Now, after Swiss is bought by LH and will become Star Alliance member, I expect that at ZRH soon will be again a major terminal change. Perhaps the Oneworld carriers go back to T2 and T1 will be an only Star Alliance terminal. BTW don't discuss the gates (A, B or E). There is no connection between the handling terminal (check-in in T 1 or 2) and where the aircrafts are boarded. At the moment LX check-in counters are in T1 and they use A-Gates for European and E-Gates for intercontinental flights. LH and all other Star Alliance members use T2 and B-Gates (only by bus) for smaller aircrafts, the E-Gates for widebodies.

This is a question I have also asked myself recently. Star Alliance currently mainly uses the B gates because of the location of their lounge, so they most probably will have to move everyone around once again and it will become even funnier should Switzerland join the Schengen area .
