Hello everyone

which is the first Saturday after its opening.

So, let's take this chance to check our new deck out together. Hope many of you will join me!!!

I am coming back from Athens on September 2nd and spending until the 16th in Geneva so I'll do my best to try and come. I guess we will do the attendee list in the usual format, simply add your name at the top.

Gents, good idea, but bear in mind that some airlines then still operate from Terminal B (actually those handled by Jet Aviation). The whole move from Terminal B to Pier E is completed by 21st September.

Enjoy the meeting!

Hey Gerardo

Great that you're coming....

Saw your tour-party yesterday on the airport from the Heli-Grill, did you have a good time?

Also saw you guys photographing N728A...

Was on the tour today, but nothing special showed up  Sad

FlySwiss, Star Alliance short haul flights basically stay in Terminal B while the long haul flights (SQ, TG, AC) move to Pier E. That's only for the aircraft parking positions! Check-in will still be in Terminal 2

Guys, for your planning: the shuttle bus from Terminal B to Concourse E runs every 30 minutes as per 3rd September. Don't know yet at what time the 1st and the last bus runs...

Did you notice, I found another expression: Concourse E...  Nuts

hey guys,

I visited the new midfield terminal again yesterday. It was nice to have the new observation deck all to myself again!! Anyways, its very nice and they are currently fixing up any glitches with the air-train. The lounges are still yet to be built. The airlines are not sure if they will build new lounges in the new terminal or just use the current ones in the other terminals. Vendors have rarely rented spaces as well!!

I was invited to board Swiss' new a340 yesterday as well. I must say, at first i did not like the design and colors of the new seating from the photos i saw online, but after seeing them in person the seats seem very warm and comfortable. You guys should see the camera under the nose of the aircraft, its pretty cool!

I'll post some photos later online...cheers elal106


P.S. The swiss first class lounge sucks!! An airline like swiss, who promotes quality and a new experience - im disappointed!! But of course money is tight these days...good luck swiss!!

Sorry guys. I only return on Sept. 8th from New York (LX 0017 on Sept. 7th). For this I can unfortunately not join the meeting. But I look forward to arrive at Dock E (or Concourse E or ...  Wink/being sarcastic)

Not too early, some of us have to cross the coutry by train.  Big grin

Edited to add that not only do we have to cross the coutnry but also go through the rather annoying immigration between Switzerland and Elbonia.

Well, I'd say 1000 as always, at the same spot as always (where you can get the tour-tickets)..

Then we'd wait for those that arrive later and move to the new deck once we're complete....

Is that plan ok?

Hmmm...an other ZRH meeting. Of course I am interested to come again but unfortunately I have to wait before I book a flight because I have to check out how much money will be left after my trips to SIN and IBZ next week. I will inform you guys at the end of the month.

Hi Robin,

what a coincidence. I am returning from SIN on Friday and will be flying to IBZ on Sunday (holidays from the holidays  Smile/happy/getting dizzy), also on 4U from CGN. I am traveling with my girlfriend (she booked the trip via 4U because she got it damn cheap as an employee) but I will ask her where our hotel is located on the island, if it is not too far away from the airport I could join you guys for a few hours.

As I said - I will be interested to join my first A.Net meeting that Saturday. I have to arrange everything with my parents and my aunt (wich is, thank God, living about 5ms from the airport).... and let's hope I finally can join you.

I've planed to go to ZRH on Wednesday ( Sep. 3rd ) but now I think I have to look for FRI / SAT / SUN.....

So, I think you can already put me on your list ( with "maybe" ) after my name  Wink/being sarcastic

I am not sure if I can come next week, so you can add me to the list as a maybe. Jurgen (no username Big grin) might also come, but it's also not confirmed yet.

Hello folks

I'm really looking forward to our meeting this Saturday... Here's the list of
who's coming:

Gerardo
Thomas_Jaeger
Teahan
IwantaBBJ
DALelite
Airways
Swissa330 (maybe)
FlySwiss (maybe)
NoelG (maybe)

Pilatus (maybe)
Spotterboy (maybe)
Aviationmaster (maybe)
Jurgen (maybe)

Anyone else wanna come?

Like in the last meetings, we'll meet at the very end of the observationdeck on terminal B (or what used to be "B", I have a hard time getting used to the new names), where the tickets for the sightseeing-tours are bought. We'll stick there for an hour or so, so those that are coming later don't have to worry  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

We'll then do whatever we want, but probably we'll switch over to the new deck....

Looking forward to what promises to be another exciting day - Guaranteed!

Michael
