Recently watching a clip of What my Line from Sept 1957 The guest host says he is filling in for John Daly as he is on the First Non Stop Flight from New York to Athens heading on vacation. I have tried searching and seem to keep missing the right keywords or something but I can not find what that flight was (Airline, Eq).
Can anyone please help. Below is the clip at 5m12s he tells about the flight.

My only conflict with the Boston article is that the Live Air date for the show that Daly was on vacation for that week was in Sept '57
The article looks like it says the flight mentioned is in Nov '57

Marson's book says even the Rome nonstop didn't start until October 1957, and I don't think the book mentions a later Athens nonstop. The 12/57, 4/58 and 7/58 timetables don't show one, so looks like it was a special.
