I'm really sorry to be offline almost every day from the last three weeks. I can't stay in touch with the forum, what a pity...
I can't wait for this event and to meet all attendees! It will be a very needed oxygen bubble for me
I would also add that I will stay at the Hilton (Friday to Saturday) and at the Marriott Downtown (Saturday to Sunday). I plan to have a ZURICH overview during Sunday.

Furtunately I got those days off in my bid award and am looking forward to coming to ZRH for the first time. I may fly into London and then catch a flight from there, I am not sure yet but whi knows. I will definitely look at catching a nonstop. Remember I am non-revving in and may to go the long way way, but I will be there.

Just checking to see if anyone who is staying at the Ibis is having problems with online confirmation of thier reservations. I went to check mine and reconfirm my dates and it said my confirmation number was invalid. I don;t want to not have a room and bed in ZRH. The dates of the meet amazingly for some reason are completely sold out at the Ibis.

Hi Sean - I`ve just checked mine on their website and it did eventually display the reservation, although it took a few attempts !
Their website seems quite fussy about how you enter the details though - I did get the `invalid` response a few times, I think it was the way I entered my name - try entering just your surname in CAPITALS and make sure you`ve got the correct case for the reference number as well.
If all else fails it may mean a quick call to the hotel and they will have the details of your res.

Put me down for a T-shirt. Also I am staying at the Ibis with about 5 other people that are coming. I am planning on coming in on arrival on 28Jul and leaving either the 30th or 31st depending on flight loads. Can't wait.

Here the plan again for July 29th, 2006.
Meet from 9.30am on till 10.30am, in front of the "Visitors Terrace" at Check-in 2.
Visit of the "Terraces B, + E" and a special bus tour to the touch down zone of RWY 14 and to the runway crossings of the RWY's 16/34 - 10/28.
(Until approx. 2.00pm)
After that, we'll have a lunch brake at "Terrace B", before we go at 3.30pm
again to the bus gate.
The other bus-tour will bring the group to the maintenance area of the airport where we will join an arranged tour offered by "SR-TECHNICS", one of the world leading aircraft maintenance companies. This tour will last for about 2,5 hours.
We'll see how engines, structure, cockpit instruments and components of aircrafts are overhauled.
If were lucky, we might see an test-run of an engine in the engine test facility.
And we will go inside an aircraft which is on that day undergoing B, C, or even D-checks. Possibly we might see an a/c of an airline which is only a costumer of SR-TECHNICS and not flying regularly into ZRH.
The SR Technics tour will start by 4.00pm and finishes appr. at 6.30pm.

Ok final cost of the SR Technics tour is how much now that we do not have the 60 people?? Can't wait getting closer to the date now. Also predictions for the World Cup title who do you think will take it all. I am hoping Italy.
I Don't know where I am anymore
25 Glidepath73: I'll have to wait for the SR-Technics invoice. If they not send it by this week, I'll call them. But it should be not more increase as about CHF 2,--
26 HT: Another guess would be "France" ... See you in ZRH, -HT
27 Rpaillard: Hi, Who will collect the fee? Would it be possible to pay in €? Right! I'm sure that we are all giving our support to France, no? To bad that the fi

32 Mir: Add me to the Ibis list as well. I´ll be staying there on the 28th. I´ll be arriving from MUC by train. -Mir
33 Beowulf: Is there any special program for Sunday? What other hotels are people staying beside the Ibis?
34 DYflyer: I am staying at the Hilton. IIRC one more participant is staying there.
35 Rpaillard: Hi, I don't think there is something special planned for Sunday. I will personnaly spend the day dowtown to discover the city, before heading back to
36 Beowulf: Are you going to stay at the Hilton or at the Marriott now - or at both.
37 Rpaillard: Both of them, as you can see : Friday to Saturday: Hilton (that was the mistake on my previous post) Saturday to Sunday : Marriott, downtown. Regards
38 SwissA330: Mariott is at a good location, jsut next to the river to take a refreshing bath! I live in downtown ZRH, and might have some time to spend with some o
39 Rpaillard: Hi SwissA330, Yes, the Marriott seems to have a great location. I will have a top floor room, so I expect to enjoy a beautiful city view. I'm totally
40 Beowulf: Which one do you suggest more, Marriott or Hilton?
41 DeltaSFO: I wish I had paid more attention before the group filled up... I will likely be in ZRH on the 28th and 29th, leaving on DL67 on the 30th. My plans are
42 Rpaillard: I'm happy to give my point of view, but I'm far from an insider. It will be my first time in ZRH and Zurich. That said, the properties are quiet diff
43 HT: That's also my understanding. Access to the Viewing Terrace etc. is not limited (the usual entrance fees will apply). Only the Tour of SR Technics is
44 FutureFO: After all it is looking to be a rather large meet, anyone going to post a group pic afterwards online???? Sean
45 Glidepath73: That is partly true. I have a reported group for the bus tour of about 45 people. More than that could cause problems for me. There will be plenty of
