Goodbye to Eurolot

by stawka (March, 2015)


Reason for Stay: Too cheap for a hotel room
Where: Airside
Pros: safe, warm, quiet, clean
Cons: airside, cleaning


I made 24h spotting trip to say goodbye to Eurolot, which suspending operations 31st March 2015. Arrived 20:00 and stayed airside for night (always much safer than landsie). After some time of taking photos, I looked around for a place to sleep. In gates A area seats are in '(' shape and grouped 222 with baggage shelf between, so not even tried them. Airside center looked better, one pax was already sleeping there. But the best place was in the center of gates B pier - big area of flat and soft seats, grouped 3, 31, 3131 and similar. Temperature was ok, i layed in t-shirt with sweater flipped over my back to keep kidneys warm. Lights were dimmed in the night and after turning over facing seat they were not disturbing at all. Earplugs was also not necessary, as it was completely quiet (without any announcements) from 11PM, until some cleaning actions around 1AM. Cleaning machine actually moved once in the alley between my bench and another, but after few minutes silence returned. My alarm clock was set at 5AM and at this time there was some people waiting for morning departures and talking, so going back to sleep was not an option. It was still dark night, but I refreshed myself in restroom (clean, but tight) and went to first spotting location. While walking through airside, I have not seen any good place even to sit. Some constructions in progress, few policeman walking around. Summarizing - staying airside was a very good choice. WiFi - its free for one hour, then you have to wait seven hours to reset. Access code is obtained via cellphone number and probably it also remembers IMEI or MAC. So after one hour you have to use another cellphone with another number.

Zurich Airport Review

(Guest Review) I had a 24h layover in Zurich Airport from 6:50 am to the same time the following day (Bangkok Zurich Stockholm). Landside is horrible. Staying on landside is really not recommendable as there are no comfortable seats (except at a cafe in the airport centre and at starbucks). There are two supermarkets in the airport centre where you can get to know Swiss prices, but they are still cheaper than the sandwiches and drinks from the restaurants and cafes. I wouldn't know where I could sleep staying landside, since I though the Starbuck sofas where pretty small. Walked around for 2h to find a power outlet and couldn't find one that does not have the Swiss type (which is different to European/ British/ American types). Got my boarding pass at noon and crossed over to airside. Much better options: power outlets everywhere, good sleeping possibilities on the benches. Around Gate B 31 there where some other overnighters and the light was dimmed around 11pm. No noises at night and no cleaning. Lights come back at 4am. There is only free internet for one hour. If you use a different phone number to get a second code you still have to wait for 7 hours until you can surf again. If you want to stream movies just let them load while you browse works fine. There is also a transit hotel which is expensive. You pay 20 CHF/Dollar for a simple bench with blanket and from 40 CHF/Dollar for a bed!

Worst day of my life

by solange (March, 2014)


Reason for Stay: Connection between flights
Where: Landside
Pros: Nothing
Cons: EVERYTHING


F*** This was a nightmare. I had to take a flight from Madrid to Oslo with a scale of 12 hours in Zurich. My stay was at the airport all night, IT WAS HORRIBLE !!!, I did not find a restaurant or fast food open, I had to steal water from a coffee store because the drinkers did not work, whenever I found some guy from staff of cleaners and I asked where I could find a safe place to sleep, they said that they did not speak English. The wifi did not work. Everything was dark, and all the time that I never saw even a watchman or policeman or someone similar, there were some creepy people also stayinf there, and I was very scared. Its not at all a nice place for a young woman alone to overnight, Now I think that overnight in Central Park is safer!!! I hope to never return to this place. This can not be a Flight Airport Connection, and does not provide any service !!!! no water !!!!

(GUEST) I am always happy when I have a layover in this airport because it has such a soothing atmosphere. No matter where I am coming from, when I enter the terminal I just feel at peace with myself!
