We typically fly down on the Thursday for a whole day Friday and most of the day Saturday at the show. Accommodation in Friedrichshafen itself is normally difficult to find so we normally stay at the picturesque town of Meersburg, a little to the west on the lakeside. I will start looking at accommodation for there fairly soon. Arrivals are subject to slot times, slot allocation being opened up just a week before the show.

A good alternative is fly to Konstanz (EDTZ) and catch the high speed ferry across to the show.

Yes indeed.
Very welcoming at Konstanz - Landing and parking for the three days was only a few Euros and I seem to recall the ferry being around 20Euro return, with a (free?) bus service running regularly between town and the show.

Best bit for us VFR types though was the freedom to arrive and depart Konstanz at a time of our choosing, which was handy in tricky changeable weather.
