Nice to hear that you managed to book a tour of SR Technics, but I won’t be able to come at all. So, I have taken me off the ”maybe” list. Have a nice time, everyone!

Quoting MadameConcorde (Reply 32):
I will have to see about arranging a hotel by the airport for the night. There are websites where we can get good rates. I am very curious about the club down there.

The only club I can think of close to the airport would be the "Alpen Rock House" which is located halfway between the main terminals and the SRTechnics facilities. It's probably not the kinda club you'd enjoy. Admission age is 16 on weekends and it's flooded by masses of drunk, annoying teenagers. I stopped going there years ago. If you want to go out, there are a lot of better clubs downtown (but you'll have to bring a packed wallet). Also, some of you might want to look at the Park Inn hotel. It's located on the other side of the airport, only a short walk from the "Heligrill" spotting location and they offer a free shuttlebus to the airport. (plus there are a couple of pizzerias and a mcdonalds loacted nearby).

I myself probably won't be able to attend, as i'll probably be in the middle of my A320 typerating training in August, plus I attended the SRT tour late last year (very recommendable).

But have fun everbybody!

I think you will fly on a RJ100, LX has a nice 2+3 config. that will give you more comfort. See you there !

Thank you. This is the name of the place, yes. I did not think it would be packed with drunk teenagers.

I am not sure I would want to go to town where it costs too much. I would rather spend part of the evening in a nice café in a spot with a scene, maybe one of the places by the water.

I am a frequent visitor to ZRH airport. I will have to tell my friend Nicolas Dirac (First to Fly the A380) about the meet when he gets back from the First A380 flight to Paris CDG. He lives and works in Zurich. I am sure he would enjoy meeting with the group.

I am not sure about which hotel I will pick. I generally bid on Priceline at the last minute for good deals always in very good hotels.

Please keep me on the "maybe" list and the SR Technics tour for now.

I hope you will make it. It will be nice to see you one more time in zrh. Oh, and I will for sure tease you about USA  Wink

You are right, the flight between LYS and ZRH is listed as today on a RJ. Will be my first time on Swiss. My other experiences so far with this plane was with AF and LH, so I will for sure enjoy the 2+3 layout!

Too bad that the ERJ170 is not scheduled between BIQ and LYS...

See you!

Plenty of nice places in town by the lake and also along the river Limmat with reasonable prices for drinks, especially in sunny weather conditions. Summer evenings in Zürich are awesome, with lots of people about. You can take a walk along the lake, starting at the Bellevue. Or alternatively, you could check out the "Wings" bar at the river Limmat. It's a Bar decorated with old Swissair and other aviation stuff.

I can guarantee you won't get bored, plenty of options!

have fun! Big grin

-
Definitely yes, except that there are a bit more folks around on that day then usual. But even along the lake, after about 6pm, things return to normal. And the folks taking part in the street parade are funny people, of (almost) all ages, from many nations. Business in the city generally is as usual. THIS is why the parade was moved from the actual centre to the lakeside, as it that way is no space problem. True, during the day, their "music" tends to be a bit loud .

I've always wanted to come to one of these things, and with the SR Technics tour this seals the deal. Going to block of a few days of work, list for flights. Loads out of YYZ look pretty good for now. so sign me up for the maybe list, and list me for the tour.

*Stupid question, but is the tour going to be offered in english, as thats the only language i have a good grasp on at this time.

I'll definitely be there for the SR Technics tour with 2 friends. I don't know yet if I'll make it for the morning spotting at observation deck E, therefore I'll put myself on "Maybe" for that part.

AB8118-08aug DUS-ZRH
AB8143-09aug ZRH-DUS

Still looking for a decent hotel: heard ParkInn, Moevenpick and RadissonBlue quite nice with a preference for Moevenpick; would that be a good choice (airport views, etc) ?

Fares between GVA and ZRH only usually are very high.
Should be cheaper to fly NCE-ZRH.
Or if you really want to fly into GVA, take the train to Zürich ... ?

I stayed at the RadissonBlu (formerly RadissonSAS) last year in the inauguration week.
Nice hotel, very conveniently located, good breakfast. Nice rooms with free LAN/WiFi.
However, no views of the runway / apron to speak of.

Never been to the Moevenpick.
The Park Inn is on the west side of the airport and should be okay for a (little bit longer) walk to the airport's fence for spotting. Never stayed at the hotel yet, but I also consider(ed) it. However, without a car, one is bound to use the hotel shuttle - a fact I personally hate ...
(and no free LAN/WiFi at the park Inn).

Quoting MH017 (Reply 19):

No views of the airport from the Hotel itself, but a short walk will take you close to the departure end of runway 16 (albeit with very limited views) In about 20 minutes, you can make it to the Heligrill location, close to where the ParkInn is located. There's also a tram stop nearby which will take you to the airport in just a few minutes.

The ParkInn would be the best choice spotting wise, because, like i mentioned earlier, it's just a short walk from one of the best spotting locations (Heligrill). Although you're dependant on their shuttle bus to get to/from the airport.

The Radisson would be the most convenient option, since it's located pretty much in the middle of the airport, adjacent to the terminals. However, it's almost impossible to reach any good spotting locations other than the viewing terrace (unless you want to spend a fortune on a taxi).

The Moevenpick, as I mentioned above, is a little of both.

They all have their pros and cons, personally, I would go with the best price.

Did a research on opodo for a two nights stay NCE-ZRH 07-09 august and found this...
Air Berlin (via DUS) 222,90 €
Swiss / Lufthansa (direct / via FRA) 225 € | 253 € 08-09 august
Swiss (direct) 267 €

Still expensive but much better  Wink

I'd go for that hotel. I was in that hotel for 6 weeks during my Type Rating on MD11F at Swiss Aviation Training.
They were friendly and it was clean and from the right rooms you could see the departing heavies from runway 16.

I know a good place for "SchniPo" (Schnitzel + Pommes). In Gluddbrugg (spelling?). So HUGE and deliciuos and not too expensive. Yummy Big grin

I cannot remember how this place was called, but I know where it is and how to get there from the Mövenpick hotel as we had diner/ lunch there quite often during our 6 week stay in the Mövenpick Hotel.

Booking engine hrs.de mentions a "personal, free shuttle to/from the airport".
Sounds like one has to call in rather than a running at a fixed schedule.

I'm sorry, he will finally be unable to join us. This leave an open space for the tour.

By the way, is anyone interested in the public tour ? If I'm correct the tour make a quick stop at the runway crossing spot, maybe we could arrange a longer stop if it's possible ?

I had requested a special tour for us with an extended stay at the runway cross, but it was denied.
Alternative is the publically available standard tour which stops at the runway for around 5 to 10 minutes.

If there is space on the SR tour, sign me up. August 8th is a Saturday, so I should be able to attend. Although I am learning German in Germany, I cannot understand Sweizer Deutsch at all.

I will make it a day trip though. I will take the train from Singen most likely, unless someone wants to pick me up?

HT, if you need something, let me know. I have a German Bank account at the Deutsche Bank, and I could transfer you the funds.

Beside the point that you apparently are in Singen, where the spoken language is very similar to Swiss German dialects in the north-east, Swiss people speak Standard-German if required. So simply ask for "Schrift-Deutsch" which is the school-language in Switzerland. And of course, the whole "operation" is conducted in English anyway.

I opened a waiting list for the SR Technics tour, as at present there are exactly 20 people listed for the tour. However, I it is quite likely that one or the other will remove himself from the list.

No need to prepay; all financial things are done on the spot in ZRH in the morning.

Like ME AVN FAN already pointed out, the tour at SR Technics will be held in English language. Also, during the remainder of the meeting, English is the common language.
Above that, I found that those guides who host the public tour of the airport (NOT part of the meeting this year) usually refrain from speaking Schweizer Deutsch ...
