Wanted to say that I am still alive
Winter is coming in with rain and some snow mixed in, but not too much sun lately. With the winter, the WEF is approaching as well. Here are some infos for those interested:
- The observation deck on Terminal B has been closed recently: This Terminal will be rebuilt and once finished, serve as a Schengen-Terminal. The one on Dock E is also closed.

Even though the Decks are closed, spotting is still possible here (as a matter of fact, I haven't been on one of the decks for ages). Here are some from the last weekend.

And of course, one from the spot on the parking garage overlooking the threshold of RWY 28:
Edit: Sorry, missed one: Air Canada is flying on behalf of Swiss on their rotations to Montreal until December 15th, using their A330's
That's it for tonight, friends. Have a good one!
