Hey guys just wanna say that I am leaving for Greece tomorrow. My flight is on Alitalia from Miami-Milan-Athens. I will try and gain access to the cockpit (thanx for all your advice on ways on asking the FA's), and I will have tons of pics and a trip report when I come back in August. I hope all of you have a cool summer!

I hope you have a great trip. I have flown Alitalia many times from JFK-MXP and back and I have enjoyed them thoroughly. I was allowed access to the cockpit on two occassions. At the gate, I was allowed access to the A321 cockpit and i was allowed into an Alitalia MD80 cockpit just before the descent to Rome on a flight from Palermo Sicily. Just ask nicely and they should let you in. Again, have a great trip.

I can't wait to hear a trip report from you...I was hoping to go to Greece on a school trip last year, but it was cancelled. The same trip is planned for next year though... Sounds like you're staying for quite a while...hope you have fun.
P.S. I've got some Greek blood running through my veins (my grandfather is 100% Greek), and I want to fly to Greece someday...maybe I'll get the chance next year!

Kalo taxithi. I wish I was in your shoes. I haven't been back to Greece in many years. Unfortuneately at this time of my life, it doesn't look like I'll be back for a while. Take advantage of these breakes while you can.
