EWR to GVA on Continental with my wife and daughter. Other than significant delays due to New York airspace GVA was a breeze. We cleared customs in minutes walked across the street to the Swiss Rail Station validated our Swiss Railpass and were on our way in less than 20 minutes. The return effort was similarly benign (except for a two hour Continental delay with the inbound aircraft from EWR). We took the train right to the GVA airport station and check-in took all of 10 minutes. Cleared security in 10 minutes tops. But admittedly boring and very limited selection of airport eateries and shops. Compared to LHR or CDG GVA is a great gateway.
