Help! Best Routing?

    I’m flying to London for the zillionth time in March, so I’m planning on stopping over in Europe for lunch, to mix things up a bit, & try different carriers.
    What routing do you think would be better?

    EWR -> ZUR on LX in Y (330)
    Lunch in Zurich then
    ZUR -> LHR on LX in EuroBiz (C100)

    JFK -> FRA on SQ in Y (380)
    Lunch in Frankfurt then
    FRA -> LHR on LH in EuroBiz (320)

    I also carry a PriorityPass if that affects airport recommendations.

    I guess my feeling is that I’m split on whether:
    taking the CS100 and Zurich being more interesting of a day trip than Frankfurt

    Or if SQs awarded Y is worth it, and so is saving money by transferring in Frankfurt, because I hear Zurich is pricey.

    To be clear, I’ve never flown on LH, LX, or SQ, nor have I flown on the CS100.

    The US Dollar is actually stronger than the Swiss Franc at the moment so Zurich shouldn't be too pricey. I found the city center of Zurich very walkable. I've only changed planes in Frankfurt so I can't help there.
