I will be through Zurich airport on the 19th to London Heathrow to attend the Farnborough Air Show and via ZRH again and overnighting in one of the airport hotels the night of 22/23 July. This is a miss-out. How would I know? The LX ticket is no date change/non-refundable as I wanted to spend the least money and reserved it early.  
There was a better way to fly it was called Concorde

So here are further details so far:

Meeting at SATURDAY July 17th, from 9:30am onwards at ARRIVAL 2 at the very rigth end, facing to the exits.
We have to check in for the shuttle bus to DOCK E at 11:00 am. Everybody should be here then the latest.
After 1 hour and 45 Minutes spotting from the terrace (we will see from there the SIA A380 taking of at RWY 16), we will proceed on with the bus airport trip and extendet hold at the world famous runway cross 16-34/10-28.   

After this, we will be brought back to the terminal or DOCK E for lunch brake.
Another guided tour will start at 15:30. This time, we will see how ZRH works. We see the how check in works as well as the nice AIRSIDE center from inside. It proceeds on with a trip in the SKYMETRO to DOCK E where we will see cool stuff as well. Maybe we can take a step inside a docked SWISS Airbus. This depends on current time scopes and availability at the LX dispatch office.

The tour will be finished at approx. 18:00.
The price of this tour depends on the amount of people showing up. Expect CHF 28,-- if only 30 show up. If 40 show up we, might pay only CHF 22,-- each person.

PLEASE NOTE: THIS TIME A MAYBE LIST IS IMPOSSIBLE!
All attendants will have to pay the complete trip in advance via PAY PAL. The effective acount will be anounced later on.
The fee has to be paid at least 15 days before the meet. Please don't consider this as a bad new rule. I have to go on this way, as a result of the high amount of no shows and no payers spoiling A.NET meets in the past.
If less then 30 people sign up, we have to cancel the whole meet, since the price would rise up for each person like a rocket.

I hope for a lovely meet with lovely weather and lovely A.NETTERS!   


Greetz,
Patrick

PS: Big thanks to Mr. Loosli from ZURICH AIRPORT. He made an acception for AIRLINERS.NET, since those bus trips are normally not anymore bookable at Saturdays!

As every time, I can't miss Patrick's wonderful ZRH A.net meet, especially considering that Zurich Airport is making a special exception to open the tour on Saturday for us.

So here's the "definitely attending" list:

Glidepath 73 + 4

Mixed feeling here ....

First, Patrick I'm SO glad to see you back holding this unique and great meeting for yet another Edition. We missed you last year ...

Second, Holger, thank you SO much for last year organization. You were a great host, and we had a blast with Airtrainer and Anthony thanks to you.

Third, as some of you know, I do live now in Montreal. Family will be in town in July so I can't come. It's a big disappointment, not only as for the meeting itself, but also for all guys. I attended the last 4 meeting if my memory serves well and it was always a fabulous moment.

ZRH Meet is a must, but I just can't attend this year.

I wish you all a fantastic week end in Zurich,

Hey Patrick,

It's not the distance per se. I won't be able to attend this cause because family will be in town but I'm pretty confident regarding ZRH Meet 2011  

Have a GREAT one. Can't wait to see the pictures by the way

Well the IBIS Hotel is not bad. Check this out: http://www.ibishotel.com/de/hotel-29...s-zurich-messe-airport/index.shtml
The hotel is located only 5 km from ZRH.
The prices are ok.
Book as soon your decision is made to attend the meet.

REGARDING THE PAYMENT DEADLINE:

I have to know the effective amount of attendant 15 days before the meet.

This date would be: SATURDAY, JULY 3rd, 2010.

Bookings after this date are not possible!
The payment has to be done finally at this day.

Just to remind: If less than 30 people sign up, I would have to cancel this meet, since prices would rise dramatically.

I read this as follows ... ?!
You will be able to define the cost on 03-JUL-2010, but in turn we shall transfer the money on the same day ? Might be a bit short, as not everbody is online here each day ...
Personally I will be attending the MAN-Meeting, on the Saturday in question ...

The hotel is located only 5 km from ZRH.

It also offers a (free, IIRC) bus shuttle.
On the same premises is the Formule One hotel (vary basic) also of Accor-Chain.
A couple of paces down the road is a Novotel from Accor.
More hotels on the road to the airport (a tram is running there) or near the airport.

The Park Inn is located too far off the interesting areas for my taste, but usually has good rates.

Quoting LONGisland89 (Reply 14):
Also, how soon should I book the hotel?

Indeed, hotels should be reserved (but not necessarily "paid for") as soon as possible; gambling on falling rates last minute is deadly in Zürich.

More budget accomodation is available downtown, but in general rates are fairly high in Zürich.

Personally I will be staying at the Radisson Blu, which is linked to the airport. Hard to beat the comfort, especially for late arrivals.

True. But I think I might be able to kick in about a few more of my workmates and or friends if thinks might get worse. We should reach 30 at least.
Let's see how difficult it is. I rather prefer more A.netters to sign up though.  

Regarding calling: Strange, I can't find your calls in my phone display. Maybe there is something wrong with the number.
I'll pm it to you again. Just check it later on.

Just an idea in order to get more people 'on the list'

Since the PayPal doesn't have to be payed until July (more than 1 month) maybe it makes sence to open up a 'maybe' list until then?
I guess then we could see a more accurate number of people that might show up in the end.
Of course as of e.g. July 1st (more than 14 days before the event) the maybe list is 'deleted' and everyone has to either say yes or no... and then pay, no matter if show or no show...

Rgds, Patrick

BTW, I would also like to thank all past and current organisers for all the wonderful events! I still have my 'badge' with the user name from one of the first meetings and the sticker from the meet 2007 is in my Agenda

Of course as of e.g. July 1st (more than 14 days before the event) the maybe list is 'deleted' and everyone has to either say yes or no... and then pay, no matter if show or no show...

IIRC, Patrick (Glidepath73) needs to report the exact numbers of participants to the tour providers 1 month in advance. However, it still might be that he reports the maximum number of people that would go with a single tour guide and then it will be our (= the whole group showing up, not Patrick's) problem to distribute the cost associated.

With only 16 participants, the costs per head likely will go up signficantly.
Options to be discussed once needed, as at least I already have invested in non-refundable flight tickets ...

To be kept in mind: It is a financially risky thing to organize these meetings at ZRH, as the charge for the professional tours is staggered by number of participants (relating to number of tour guides needed to shepherd the crowd). For the tour I organized last year, the cut was (IIRC) 20 people, meaning it was a fixed total fee regardless whether 2 or 20 people participated.
Things are different for those meetings in the U.K. where the main focus seems to be "having a good time hanging out at either The Green Man (LHR) or the Airport Pub (MAN) and no real program behind.

Just my input as last year's organizer (which was far from reaching "break even" on the financial side, but the overall experience was more than worth it), but it is up to Patrick (Glidepath73) to allow a Maybe-List or not ...

Well the maybe List could be closed one month ahead...
It's more to get an more approximate idea of how many people will show up.

In a pretty extreme example:
I'd hate the meeting to be canceled because 'only' 25 Persons are definitive, and around 20 would have been 'maybes' of which most would come, but nobody knew...  Wink

anyway, it's just a suggestion, Patrick(Glidepath) shall decide...

BR, Patrick

Well, why do I announce the date of the meets always so early? Because attendees have then the possibility to make a clear decision and mark the day in the calendar and that's it! Nothing else will be planned on that day then.

If I plan to fly somewhere a certain day, I have to set up the date of flight, book even early to get a fair price and then nothing else happens that day by side this flight! I can't book a flight and tell the airline: Maybe I fly with you. The money will be gone, if you fly or not. Your YES should be a YES, your NO a NO.
Nothing different here with the meets.

Thus: NO MAYBE LIST!

People can make decisions for this day even early and stay behind their own decision to join.

I'm sure you understand that.

Ok I see where Patrick is coming from in that he wants people to make up their minds.. I shall be in ZRH nevertheless over that weekend.. If there will be no chance of the airport tour then so be it.. I will still spend the time on the Friday visiting the city and then maybe on the Saturday do a bit of spotting myself.. So on my half all will not be lost..

Don't worry, the tour will be done. We will be at least 20 people.

Still making up my mind on what to do on Sunday.
Options range from "heading to downtown Zürich", over spotting at ZRH, renting a bike and cycle around the airport, to taking the train to Lake Constance - even making a return trip ZRH - LUG - ZRH might be an option, albeit a costly one.
If only one could be sure about the weather ...
Likely I will decide last minute.

Or take a train to Lucerne! A lovely town with nice buildings. You can take a boat trip on the lovely lake of Lucerne called "Vierwaldstätter See".
