2 hour connection Berlin-Zurich-SFO ?

Returning home on Swiss in mid-January, and I'm starting to second-guess the connection time in Zurich. Any comments whether 2-1/4 hours will be enough (two bags checked through, two small carry-ons) ?

2 1/4 hours is just fine at Zurich airport. Even 1 hour would be OK there.

Are you taking Swiss flights 975 and 38? It would seem as a single ticket it should be doable.

I note they have a flight with just 55 minutes offered on their website, so yours should be no real issue.

Assuming you are on one ticket, this should be fine.

I flew Berlin - Zurich - Washington a few years ago with a scheduled 1 hour connection. My flight arrived late leaving me only about 45 minutes to connect and I still made the flight. My checked bag also made the flight.

Thanks to all -- yes, it is on one ticket (975 and 38 booked using United miles.)
Guess I was getting overly concerned -- but I will keep checking the flights every month or so just to make sure there are no new glitches. Last trip with a connection had a flight cancelled and rescheduled without notification from Air France ... that took several hours to rearrange.
