Hi all!


The ZRH-A.NET MEET 2012 will be hold at Saturday, August 25th.

The program so far:

- We meet from 9.30 onwards at the entrance to the new terrace on top of the brand new Dock-B.

- Then, we will take the shuttle at 11.00 or earlier to Dock-E from the new visitor terrace on Dock-B (see the departure of the SIA A380 at approx. 12.00)

- After taking the shuttle bus back to the terrace on Dock-B, we will jump at 13.30 on a tour bus. The bus tour will take us to the several Docks as well as to RWY 14 and the world famous runway cross 16/34-10/28.

- This tour will be finished between 14.45 to 15.00 (depending on current departure traffic)

- The second tour takes us at 17.00 into the brand new Dock-B! We will see Dock-B and its inner things on a way, like normally only passengers will see. Even some more “behind the scenes” will be revealed on this tour. The tour will be finished at approx. 18.30.

The price for the tour without the shuttle to Dock-E is CHF 17, -- (please count with additional CHF 4, -- four the shuttle to Dock-E).
A new restaurant on the terrace Dock-B will provide selected foods and drinks. More food is available at the food court or at Migros, in the close by airport shopping center.

The tours through Dock-B are limited to 20 persons for each tour group. The less people we are, the higher will rise up the price. It’s an old game, like always before. So, to keep this price so low, we should be either 20, or even 40 attendees.


Here some reminders:

- Do not forget your binoculars, cameras and radio scanners (ATC-scanners are allowed in Switzerland)!

- Please consider that we will enter the airside of the airport. Bring your passport or ID with you! You and your luggage will be x-rayed. Do not bring any knifes, or sharp tools and stuff like this with you. The airport security will not allow taking these items with you on the visitor terraces.

- Please stay within the fence (especially at the runway cross) all the time!

- Bring some rain coat or umbrella, in case the weather is not with us.


IMPORTANT:
Please sign only up, after you made sure that you will definitely attend the whole meet! It is only possible to book the complete meet.


I will keep you informed regarding the payment, as soon as we know more about how many people have sign up by June 30th.



Here a link to a video of the new terrace on Dock-B:

That's really great ! I'm scheduled to work on the 25th but will request to be off asap. A first look at airfares showed some acceptable options from DUS/CGN so I should be able to confirm soon  

By the way, Patrick, I tried to email you earlier this year about a possible ZRH meet but maybe did you change your address ?

Hey, and let's not forget that the new Upperdeck Restaurant has just opened, including real-time flight data shown on the large multimedia screens.

Excellent news.

Depending on whether I can get that Friday off from work I either use a weird routing as
AB HAJ - PMI - ZRH (the PMI - ZRH sector supposed to be operated by a A332)
returning ACH - VIE - HAJ on Peoples Vienna Airline and 4U on Sunday.

...
or if I have to work on Friday it will be a boring nonstop HAJ-ZRH late Friday evening returning ZRH-HAJ Sunday noon, all on LX.

I also looked into options to include FDH in my routing but LH is too expensive oneway (or has bad timings in one direction) and 4U drops me too far away from home.
Better for me to combine FDH with FMM some time in the future ...

I booked my outbound flights last night (not directly with AB but with a broker, as AB would not sell the connection):

Friday, 24-AUG
HAJ PMI AB9582 1140-1400h A320
PMI ZRH AB3359 1510-1700h A332

Hotel
Sternen Oerlikon 24.08-27.08.

Will likely return on KL via AMS as I need to collect some FB-Miles to extend validity of the miles in my account. But as a return ticket out of ZRH on AF/KL is much cheaper than a oneway ticket I still am evaluating options for the return leg (date & destination).

No problem. Just come and join the group for the meeting - and hopefully some informal dinner afterwards.

Or come to Manchester, UK on Saturday 30-JUN joining the group at the beer garden of the airport hotel (and usually some dinner in downtown Manchester. Not sure if it is Indian cuisine on famous Curry Mile again this year).

As HT said, no problem, you will meet great people and as an aviation enthusiast you really can't be disappointed with ZRH  
See you there !
