Here you have your Swissair-Fan  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

About jumpseat: ask whoever you see with a Swissair uniform  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

at ZRH: go to the visitors desk on the roof of Terminal B. Take a camera and take as much shots as you can. If you are there between 10.00 and 14.00, then you will have plenty of widebodies to look at.

From what I know you cvan visit the cockpit but I doubt they let you fly all way long in the jumpseat. About staying 3 hours in Zurich you have a nice place to spot in Terminal B terrace, you have a nice cheap bar where you can have a sandwich and a beer, spot nicely and also visit a shop that have a lot of aviation books, you may find something interesting, the terrace have seats and if its sunny there's always shades on those seats. About trafic, you'll see many Swissair Airbuses, MD11's, also some traffic from Europe and also from Eastern countries like Albania, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Russia, Georgia, I'm sure you'll have a great time!
Good trip and don't forget to get the registrations of the planes you fly!!!

Swissair places restrictions on who is allowed in the cockpit for takeoff and landing, although in flight visits are never a problem. Never hurts to ask though - the worst they can do is say no.

If you are lucky, and the weather is good, Zurich is one of the best airports around for spotters. Getting to the best places requires a car, but the terrace over terminal B is also excellent. There is a bar conveniently placed to keep warm, if it's too cold  Smile

To get to the terrace, you will have to go through immigration, as it is not in the secured zone. I don't know if you need a visa for Switzerland (I doubt it), but you might want to check.

Have fun.

Thank you guys so much!

Im sure it will help me a lot.
Since my flight lands at terminal B, I gues it wont be a problem reaching the terrace though my ZRH-FRA sector leaves from terminal.

So again, Thanx!

Shouldn't be any problem. When you leave, head for the immigration desks, which are downstairs, go through customs to the arrival hall. Go up the escalators to the departure check/in area, and if I remember right, the entrance to the terrace will be at the far corner on the right. It costs 2 francs to get in, and you will be searched.
