Hello everyone and welcome to my 10th trip report 



Introduction



Zurich Airport (ZRH), one of the most “spotter-friendly” airports in Europe. With various spotting locations around the airport and 2 observation decks (B and E). The fairly new observation deck B is open all year with the E deck only open during the summer (closes at 17:00). Zurich airport also offers guided bus tours.
Knowing all this, ZRH was of course high on my “to visit” list and as I had 1 more weekend off from work before my trip to the U.S.A. (21st July, more on that later) I looked upon the internet to look at the fares. After looking on different sites, SWISS (LX) turned out to be the cheapest this time and I booked them immediately (later upgraded to Business Class). Leaving Saturday morning and flying back Sunday night which gave me 2 nice days of spotting on both the observation decks!
When looking for an hotel, I wanted one that was as close to ZRH as possible. Radisson Blu hotel was the closest (direct connection to the terminal) and despite being a bit pricey I booked them immediately.
So what can you expect from this report? Well this report will be split into 2 parts due to the large amount of pictures.
Part 1 will cover my Business class flight on Edelweiss with an A320, a bunch of spotting pictures from both observation decks and the beginning of my stay at the Radisson Blu hotel.
Part 2 will cover the next day: another bunch of spotting pictures from the E deck and my flight back to AMS on SWISS in Business Class.
So sit back, relax and enjoy this report! 



MAP



Not a very interesting map for this report, all thanks to www.gcmap.com:

Getting to AMS



The night before flying I always have trouble falling asleep, I guess it’s just the excitement, and this time there was no exception. After having slept about 1,5 through the whole night I decided to get out of bed at 06:00 and take a nice shower. I had packed my bag the night before, so after a little breakfast I bid my father farewell and headed out to Amsterdam Lelylaan train station. A 10 minute walk later, through the practically deserted streets, I was at the station and waiting for the 07:43 Sprinter train to Hoofddorp via Schiphol. The train arrived right on schedule and about 10 min later I was at the quite busy Schiphol Plaza.



Check-in



As always I had checked in online the night before and just needed to print my BP. So upstairs I went to check-in area 8 where I could use one of the self-service machines. After swapping my FTL card the machine spit out my BP and I was ready to go! Instead of heading straight through security and on to the lounge I decided to go look at the panorama terrace (observation deck) upstairs.



Panorama Terrace



After heading up a couple of escalators and passing the food court I arrived at the terrace. A lot of observation decks around Europe cost money but Schiphols, is luckily enough still free. I headed through the glass doors and entered onto the terrace to take a quick look at the action. A lot of gates were still empty, now let’s first take a look down one side of the D-pier:

http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC02071.jpg

After taking that shot, this beautiful triholer came taxiing in in front of me, what a beauty!:

http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC02074.jpg

Another look, this time down part of the E-pier:

http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC02075.jpg

A KLM A330 PH-AOD had just arrived and came taxiing into the gate:

http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC02076.jpg

This sign of airlines serving AMS was clearly made before the CO/UA merger:

http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC02077.jpg

A bunch of Delta (DL) flights had already arrived:

http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC02078.jpg

An Air Transat (TS) A310 had just arrived and luckily parked right in front of the terrace:

http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC02082.jpg

One last look at the KLM heavies (including one of the 777s in KLM Asia livery) at part of the F-pier before heading back downstairs:

http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC02080.jpg

Once leaving the terrace I took 2 elevators all the way back downstairs to ground level before going back up 1 floor to the check-in area to pass security.



Security + Lounge



Once arriving at security I headed over to the priority lane where I was granted access and was through in no time. 45 minutes to go before boarding time, so I decided to head over to the Menzies lounge.
The Menzies lounge is up 1 floor next to the “airport park” and KLM Crown Lounge. After handing over my BP I was granted access and headed inside. I have covered this lounge a bit on my previous report: To Heathrow Via Munich + Lounges (by adamspotter Jun 12 2012 in Trip Reports) . Nothing special here but a nice place to relax for the next 35 min. After having a few drinks and enjoying the free WIFI it was time to head over to my gate: B23. So I gathered all my belongings and off I went.



Boarding



23/06/2012
AMS-ZRH
LX725 // 6F
A320 Edelweiss Air // HB-IHY
10:10 – 11:35


I arrived at my gate where boarding was about to commence right on time. All “status” and business class passengers were asked to board first so I headed towards the gate agent. After the agent scanned my BP I headed to the plane. As already said before this leg will be operated by Edelweiss Air and their beautiful livery! Once entering the plane I exchanged greetings with the male and female FA, and headed over to my seat 6F. First impression of the cabin: A bit worn but still in OK condition.
While the rest of the passengers were still boarding I made myself comfortable and took a look outside, Vueling (VY) EC-HQI was just getting ready to push back:

http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC02085.jpg

Soon enough I heard the “boarding completed” and the front left door was closed. While taking a look around the C cabin 17 of the 32 business class seats were occupied with the whole row to myself.
Flight crew consisted of 1 male purser, 1 male and 2 female FAs. The purser came onto the PA welcoming us onboard with the usual announcements and a flying time of 1h. Meanwhile one of the female FAs came around the cabin offering newspapers and handing out a bottle of Evian water with a refreshing towel to all business class passengers:

http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC02084.jpg

After doing that, the FA came around the whole cabin (Y+C) handing out these “feedback” cards:

http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC02086.jpg

http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC02087.jpg

Meanwhile the Pilot also came onto the PA welcoming us onboard and telling us that they were still awaiting ATC clearance due to congestion at ZRH. That meant another chance for me to take a look outside where the Vueling plane had left making this Finnair (AY) A320 our new neighbor. Behind the AY A320 was an Austrian (OS) F100:

http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC02091.jpg

The safety demonstration was played on the overhead screens:

http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC02090.jpg

The safety demonstration was finished, while we were still awaiting clearance, and the overhead screens were now showing the map:

http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC02088.jpg

They also seem to use Google Earth or something like that:

http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC02089.jpg



Pushback + Taxi



25 minutes after our SDT at 10:10 pushback finally commenced:

http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC02092.jpg

We then taxied to the “Aalsmeerbaan” also known as runway 18L, passing this little Adria Airways (JP) CRJ200 S5-AAD:

In no time the plane lifted off which gave us a great view of AMS!:

Seatback + Contents



The seatbelt sign “dinged” off, and while the purser and female FA were preparing our breakfast service I took the opportunity to take a quick look at the seatback and its contents. But first the mandatory legroom shot:

Breakfast Service



Soon enough the purser and FA came from behind the curtain and I got offered this tray together with a choice of some nice and warm croissants/breads, all offered with a smile:

Silverware + glass:

http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC02124.jpg

The fresh fruit had an OK taste, the croissant was nice and warm and the dessert was also OK, together with this I got an OJ and coffee.



Cruising + Descent



Cabin shot, the overhead screens were showing a “joking around” show:

Not sure which town this is on the river:

http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC02126.jpg

The FO came onto the PA saying that we were above Stuttgart now beginning our descent and that we should be landing on runway 14 in about 25 min:

Getting closer and closer to the clouds:

We flew a couple of circles before final approach towards runway 14:

De-boarding



The seatbelt sign “dinged” off and everybody got up and grabbed their belongings, including me. In no time the front left door was opened and I thanked and bid the crew farewell when exiting the aircraft onto the stairs. Once looking down the stairs there was an employee with a white sign saying: “Business Class” while guiding the C passengers to the bus. We got our own bus (with a few Y pax that slipped through) while the rest of the Y pax waited on the stairs for the next bus. The bus drove us to the terminal and once arriving inside, I headed straight to the terminal B observation deck.



Observation Deck B



I followed the clear signs to the deck, which is located at the back corner of check-in area 2. Paid the 5CHF entrance fee and cleared security (the same security procedure) in no time. First impression of the fairly new deck was a very good one, it looked nice:

http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC02169.jpg

Observation Deck E



From the B deck you can take the guided bus tour (8CHF) or take the bus over to the E deck. After 30 min of spotting at the B deck I decided to head over to the E deck, so I paid the 4CHF entrance fee and waited in the special “waiting room” which shows this nice and big poster of Zurich:

http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC02181.jpg

After a 10 minute bus ride I headed upstairs to the 3rd floor of the E terminal where the E deck was located:

As it was nearing 17:00, the time which the E deck closes, I started grabbing my belongings feeling very tired by now due to my short night before and took the elevator back downstairs where the last bus was waiting to head back to the B deck. Once arriving, I decided to head straight to my hotel and relax. Before exiting the deck I took a quick picture of this KLM 737 sitting at the gate:

http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC02226.jpg



Radisson Blu Hotel



I headed straight over to check-in area 1 and took the escalators downstairs. It’s a short walk to the hotel and once arriving I headed straight to the reception desk. After being greeted and welcomed to the hotel I got a nice surprise: “ Mr. adamspotter, due to overbooking you have been upgraded to a business class room”. Wow! Very nice. Feeling quite happy I took the elevators up to the 6th floor and walked over to my room 625:

http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC02227.jpg

The view from my room:

http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC02230.jpg

While watching some TV I dozed off for about an hour until waking up again. Still felling very sleepy I headed downstairs to the restaurant to get a nice bite to eat. The Radisson Blu Hotel here at ZRH has a bar & grill and a Filini restaurant. I opted for the Filini restaurant and had a very nice Lasagne Verdi. Being very full I headed back upstairs, watched a movie, and finally fell asleep



Conclusion



Overall I had an OK flight with Edelweiss Air. The crew was nothing special, but did their job with a smile. The cabin looked a bit worn but was still in OK condition. The breakfast service was OK, nothing special.
Spotting at ZRH is absolutely great. Both the decks (even though I preferred the E deck) are great and give very good views, you can get close and personal with the planes!

This will conclude this trip report. Thank you very much for taking the time and reading this report, it is much appreciated! Part 2 with more spotting pictures and my flight back with SWISS in C should be online at the end of this week/beginning of next week. Stay tuned!!

I hope you guys liked my “new style” report. Comments / Suggestions / Questions are very welcome and much appreciated.

Greetings,
Brendan Berkhout // adamspotter

Hey Brendan,

An excellent quality TR! Despite having flown to ZRH on numerous occasions (and usually with very long layovers) I've never been to the observation decks. The views are great. What a feast for the eyes. Good thing that ZRH gets a lot of interesting traffic to look at.

I hear you brother! I'm exactly the same. It's some kind of preliftoffinsomia.

Quoting adamspotter (Thread starter):
“ Mr. adamspotter, due to overbooking you have been upgraded to a business class room”. Wow! Very nice. Feeling quite happy I took the elevators up to the 6th floor and walked over to my room 625:

How sweet! I liked the view from your hotel window. If the weather was right I could totally see myself glued there for hours on end shooting photos.


Thanks for sharing! Looking forward to the next segment.

Hey Adamspotter,

Your name now is associated with quick trips be it around Europe or across the pond to Canada lol. I just love how you just spend a weekend away from home, in a blink of an eye!!

Quoting adamspotter (Thread starter):
Zurich Airport (ZRH), one of the most “spotter-friendly” airports in Europe. With various spotting locations around the airport and 2 observation decks (B and E). The fairly new observation deck B is open all year with the E deck only open during the summer (closes at 17:00). Zurich airport also offers guided bus tours.
Quoting adamspotter (Reply 2):
Spotting at ZRH is absolutely great. Both the decks (even though I preferred the E deck) are great and give very good views, you can get close and personal with the planes!

Great to know Zurich is so spotter friendly. Also those guided bus tours must be great. I know Frankfurt has them too, but unfortunately the start time for that tour coincided with my boarding time for my flight to Dubai..oh well!!

Quoting adamspotter (Thread starter):
Radisson Blu hotel was the closest (direct connection to the terminal) and despite being a bit pricey
Quoting adamspotter (Reply 2):
I headed straight over to check-in area 1 and took the escalators downstairs. It’s a short walk to the hotel and once arriving I headed straight to the reception desk. After being greeted and welcomed to the hotel I got a nice surprise: “ Mr. adamspotter, due to overbooking you have been upgraded to a business class room”. Wow! Very nice. Feeling quite happy I took the elevators up to the 6th floor and walked over to my room 625:

How nice to find something so close to the airport, considering you were on a spotting trip and did not have to waste time travelling to and from the city. Must keep this place in mind. How pricey was pricey? Glad that you got upgraded...nice!!

Quoting adamspotter (Thread starter):
After heading up a couple of escalators and passing the food court I arrived at the terrace. A lot of observation decks around Europe cost money but Schiphols, is luckily enough still free. I headed through the glass doors and entered onto the terrace to take a quick look at the action.

Looks like you got to do some spotting on your own soil as well!!

Quoting adamspotter (Thread starter):
After doing that, the FA came around the whole cabin (Y+C) handing out these “feedback” cards:

Good report there Brendan. Glad I wasn't imagining things - I did notice a slightly different style of layout in your report.

Great pictures too and good to know there's spotters areas in ZRH. I'm assuming that you can only access them from landside? I've got a 3 hour stop there later in the year so it's something worth exploring!

Looking forward to your next installments.

Hoi Brendan,

great report, good pics too! Very clear and sharp   
Edelweiss delivered standard service on your flight it seems, service ok, maybe business friendly as know by the Germans? The breakfast is rather ok, but so 'standard' also. Was there further additional drink service because you seems to have only OJ and coffee? That's what I usual drink in Y.
Nice spotting pics... ZRH is a great airport. Didn't you have questions to ask at the infodesk during your stay?

Hi Brendan!

Thanks for a great report with very nice pictures!

Seems like a perfect short getaway; ZRH is great for spotting and really nice with two observation decks and a tour of the airport available. I've been to those decks and taken the tour although about ten years ago.

Flights look nice and great to be able to log a rare charter carrier on a intra-European flight.

Hotel looks nice too.

From the B deck you can take the guided bus tour (8CHF) or take the bus over to the E deck. After 30 min of spotting at the B deck I decided to head over to the E deck, so I paid the 4CHF entrance fee and waited in the special “waiting room” which shows this nice and big poster of Zurich:

So basically you can pay 8CHF for a tour, or pay 4 CHF to be bussed to the E deck. That's not that expensive at all.

Very good story with nice spotting pics.
I'm glad you got to sample the Edelweiss product, I failed this one some time ago unfortunately so I 'm glad to see now what I missed   Not too much actually, besides that gorgeous livery! Some other seat pocket stuff (magazine) then on Swiss main and another airshow as well. Was the tail cam on?

Looks as though you enjoyed yourself in Zurich. The pictures you to are great in any case!

I'm a bit surprised they gave you a bottle of Evian at the beginning of the flight. Previously there was only a Swiss still water named Henniez available on board. Perhaps Evian is cheaper?

Other than that though, I could not tell any difference from the photos to the regular SWISS European Business Class service.

Thanks for posting. I'll be looking out for the reports on your Canadian adventure!
