I had a long stopover in Zurich a few weeks ago. It is a nice airport. The Swiss Business lounge was a great experience and helped the 6+ hours go bye fairly fast. The best part was the view from the lounge. Here are a few pictures I took walking to the lounge and from the lounge. The ;lounge is actually in another terminal. I had to go thru security twice (no passport control), but it was worth it.

    The IT plane had probably been repossessed by creditors. Ha.

    I simply love these machines.
    All the photos you shared are awesome, thanks for going through security and take those pictures, they really worth it.

    The one I liked the most is the A340, even when I don not know a lot of the types of airplanes I really liked the photo.

    As I said, great pictures!
    Thank for Sharing!

    Looks like a delinquent IT A330 and an old DC-8 used for fire training.

    Must be nice landing somewhere where you can see the alps in the distance. I don’t think I would want to be landing or taking off and see that fire drill plane!

    Do you have pictures of the actual lounge?

  7. unroadwarrior says:

    @Walter, I will go thru my photos. As far as I remember there were multiple people in the lounge all the time I was there. I do not post pictures with other people in them unless I can get their permission. I will see if I can find any ‘sanitized’ photos.
