Zurich to London Gatwick, British Airways

Easy to access via the adjacent railway station, complete with its own shopping mall, Zurich is an ultra-modern airport with futuristic sloping glass walls held up by a grid of white steel. It is a stylish place to hang out, but the sleek bars and restaurants are pricey, while the gates can be a bit of hike from the gateway. The British Airways flight back to Gatwick can be thinly-staffed, meaning you may have to wait for your free drink and bag of nibbles. After you land at the North Terminal, the queues often crawl through passport control and your baggage may be slow to arrive. To catch a train into central London, you will need to take the transit to the South Terminal. All a bit of a faff. 5/10
