which were the same as installed on the BA mid haul A321 (ex bmi). Service was always top class. ZRH is an easy transfer, too.

Edited to add: The European airlines narrow bodies are not necessarily the same across the fleets. Iberia have a mid-haul sub fleet that features 2×2 deep recliners (quite adequate for a 5 hour flight, IMO).
