Why No ZRH A.net Member Meetings?

Mon Mar 17, 2003 7:13 am

Hi guys,
with lots of other a.net member meetings being held in the near future, I thought it would be time to discuss a possible meeting in Zurich somewhen this spring.

Although I have only been taking part in the a.net forums for one year now, we've discussed some 20 times mostly about new airlines at "our home airport".

I would be very interested in meeting some other active a.net members from Switzerland in ZRH. Any thoughts?

Best regards

That`s a good idea. Sunday is the best day I think. One of very few interesting aircraft flies to Zurich on Sunday`s only. The JAT DC-9 and a lot of MD-11.

Although I'm not from Switzerland, I'd like to join your meeting, the train takes me four hours to ZRH, the Emb145/Saab2000 takes me 45 minutes block-time (plus the average one hour delay...). Probably saturday is the best day of the week for most of you, but I could arange it to go to ZRH on a weekday as well, I've been to ZRH on saturdays often so a weekday would be a nice change.
Looking forward to see you all!

What about a Saturday or Sunday in April?

I think weekends are most probably the best dates as most people have to work during the week. So next acceptable dates would be March 29/30, April 5/6 and April 12/13 according to my appointments book  Wink/being sarcastic.

If I can get a fairly cheap ride on either Germanwings, LH, AB or Swiss I would like to join in too. I had a flight booked there in February but I didn't go because of the snow-caos we had. So a meeting would be great.

If the meeting will be on March 29 I will be there, LX has very good fares and I can enjoy an other ride on my favorite plane, the ER4.

I will be spotting at Malpensa on April 19 and will fly to Girona on Ryanair from Orio al Serio on April 20 for one week, so I would unfortunately not be able to participate in a meeting after April 12/13.

Well, I guess it will never be possible to find a date that suits all, but, if we have fun with that meeting, I'm sure well have more of them, and in time, everybody will be able to attend a meeting.

So, how about 5/6 april as a first, still changable date?

The fares from DUS to ZRH are around 700 EUR on April 5/6, one week earlier the same flights are available for only 140 EUR. My favorite date would be Saturday, March 29, if some other a.net members have time on this date I will book my flight immediately

I would really love to come but I do not know where I should take the extra 140EUR from... If I had the cash I would than book the same flight as Sabena332 and come with him since I would also love to fly with Swiss.
Well I guess it won't be the last meeting at ZRH (I sure hope so!).

Max,

you can try it with 4U, the fare is 108 EUR for both flights, at least 32 EUR cheaper than LX.

Patrick,
I already had a look at Germanwings and indeed it is much cheaper (98€ not 108€) but still that is 200DM and I'm still just a student... And if I had the money than for sure I would pay the extra 42€ to fly with Swiss since I never had the chance to fly with Swissair...

Well miracles can still happen...  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
