comment Do I need an airport transit visa through Switzerland if I have a Schengen visa?
The situation is the same as travel.stackexchange.com/questions/14692/… (which should have been picked as a duplicate). Your Schengen visa is good for entering Schengen at any place, including Switzerland on your way to Spain and back.

It's better to have a more specific question. The original version didn't mention that this was for air travel.

comment Leaving Schengen region to reset 90 days
@Flimzy The rules are in months rather than days, I don't know how that's interpreted. Assuming it was 90 days in 180 days, then in your scenario, you would only be allowed 1 day. You'd then have to spend one day outside, and you could come back for 89 more days after that.

comment Is the visa-free entry to Schengen region multiple entry or single entry?
This doesn't look right: you don't have to leave Schengen on day 180 if you haven't used your 90 days. For example, if you visit Schengen on January 1st just for the day, then come back on June 29, you don't have to leave on June 30, you can stay for three months minus one day. (The rules say “three months” and “half-year”, not “90 days” and “180 days”, by the way).

@gerrit This question is about international shipping while traveling. That makes it on-topic for both travel.se and post.se.

@OperationNewDay I had already cited that same article in my answer, and I provide a translation. It doesn't mean what you wrote.

comment Are there subcategories of seats even within economy class?
@jpatokal I don't know whether this is the case for the asker, but premium economy does fall into different fare classes, at least with some airlines.

@uncovery It's not just Cathay, it's pretty common across the world and for all distance ranges.
