Never Say - Never Again
It usually comes back to bite me in the bum. Last year when we flew to Greece on Olympic Airlines I swore never to do so again. Well guess what, we're flying Olympic. What has changed? Not much really although Steve tells me his trip in April was more pleasant than normal and he was give a pillow a blanket and earphones. Those were the things missing on last year's flight. Since we're not talking short hop here but an almost twelve hour flight I consider these necessities. My biggest beef though was that between dinner at eight and breakfast at eight in the morning it was impossible to get juice. I was told that if I got some then other people would ask as well. Water was offered.
So why are we flying Olympic? It's a non stop (sort of) and they have a larger luggage allowance than any other airline. Including the carry on we have two hundred and eighteen pounds of stuff. I think it's actually a bit more but I'll let Steve sweet talk the check in people and maybe they will let it go.
I found this video last year on another blog (can't remember which one, sorry) and saved it for the appropriate time. This seems to be it. Watch it if you want a chuckle. Turn up the volume and listen closely, the Captain has a very strong accent but is really funny..
I don't know when I will next blog but I will make it to the local Internet joint to answer emails. I will also be in Germany for a week starting Saturday. I'm looking forward to seeing my friend and my elderly aunt and uncle.
Wish us a good trip...
