The last I heard, Olympic was going to turn into Parthenon Airlines in early fall. However, nothing seems to have changed. I wanted to buy some tickets on the airline in early October because they are cheap. Anyone know of any changes happening soon? I'd like to fly the rings before it goes away.

Olympic Airways doesn't exist anymore.
It has already been replaced by Olympic Airlines ... even though the "new" Olympic is not very different from the "old" one ... a crap expensive unreliable airline.
I flew them twice YUL-ATH and the product was just fine. The price was inline with the other carriers and so I chose them for the convenience of the nonstop.
Service was good and all of my requests for extra "whatever" (food, drink, etc.) were granted without hesitation. During quiet time they set up a little self serve food station in the galley where anyone could go there and help themself to a drink/snack. IFE was passable, flights arrived/departed on time, etc.
Nothing fancy, but definitely not crap in my book ... perhaps I got lucky.
