Indeed.

It's getting a bit of a hard crossword to solve.

Greek readers or people able to translate are suggested to follow this link too:

If you can read Greek, please do help a bit through the following week by offering info in English.

Site linked above can also be partially viewed in English, using the language bar in the "Eπιλογή γλώσσας" box. Please pick "Αγγλικά".

Yeh me too! Rhodes on the 19th,. Just myself and my 12 year old daughter. I'm dreading them cancelling and equally dreading them not cancelling! We would need more than a week in the sun to recover from a 12 hour delay at the airtport. Fingers crossed for the best outcome.

I have a Lufthansa flight scheduled to arrive in Athens the night of Oct. 19. So far, they are either unaware or not admitting that there are any problems in Athens. Has anyone heard anything about what the airlines plan to do? I'd rather get there early than late. Thanks!
