FCL A - Coat Storage Question
 

Travelers departing in winter and flying to warmer countries can also deposit their coat free of charge in a lockable wardrobe facility.
Has anyone ever used this service? Does it still exist? And when getting back to pick-up the coat (and maybe have breakfast) - will someone pick-up and store checked luggage from the belt downstairs?

I had planned to use it last year, but I was in transit and was told by FCL A staff that the coat check is handled by another service located somewhere in the check-in area, landside. I could then go out and do it, but I would need to pass security to get in again. Same to pick it up on the return. I decided that was too much hassle.

So the coat check has nothing to do with FCL A and itís best suited for travelers originating in ZRH.

I enquired about this recently and apparently it is in a small, locked area of FCL A and only the LDs can access it. They said itís first come first serve as space is limited.

After a second look, my experience was a bit dated, Nov 2018, time flies faster than I thought. Good if they moved the lockers into the FCL now.

Transit pax should be mindful though that in case of irrops you might not have your return flights going through ZRH anymore....

Did anyone on this forum got turned down because of lack of space?

In the end we didn't use the coat storage, hence I cannot report back.

Re. checked luggage - this was taken off the belt and could be picked-up at the Swissport luggage desk. It was nice to have breakfast at the A lounge, rather then coming home to an empty fridge at 7am....
