does anybody knows if it is a habbit for flight from Athens to be late and big time late like few hours
Would have helped if you said which airline but the simple answer is that whilst the majority of flights operate on time or at least close to it there is always the potential for longer delays or even cancellation on any specific route/date due to any number of operational reasons e.g. bad weather/technical problems etc.
In my experience using larger airlines can sometimes minimise the risk as they could have access to more aircraft if there are technical problems.
Hey litva90:-) That appears to be Aegean's morning flight out at 8:50a..FWIW, have flown them.. they are a good, reputable airline with a good customer service record..but of course, no one can predict what goes on on the ground..weather..whatever, to cause a delay so no guarantees;-) ENjoy!
Was it a delayed take off; as it's a four hour flight , an extra "few " hours seems to be a long time to be stacked over London.
Aegean has a good reputation as did Olympic, before they dropped their London flights.
If you use FLIGHTSTATS.COM....you can checK ANY route. I checKed Athens-Heathrow for YESTERDAY (WED 6/1) and all flights were on time or early. (That doesn't mean tomorrow they wont ALL be late!!)
There are about 8 flights including codeshares...
And yesterday Easyjet had two flights to GatwicK, both on time.
The poster has , with follow up queries ,has mentioned this question eleven times on the London Forum. Seems to very in secure.
I've flown BA a number of times from Athens - don't recall ever having any delays
thank you to you and all who replied
