what's the spotting potential like at Zurich?
I was thinking of spending a day there but will be on foot so was thinking of staying around the terminal.
I heard that there is a good platform at the airport. Is this still open post 9/11?
Also what do you think would be the best / most entertaining way of getting there from MAN?
Thanks in advance for any help.

Well that's definitely on my "To go to" list . I want to travel the world now I've got my own passport. Fares are a bit high though. Can't find anyone that goes direct to ZRH from EMA. MAN would be my second choice but BA and LX fares are pretty high. BA are even charging £160 from LHR!

Thanks for the tip, but I managed to get the Renaissance (which is 5 star) for only GBP 55.
While we are on the subject of spotting at European airports, does anyone know whether I will have time to get to the spotting terrace at Frankfurt?
I Arrive at terminal 1 and have around 2hrs to spare.
Any advice and I would be grateful.

I would recommend the Fly Away Hotel in Kloten.
Stayed there twice, nice rooms, good food and nice looking lady reception staff
Free bus to and from the terminal. I 've also got the name and telephone number of a taxi service who, if required, will drop you off wherever you are around the perimeter of the airport and will pick you up wherever again at what time you agree. Really nice guy also. Taxi's are expensive though so plan into your budget.
