Hi leslietravel, welcome to MySwissAlps!
So if I understand you correctly, you are considering to spend 4 days in Paris instead of 5, and spend the last day in Switzerland before going to Brussels?
To be honest, that does not sound like a good idea to me. I would say you need at least two full days in Switzerland to make it worth it.
Flying from Paris to Switzerland is an option, but the train is comfortable. It's quicker than flying actually: only 3 hours from Paris to Basel on the border. By plane, you would have to travel to the airport in Paris, check in luggage, wait, fly, collect luggage and take a transfer to town. The train is much easier and eco-friendlier too. Please see myswissalps.com/ traintickets/ france for more information.
Can you spend more time in Switzerland somehow? Two days in Lucerne would be worth it, for example.
