The mobile stairs are on wheels, and a braking system is standard to hold them in place. The aircraft was parked when the incident occurred. In the absence of typhoon grade winds, one likely cause is that the brakes were not applied or not applied properly.

It was literally horrible. It started out OK, the ticketing agent was amazing, said there was a decent chance of nobody in the middle seat.
Yea right. They squeezed everyone on the plane and the person sitting next to me was very kind but a Swiss air non-revenue flyer.
Very nice person, but had huge biceps. Literally thought I would prefer to fly in the lavatory seat rather than this. I have another Swiss flight coming up that I am strongly considering cancelling.
I think I just would rather not fly rather than get squeezed into the cabin in economy. This is the worsest plane from swiss.
There is no space to sit normal always contact with ur neighbours, I miss the old on this route, you can better choose lufthansa on this route with airbus much more comfort.
Boeing economy: Worst cabin ever! Whichever seat you are on, in this case 23A without window but with extra leg room, you will always be squished between passengers.
Seat is narrower than those of any metro around the world. I have flown this airplane on 3 occasions as no other option was available, I constantly touched my neighbors with my shoulders on all 3 flights, and I am a skinny cm man.
Only book flights on this airplane if longhaul relative comfort is not an issue for you. Armrests at seats number 49H, 49K, 49J are locked and can not be folded back!
That was a nightmare to get off the seat and try to squeeze between seat in front of us and armrest!
No one of flight attendants could help and unlock the armrest! That was really bad service and most frustrating flight in my experience! In the small forward Business cabin behind First.
Quiet and comfortable, with easy access to the washrooms. Far superior to the huge and crowded main cabin. Wonderful crew.
Excellent food and drinks. Traveld to SFO from Zurich and return. But this aircrft is so narrow and the seats were as if they are children's seat so narrow for even for a small person like me it was hell.
I spent Christmas inSFO with a back problem. The two guys in front were so inconsiderate, , regardless of the extra leg room they had in front they reclined their seats to a maximum.
It was suffocating. The worst experience in my 32 years of traval. This is actually quite a bad seat! There is no extra legrrom because the door has a protruding bulge emergency slide?
The only way to stretch one's legs is to go towards the legspace of the middle seat. Seats are very narrow, I fly internationally a lot and this is by far the worst plane, very narrow and cramped.
The hallways are also narrower than usual and the crew didn't really bother to pay attention not to bump into you. Absolutely horrible.
Never again long haul on this cramped 77W. A very sub par product. This was a horrible experience. The plane was so narrow, it was impossible to get up and walk.
I ended up with a vein thrombosis, something I've never had in my life and I fly long distances frequently. The seats were cramped as well and I'm a person of normal weight.
Add to this, very poor quality food. I won't be flying Swiss again. Absolutely narrow and horrible.
From BKK to Zürich, 12 hours, a trip to hell. They treat Eco passengers like cows. And they don't offer a Premium Economy like other Airlines.
The only possibility is to buy a ticket for the very averaged and overpriced business class, it's around times more expensive than an Eco ticket.
SWISS never again! Unless you can afford business class or up, get ready for a horrible experience. This was an The isle seat which I paid extra for in the preferred section is very narrow, my neighbor had his elbow in my side the entire time.
And when the person in front of you pushes back his seat, there is hardly any room to breath, let alone to read or use your computer.
Other passengers were also complaining. B of Swiss is very very bad, the seats are too small, too close and the density of the cabin is horrible with this configuration of 3 4 3.
I was used to fly always with swiss for a few year, usually in A or A, and i was always satisfy untill I test this brand new I regret my choice, it is not the same anymore, more seat, less confort, swiss is not the same as before Swiss, in or , ok for sure!
Try to book row 51, seat A, B, J, or K!! This is the best experience I've had on a transatlantic flight -- the rest of the economy cabin is extremely tight so do yourself a favor and book one of these seats!
Terrible, absolutely terrible. Although this seat has enough legroom and I paid dearly for it! And the seat like the others is so narrow that you are in a fight for shoulder space with your neighbor on the right while constantly being hit on the left by passengers or crew trying to find a way along the ultra-narrow aisle.
I think that direct long-haul flights on Swiss are overrated and in the future will prefer a stopover just to avoid these absolutely awful Swiss s!
My husband 1. I was worried about all the bad comments about the seats. I was surprised that the legroom was spacious enough. It is true that the seats are narrow but it was ok.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. They served drinks regularly and we even had Mövenpick icecream, which I never had before on a flight.
All together I must say that the flight was much better than expected! Economy seats are so narrow that an average European person will be extremely uncomfortable on long flights.
The aisle seat have slight narrower legroom due to the placement of the seat anchor struts. I could not find a comfortable sleep position and my behind was sore after the flight.
The aisle is so narrow that one is constantly brushed by other passenger going to the toilet or the FA during meal service and this makes it even more difficult to sleep.
Going to avoid this in the future. I agree with other reviewers of this particular row that this was one of the better seats in the economy cabin.
Not only do you only have one only one person to climb over to go to the lavatory, you also get a substantial empty space between your seat and the wall.
This space was large enough to store a carry-on bag, as well as my shoes freeing up the space under the seat in front of me for stretching out my legs.
It also negates the lack of shoulder room caused by the narrow configuration. Finally, even though there is a bulkhead behind you, it does not seem to impede recline as the recline was actually very good and I did not have to worry about taking someone else's space doing so.
As others said, the door to the lavatory is on the opposite side of the bulkhead so there wasn't much bothersome traffic either.
All-in-all, I was very happy with my cozy little corner of the cabin, although I'm sure sitting in any of the middle seats anywhere else would be miserable.
I'd definitely choose this seat again if faced with a similar configuration. As for the seats in general, although I abhor the layout, I have to give Swiss credit for being generous with the legroom and seat padding.
Not a good seat as the passenger sitting on the window seat 11K has to climb over you to reach the corridor. Also, no window.
This is the WORSE configuration on a seats are small, legroom is minimal, comfort is the worse ever experienced.
It is sad cause I flew with Swiss A and was very nice in the past. But if you have to do a long-haul flight, avoid Swiss as much as you can.
The plane is nice cause it is new, but this does not really count when you feel squeezed in a packed plane with less than average services.
Hated my seat. If you look closely, you will see that the center seats and single side seats all have 1 or 2 tables per seat.
Side double seats have one table to share. Very, very cramped. They should charge less for the side doubles I had this seat for the 12 hour flight from Hong Kong to Zurich.
The seat is narrow and located where the seat configuration changes from to and the aisle narrows. I was hit on the shoulder by flight attendants as they walked past and was hit by what seemed to be every other catering trolley coming from the rear galley.
Most uncomfortable! I suspect that 49G would have similar problems. Terrible seat. Never will ride Swiss again in economy, and likeley never again in any class.
Could not open computer to use when 23A had seat back. Knees rubbed against seat back. Leg room too small. When 23A seat was back distance of my face to back of the seat screen was 11 inches.
Seats are too narrow, as are the aisles. While there is pretty good leg room, knees rub against the seatback in front, and shoulders rub against the passenger to the right or left.
Service was mediocre, and food was downright awful, much worse than on Lufthansa. One redeeming feature is that the Zurich Airport is smaller and more user-friendly than Munich and especially Frankfurt, and easier to make connections.
The entertainment screens are large and well-designed, and the 3D navigation tracking system helps keep your mind off of the negatives of the seats.
Although the seats appear old and not comfortable. The flight was full and cramped with the configuration in economy class. Use another airline such as Lufthansa for better seats.
It is located at the bulkhead between business class and first class. This is only a wall, there are no lavatories, crew storage, or kitchen areas.
There are compartments to store items so you don't have to put everything overhead during taxi, takeoff, and landing.
There was almost no foot traffic throughout the flight. My wife and I traveled together. She was in 4G. Sitting in the middle seats worked very nicely for a couple.
One of my favorite business class seats. The food was adequate, but leaves a lot to be desired when compared to other European carriers.
No power at seat. Will avoid economy travel on this airline on the future. You have to use the headphones provided by the airline as the entertainment system only accepts 2 prong jacks.
Even the Bose adapter didn't fit, go figure?!? Lots of movie and TV show options, and the music was decent. I loved the air map feature and it's different choices.
The window seat occupant is basically trapped if the aisle seat person is reclined or lies flat. The crew were excellent, very attentive, friendly, and helpful in every way.
On this aircraft there are two lavatories on one side, choose that side it makes a difference. Pillow and blanket were very good.
All in all time flew by. Not the best business class but it's very good and the crew make it great. This is a bad seat for real. Less leg room, because the these seats are not aligned with the ones in front of them 50J has less leg room than 50K.
When the person in front reclines, you'll have the monitor in your face. More room for hand luggage though.
These seats 51 A-B do recline, and there is noone behind that you have to consider. Some extra space on the side as well, as there are only 2 seats here.
Better than row 50, which is misaligned and has less leg room. Good seats! Seat on row 36 cannot recline.
This is true for all the seats with a wall behind them. Less width and more expensive! Swiss packs 10 seats in the width while other companies only have 9 for the same economy class but cheaper Not only are you cramped in your seat but the passage is so narrow that you always bump into somebody's leg, shoulder or elbow when you walk.
Only positive is leg room below the seat, although distance to screen becomes minimal if the passenger in front reclines fully.
SIN - ZUR 14K didn't find the misalignment of the window too much of an issue being a night flight but even a day time flight you just need to lean forward slightly.
Food and cabin crew were spot on,1 young man came and spoke to my wife and I for quite some time,purser came through the cabin with 2 boxes of chocolates handing them out and my wife jokingly said if you have 1 spare she'd have 1,a few minutes later he brought her a large box of chocolates,big thankQ.
First impression the is good but doesn't seem as wide as you think once seated, the decor is very 'business' like as in an office appearance, plenty of adjustment with a massage mode,tv is angled downwards possibly for watching when laid down.
TV had no sound at first and then a male staff member sorted it, apparently there's a switch underneath that the cleaners catch when doing there job.
Rest of the staff were spot on and the grub was good, especially the beef main course. There was definitely more leg room for this bulkhead seat but the width was confining and uncomfortable when seated between two broad men.
On december 20 we flew from Miami to Zurich. Economy section totally full. I was seated in the middle seat as I exchanged my corridor seat with another passenger to stay seated near my husband.
This was the most awful trip I had ever taken in my life, thanks to Swiss squeezing 10 seats when there used to be 8.
I had cramps in my legs, the passenger in front of me reclined his seat from the beginning to the end.
Trying to get out of my seat was a very difficult task, as well as eating as there was no space at all. Moreover, the entertainmbet screen did not work.
Flight attentands waited three hours before comimg to see what was wrong and they were not able to fix it. It is disgrasful for Swiss to have done this.
Never again I will fly with you SwissAir! For people reading: spend a couple hundreds more dollars and fly Lufthans Premium Economy, a wonderful experience.
And Lufthansa flight attendants so much nicer and responding to passengers's calls. The seat seems to be made from air cushions, which in my case were either very hard or a too soft, like a gel seat.
The flight attendants were friendly, the food below average, the wines excellent on my flight from LAX-Zurich. Seats 7D and even more 7G are bad seats compared to what the cabin has to offer.
The room for feed is dramatically smaller and 7G has moreover les rest for the arms. Very narrow. A cheap charter feeling. Not adapted for a premium Airline.
I will avoid in the future this plane. Yes, the seats in 50 are misaligned compared to The real pain for 50B is that while it has two monitor screens even behind 49B and 49C both screens are so shifted to the side that either your neighbour on 50A gets to watch what you're watching or the rearward audience can share your viewing preference.
I disagree however with the bad comments around legroom. I flew in and out on 50B and 50A 10h plus in either and found more space to tuck my feet under.
You just have the seat struts in front in the middle. This comment is also valid for 50J. Be aware that Swiss charges extra for the single window seats.
They should be marked 'premium' and that in Business class!! Seat reclines than any other seat, which is great. It also has a little space next to the seat to store covers and stuff like that.
But for that reason, there is a gap between Window and seat. If you want to have a decent flight experience, I strongly advise against flying Swiss The seats are uncomfortable.
I'm an average sized guy, but my shoulders touched my neighbours shoulders. This is the worst economy class I've experienced so far However, I am only 5'2".
Anyone tall or heavy would be less comfortable. Warning if your tray table is open and you have a full glass on it. If the person in front of you reclines their seat, chances are they will knock over your drink.
I was on night flight to BKK. There is nothing to complain. Even if you make fool use of your hand luggage you can't fill all the compartment around the seat.
Only problem came with my stupidity. I dropped my MP3-player so it fall in the mechanics of the seat. In BKK they called a mechanic to get it out.
The seat is actually so confortable that I think the flight to BKK is to short so you could sleep longer. Plenty of room even behind window seat , good recline with nobody complaining, 2 full windows to look outside.
I would never choose any other seat in LX Economy! No idea why still marked as bad seats. They should actually be green.
No problem with people going to the washroom at all. It's not that bad. Even reclined somewhat, I didn't intrude on the passenger behind me.
It does require you to get out of your seat, so the middle and window seat passengers can get out. Again - not too bad, since you want to get up and stretch your legs.
Seat pitch is good and the seat width is acceptable. I had a taller guy sit in the middle seat with no problem. The lavatory line does extend up to my row.
I would choose Swiss again over the current British and Lufthansa business. The seat was very comfortable for sitting and has a large footwell for sleeping.
There is not good sleep leg support I put the blanket under my knees and sleep elbow space is limited.
The temperature is warm I was OK in shorts -- Zurich airport was uncomfortably hot. Entertainment has a responsive touch screen but limited programming.
There was no flight camera. The window seats are OK for couples: there is a divider that requires leaning forward for talking -- I had a better view of the person across the aisle.
Seat 50J doesn'v have in-arm tables but a normal table that slides to the side. Thus, the comment that the armrest is immovable and reducing with is not accurate, it's actually very OK.
Same applies I guess for 50A, B and K accordingly. The two seats in the very back are regular, decent economy class seats.
They don't recline further than other seats but also not less. The restroom behind is not really a problem because they are accessible from the emergency exit galley only so people don't actually stand in front of the two seats.
There is a little more leg room due to the concaved shape of the plane. You also have a little more room on each side of the seats for the same reason.
I'd fly there again if I can't get business class. I travelled with 5 from Zurich to BKK. I expected a terrible flight, also based on some of the reviews here.
In all honesty I had a decent flight. Yes, the seating is cramped, but what can you expect from an airline that still needs to make money.
If you want room, book business class and don't complain. Because Swiss makes up for seating with fabulous entertainment system, efficient crew, lots of good food and a bar where you can grab refreshments throughout the flight.
For my children they went the extra mile with candy and some surprises. Swiss Business Class Seat As I mentioned, I opted for seat 4A, which is in the very front of the mini-cabin, located just behind first class.
This plane also offers a touchscreen remote, located under the arm rest. Along with a USB charging port and a universal power outlet. There was also a small compartment on the floor that I think is designed to store your shoes.
I opted for seat 10K, which was located near the front. Other amenities, including lotion and wipes, are available in the lavatory.
In-Flight Entertainment Each business-class seat includes a inch touchscreen display. There are also a selection of games to choose from.
You can even browse through the film selections on the remote. Food and Beverage Now, on to the good stuff!
The trout was moist and the veggies were fresh — a solid dish. Everything was flavorful and the dish was well-plated. There was also a cherry cake, which I tasted with some Port wine.
