On a Swiss flight from Split (SPU) to Zurich (ZRH) this afternoon something rather odd happened.
Passengers boarding the plane with seats assigned in rows 18-23 found that the seats didn't actually exist. The row numbers jumped straight from 17 to 24.
Spotting the chaos in the middle of the cabin as passengers searched in vain for the non-existent seats, the crew apologised and told people to sit anywhere. Luckily the plane wasn't full and everyone settled down.
My journey continued from Zurich to London LHR on an identical Swiss A320. There were no problems with seat allocation, but again, I noticed that the row numbers mysteriously jumped straight from 17 to 24.
Can anyone explain this odd situation? Is it unique to Swiss? I've Googled, and come up with nothing.
