I guess we should wait till end of next month
and should the government really cancel the flights
I`m pretty sure that other airlines will fill the leak which OA left,
SAA (meanwhile) announced to start the JHB run, as soon OA stops,
THAI wants to overtake the Australian Route and operate Athens as a hub
EMIRATES also want to operate Athens as a hub
DELTA will sure increase its Athens service, filling the leak with a 777
CONTINENTAL had also announced to start the Newark - Athens run (yes they still have plans, possible to run next summer schedule (2003))
(for those who think, but how? There`s no OpenSky agreement, the two main reasons why the US & Greece hadn`t an OpenSky agreement,
(1) was a terrorist group called 17 November which were targeting US citizens, has bin "eliminated" last month.
(2) the old Airport was a huge security leak, but by now members of the US senate visited El.Venizelos and expressed high satisfactory with its security.
G.Bush Jr. Also stated happily last month that the problem with "N17" is gone
and there is no further handicap between the US and Greece,)
so I guess OpenSky will not be a problem
