Yes, the Swiss one is interesting. I’ve not flown there but know people who have. Because it’s in midwinter, at altitude, it presents special problems for the pilots. Specifically, the gas pressure is low because of the cold and you have to pressurise the tanks with nitrogen. Every pilot watches the gas gauges like a hawk.
