We are just overwhelmed a bit

the mind games are there in hockey, in football and now also at the Zurich airport. Six of the 15 Swiss-switch in the Check-in-3 are occupied, and two women in Uniform stand ready to distribute the travel-loving masses in the queues. Everything, as before, the corona crisis, with one important difference: There is no mass. Sometimes there is also minutes not a single person.

The few Swiss who enter with Luggage and Ticket in Hand the halls, wrestling often in the last meters to the switch with itself and with the General atmosphere of uncertainty. After the US imposed an entry ban, no one knows more of what's to come in the next few days. "We come back again, if we get in the plane?" This is the question that is of concern to the Dietiker Dimitri Amstein and his partner just most. In a good hours of your flight would take off, the young Couple wanted to travel to Iceland.

Then we would have booked here for a Spa vacation." Now, you go.

For service Providers in the Check-in hall to finally do something. You must decide, which of the under-employed colleagues on the switches you can redeem for a few minutes to shake off the lethargy.

advisors, who know no Council

And the next customers already. The She Erna Gertsch, also a Nurse, traveling with her friend Christine Lagger to Kenya. They were merely concerned with the outward flight, the return trip was not an issue. In a pinch, you would just wait down there until they were again left home, say you in a good mood.
