Why No ZRH A.net Member Meetings?

Hi guys,
with lots of other a.net member meetings being held in the near future, I thought it would be time to discuss a possible meeting in Zurich somewhen this spring.

Although I have only been taking part in the a.net forums for one year now, we've discussed some 20 times mostly about new airlines at "our home airport".

I would be very interested in meeting some other active a.net members from Switzerland in ZRH. Any thoughts?

Best regards
Thomas

That`s a good idea. Sunday is the best day I think. One of very few interesting aircraft flies to Zurich on Sunday`s only. The JAT DC-9 and a lot of MD-11.

Although I'm not from Switzerland, I'd like to join your meeting, the train takes me four hours to ZRH, the Emb145/Saab2000 takes me 45 minutes block-time (plus the average one hour delay...). Probably saturday is the best day of the week for most of you, but I could arange it to go to ZRH on a weekday as well, I've been to ZRH on saturdays often so a weekday would be a nice change.
Looking forward to see you all!

I think weekends are most probably the best dates as most people have to work during the week. So next acceptable dates would be March 29/30, April 5/6 and April 12/13 according to my appointments book  Wink/being sarcastic.

If I can get a fairly cheap ride on either Germanwings, LH, AB or Swiss I would like to join in too. I had a flight booked there in February but I didn't go because of the snow-caos we had. So a meeting would be great.

I will be spotting at Malpensa on April 19 and will fly to Girona on Ryanair from Orio al Serio on April 20 for one week, so I would unfortunately not be able to participate in a meeting after April 12/13.

Well, I guess it will never be possible to find a date that suits all, but, if we have fun with that meeting, I'm sure well have more of them, and in time, everybody will be able to attend a meeting.

So, how about 5/6 april as a first, still changable date?

The fares from DUS to ZRH are around 700 EUR on April 5/6, one week earlier the same flights are available for only 140 EUR. My favorite date would be Saturday, March 29, if some other a.net members have time on this date I will book my flight immediately
